    "Gillespie has been an overall great school for my children, they are learning things that most schools don't teach and as a young parent it is great to see my kids learn about technology and have a chance to learn things that i didn't learn at there age. Gillespie is a wonderful school...."

    "In recent years, Gillespie has improved scholastically. It offers 21st century technology throughout the learning experience with three (3) computer labs and smart boards in every classroom. The school is no longer on probationary status and is making strides everyday. Go by the school and see the new playground. The school sign in front is updated with activities and events happening each day. As a community member, the strides made at Gillespie have been remarkable. Kudos to the teachers, administration and staff for their commitment and accomplishments. Sharon Banks-Pincham, LSC member"

    "Not at all what I expected it to be the curriculum is horrible in that school. The principle fires help and assistants that can handle unruly kids better than she can. My son has not even participated in writing cursive language and he is already in the 8th grade."
