    "Excellent school and teachers. My daughter was having trouble reading in 1st grade. They implemented a reading program for the children that were having difficulty during the school day. After a month and a half of that extra support my child is reading exceptionally well. Its nearing the end of the school year and I am so impressed with how far my daughter has come and the teachers here. They truly have your child's best interest in mind."

    "To sum up my with Gavin Central and not get long winded I will just state that there is an air of tolerance inside the school about bullying. So far I have had to: Call the Principal (several times, futile waste of time), call the Director for the buses (several times, futile waste of time), went through two different Vice Principals in two years, and have had to file a police report! The teachers are hit or miss, some of them are awesome, some go to work to get a paycheck. It's too bad that I bought an awesome house in the area, I will be doing everything in my power to get rezoned."

    "My child is attending first grade at Gavin Central. I'm upset because there is a great LACK in communication between the teachers and parents. I want to play an active role in my child's education and since she has attended this school I feel I'm not able to do that. I want to be involved, come into the class, observe occasionally, help out in the room and I'm not able to do that. I've mentioned this to the teacher several times and I get no where with her. Its very frustrating. We may just consider moving to get her into a different school once this year is over. This is not what I was expecting from this school at all."

    "Gavin is an EXCELLENT school. My son has learned so much in 1st grade that I made sure when we moved , that we stayed in Gavin district. The teachers pay attention to the needs of each child. I knew my son would need speech class, but I didnt mention it to them because I wanted to see if they noticed on their own, and they not only noticed, but set up speech for him and said they want to do all they can for him. I was very impressed. The communication with the teacher is wonderful. The school staff is so friendly and caring. I would highly recommend Gavin to everyone!"

    "I have a special needs child and I feel the school does an excellent job! The teachers and staff are wonderful and they do a great job at helping the kids learn in different ways. They give discipline when needed and positive feedback too! Many teachers have been there for 20-25 years. Remember it takes good communication with the teachers to help your child succeed, you can't put the blame on teachers. I highly recommend this school."
