    "We're a few years out from our firstborn being school age, but have already done a tour with Gilpin. We are excited to "choice" into this school and have our kids get a Montessori education. The principal and teacher we met were very thorough in answering our questions and very positive about the changes happening in the school since it has switched to Montessori. A parent on the tour said parent involvement was good and continually improving. My husband wasn't sure what the big deal about Montessori was until he saw what the classrooms were like firsthand. We're excited to start getting involved!"

    "1 out of 10 rating is so unfair. First, I don't believe test scores tell you anything about anything. But also, these test scores are reflecting an older set of kids who did not benefit from the Montessori method that was brought to the school in the last several years, once the kids going through the Montessori method reach the higher grades, the testing will reflect what's really going on at this school, and it's awesome what's going on! Anyone wondering should just take a tour and see for yourself. It's only a matter of time before this school is one of the coveted schools everyone wants to choice into. We consider ourselves very lucky to live here and have such an awesome public school nearby that is really embracing the Montessori method. The principal is very dedicated, the teachers and staff really believe in what they're doing, and the children are happy and proud too. It's currently underfunded so any parent involvement, especially in raising funds, is essential. Be ready to be a team player and get involved."

    "This is our second year at Gilpin. Both of my children love their teachers and are excited about learning. My mother-in-law has trained and taught in Montessori. She took a tour of Gilpin and was very impressed with their set up and tools. I've seen change at this school within the last two years and I think it's only getting better. I recommend this school if it is Montessori you are looking for. It does need a little help with parent participation but overall - we are happy."

    "Gilpin is a fantastic school that provides Montessori education for the urban initiative. The teachers work their tales off as does the administration. I would not consider sending my children anywhere else."

    "If you have not been to Gilpin during this school year, you really need to take the time to check it out. This school has done a total 180. Was the school underperforming before? Yes. Has it made neccessary and difficult changes to raise the school to a completely different level? YES! It is now a Montessori based school, which provides an excellent environment and foundation for life-long leaners. Gilpin has a new principal, Frank Vincent, who is providing the required leadership to turn the school around. Principal Vincent is in fact, a nationally recognized Montessori educator and administrator. He is a catch. All of the teachers are now Montessori trained. Their in-class materials are beautiful. The school is clean and orderly and the students are focused on learning. Teachers don't find themselves disciplining a few students at the detriment of the rest of the class. They serve healthy meals, made from scratch and are even starting a garden this spring so they can eat the veggies in the fall. Make an appointment for a tour. Check out the school and witness what the school has become!"
