    "When i went here, i was bullied every day, and it wasnt really noticed by the teachers. One of the teachers blamed what was happening on me and said that because it wasnt happening to anyone else it wasnt happening. I did not enjoy my time here and it would have been a much better experience if someone had done something or said something."

    "I was trying so hard to keep my children at this school since we are out of district, but now I am not so sure i want to keep them there. The Principal and Vice Principal don't return my calls, especially with a bullying situation. There is lack of communication with the teachers. I am a single parent so I try emailing and sending in notes, i get little to no response from the teachers and councilors. I have gone as far as going to the school and I get the brush off from the Principal, he cuts me off when i try to explain something, making me feel like he does not have time for me or my concerns. I am unhappy and will be re locating my children for the next year."

    "The principal is excellent & highly involved. The kids are friendly & well behaved. The teachers are thoughtful & kind. This is one of the better schools in Santa Fe. I would only consider Carlos Gilbert or Acequia Madre over Gonzales. Another plus is that since it is a community school kids can stay through 8th grade. Meaning no transition to middle school. Problems: 1) I wouldn't call the class work academically challenging. 2) the test scores are horrible and tell the entire academic story. There is room here to learn, but these kids should be pushed harder and the teaching staff should have higher expectations of them. 3) good luck on special services! It takes more than a year to qualify for gifted programs or special education programs! No wonder some students are failing! We know of students with learning disabilities who are failing their classes and may have to repeat a grade due to the snails pace of establishing special education services. It's a shame. Overall, great school environment, room to learn if you don't have special needs, but failing to provide academic rigor and timely assessment for special education and gifted programs."

    "Gonzales has been absolutely amazing. My daughter is currently in 8th grade and had transferred from Capshaw Middle School where she was flailing - academically and socially. At Gonzales, her grades have improved immensely. She is a happier child and student. The staff are welcoming and helpful. I can actually talk to them on the phone! And the teachers respond immediately to e-mails. It has been a complete 180 degree turnaround for my daughter! Thank you Gonzales for opening your doors to 7th and 8th graders. Santa Fe needed another middle school option and you have done well."

    "My son transferred to Gonzales from another school this year, and for the first time has had to deal with bulling. It is very upsetting and disappointing since the school is one of the better ones! He has attended different schools before and has never had problems transitioning. The school is trying to educate kids on 'bulling' which does reassure me that they are aware of the issue. Mr. Marino is also very patient and understanding with the kids helping them resolve issues. All in all the school does try it s best considering its resources available to them."
