    "My daughter just entered kindergarten at Gardner Elementary and thus far it has been a pleasure. We decided against sending her to a very popular Magnate school in favor of sending her to a school in our neighborhood. We are so happy with our decision because our daughter is having a wonderful experience. Her teacher has a way of making the kids school work fun and engaging. I have a very difficult time tearing my daughter away from class at the end of the day. They have two options for the after school program, Aviva, and Star. The Aviva program is fee based and promotes academics, arts and crafts and lots of play time. My child comes home from school every day with her homework complete. The Star program is free for kids in first grade and up. The kids in Star Program are very busy with Music, dance,cooking, arts and crafts and many other enriching experiences. The new principal is from Wonderland Elementary an has his stuff together. He is attentive, caring and welcomes suggestions. He has big plans for this school and a lot of support from the parent led group "Friends of Gardnerville". The future is very bright at Gardner Elementary and we are very happy to be a part of it."

    "I'm so excited to have my son attending Gardner this year. It seems like positive changes are taking place all over the campus and I attribute this to the leadership and energy of the new principal. The office staff are friendlier and the teachers are more attentive than ever before. My son says the new rules which allow kids to play where they want and eat where they want are incredible. I think this shows that the school's leaders have a lot of respect for kids and trust in their ability to make good decisions. I'm looking forward to what's next and am doing my part to make our wonderful school even better. Let's keep up the positive and productive energy!"

    "I am a former student, and I've got to say I'm extremely proud of being a Gardner kid. No other school creates that healthy sense of pride in their children, haha. The school is organized, and most of the teachers are top notch. Exception with Ms. Hirata, who made me clean up my friend's throw up off her chair in second grade (thanks!). I am now a freshman in college and my best advice is to make sure your child is tested for the GATE program! Many children aren't noticed in how intelligent they are, and some teachers just aren't active in choosing students to be tested. This usually determines whether your child gets to be in honors classes in middle school, so getting them tested now is just enhancing their education along the road. Also yes, Ms. Popova is an amazing first grade teacher who creates this nurturing, positive atmosphere for the first grade students. Luckily although I was not a Russian speaker (she helps those who have Russian as a first language I believe) I got to be in her class and enjoyed it very much. Ms. Simon is also a great teacher, and so is Mr. Sigler! BEST TEACHER EVER. He will enrich your son or daughter's learning experience to the greatest extent."
