    "The GCS K-6 campus has stellar and dedicated teachers. I strive to keep the teachers updated with the common core curriculum and best teaching practices for our diverse student population. Our teachers choose to remain here for our smaller class sizes. We recognize our teachers every year with luncheons, gifts, and awards. Our student attendance has increased, and we always have a waiting list of potential students seeking to attend our great school. I continue to be impressed with the fact that our CELDT staff have been able to re-designate 30% of our CELDT student population this year to English Language Speakers. We continue to set goals and achieve them. Our school has an excess of in-class educational hours to afford us this opportunity to give the students one day of fun, creative educational time per month. I will continue to ensure that our school functions effectively and efficiently. And most important that our students will be prepared for the middle school and higher education. This is a school of choice, everyone at the Guidance Charter is here because they want to be here. Dr. Palacio"

    "Our new High School opened last August. Being brand new, we had our challenges and we faced them head on. As a result, we achieved a six year WASC accreditation and the prestigious Civic Learning Award of Merit! Our students are superstars! We help them to achieve by providing them with individualized plans for success! This year we offer 3 pathways, online accredited courses and individual student tablets. We are on the right track for success! The best is yet to come."

    "I have five. (5) children now at both campuses; and can't say enough GREAT things about this school. I am saddened to see the negative comments by this parent of a Senior; first, I know she only had ONE child and the fact that the school went out of their way to ensure these students had the same experience and activities as the large schools in the community. These students had courses, in which there were only 6 students. The school provides the "community" and responsiveness of a private school for FREE. It is a true blessing to have this school in our community!!! This year every student will have a FREE tablet and ALL online books! The teachers are best if the best and I am grateful for their service!!! My children will be there (2) of them for the next 10 years!!!!"

    "I have 2 students that went to this School last year and it was so bad like one of ther other parents that made a comment . About it being unorganized so true I had a son that just graduated there in May and it was so bad they graduated with the 8th Graders and the whole time the director of the school was talking about how good this school is , And What there getting next year hmmm that's what we were suppose to get this pass year and didn't get .. And he was so concerned about the mayor being there it was so very sad that my son didn't have a great last year of higih school .. Took my other son out of this school .. And they let all there security go and there only keeping 1 because they spent to much money on the K9 dog Rita .. So think twice on sending your child here next year ."
