    "I really do not know where people get off bashing this school, the teachers, the principal or opportunities to volunteer. All is false. As a parent of a student of this school I am extremely well satisfied with the education that my child is getting. The school is safe. Test scores have gone up each year. 99 percent of the students are on grade level acoording to testing with AYP. this is a stat that not many elementary schools can boast. The school lunch room has just recently been awarded the "Gold Award of Distiction". This is a national recognition with fewer than 1 percent of the schools in the nation recieving it. This school has a working garden that the students are involved with. I feel welcome when I volunteer my time and I am appalled that this web site can give people a forum to spew inaccurate information and lies with no documentation of its accuracy. This is not fair to the students or the staff who have worked so hard to improve education, improve parental involvement, improve safety, improve the quality of lunches, improve test scores amd pride. I challenge anybody to come to the school and be "big" rather than being "small" by hiding behind such hatred."

    "DONT KNOW WHICH IS WORSE SLOCOMB OR THIS SCHOOL. FOOD WAS SORRY WHEN MY KID WENT THERE. SCHOOL IS CLEAN. BUT NO EDUCATION AT EITHER SCHOOL. VERY RISKY PLACE TO LEAVE YOUR CHILD. NOT SAFE. IF YOU ARE IN GENEVA COUNTY IT IS BETTER YOU HOMESCHOOL OR GET YOUR KIDS IN A PRIVATE SCHOOL. YOUR CHILDREN WILL LEARN NOTHING. NURSE IS VERY INCOMPETANT. YOUR CHILDREN WILL LEARN NOTHING IN THESE SCHOOLS. THE POOREST SCHOOLS I HAVE EVER USED. WE FEEL SORRY FOR ANYONE THAT RISKS LEAVING THEIR CHILDREN IN THESE 2 SCHOOLS. INAPPROPRIATE SUPERVISION. EXCESSIVE SCHOOL SUPPLIES NEEDED. BUSES ARE UNSAFE AND TOO HOT FOR CHILDREN. THE PRINCIPAL IS A TRUE LOSS TO HARTFORD. SURE COULD FIND SOMEONE BETTER WITH MORE EDUCATION AND LEGAL MANNERS AND RESPONSIBILITY. CHILDREN DONT GET ENOUGH TIME FOR LUNCH."

    "This is a very good elementary school since Ms. Birdsong took over several years ago. My wife and I feel that the school is safer and we feel more welcome at the school. They have a lot of incentives for the kids, and they truly care about the students. Test scores have also improved. When our oldest son was there, this wasn't the case."

    "I have 2 children currently attending GCES & I myself was a 13 year graduate of GCES, GCMS, GCHS. My overall experience has been nothing but positive & hope that it only continues in the same direction. Anytime a concern comes up, I feel very confident that I can approach either the teacher/counselor, and/or principal in resolving the matter in a professional manner. If any suggestion could be made, it would be that they try to retain more of the staff each per grade rather than having to swap from 1 grade to the next but I guess that just comes with the changing of times. We just knew from year to year who the teachers were going to be for the particular grades without them being swapped up as much as it is now."
