    "My oldest daughter prefers a smaller school setting, so when we found GEC we were very excited. They have a small student-teacher ratio, and they employ methods such as peer tutoring, which is nice. They work very hard to make sure the students' grades stay up, and for the most part, the schools is pretty good. Most of the teachers are pretty good; however, there are a couple drawbacks. The biggest drawback is that elective courses are VERY limited and are not always substantive (ie both my daughters came out of the cooking class without learning to cook or the 2 years of Spanish & my daughter can't have a conversation in Spanish). Administration also seems a little behind the 8-ball sometimes. The fall semester can start and they have to use substitutes because the teachers were not hired in enough time to complete their background checks. You can call, leave messages and never have them returned unless your student is in trouble for something. There is also no bus service or late care & no carpool. They have no lockers or extra books so the kids have to carry ALL their books with them every day. Last year we weighed my daughter's backpack and it weighed 36 lbs."

    "Leading Edge Academy and GEC is great school. I have four children that have attended there and my one child was placed at another school for unfortunate events.Overall, our family has grown and had great experiences with the school.Mr. Ziegler is a fantastic leader and his true passion for the kids is always recognized.As for JH & HS, if your child is not a self achiever or a spectacular athlete, then you may want to reconsider for this age group for this school.GEC IS Gilbert Early College for a reason.Children with special needs don't have the necessary resources needed.So if your older JH or HS child is an assertive achiever without needing extra care this is a great school.If your child has special needs JH/HS ask a lot of questions.Every child is unique and many learn in different ways.In closing, this educational institution exceeds standards and definitely is a better option than public school.Ultimately it is our responsibility as parents to do what is right for our children.I do believe a counselor to intervene in discipline is a good recommendation since the school is growing fast.I do believe Mrs. Hallam is a great leader with a very difficult job and responsibilities."

    "You can't be all things to all people but for us, this school has been wonderful. The principal and teachers and open and easy to talk to. They listen to you and really want to be helpful. My kids are thriving in this environment and I would encourage anyone who is looking for a quality school, with quality teachers, that isn't going thru the upheaval of the local school districts in our town, to talk with the principal and staff, and tour the school. It has been a very good choice for us and I am incredibly happy we found GEC."

    "What a wonderful experience for our high school aged daughter. She has primarily utilized the online program but has taken a regular math class with GEC. She is affected by a chronic illness and is thriving at this school. Thank-you Leading Edge HS (GEC)! Mrs. Z is the best teacher she has ever had!"

    "Gilbert Early College has proven to be a success with my daughter being able to bring up her grades. Teachers and staff have embraced my daughter and guided her through the school year. The Coaching staff has also benefited as my daughter has grown exponentially. They do not allow students to not turn in assignments and get away with it. They make the student accountable for the assignments and apply appropriate rewards or demerits/detention as necessary. Students are evaluated individually and help them grow in character and moral values. Gilbert Early College is a school to consider especially with their agreement with CGCC and completing college credit while in high school."
