    "John Gill is in a great neighborhood and there are concerned people who aren't giving up on it. The campus is lovely, the environment friendly, and we had mostly positive experience there for K-2. Unfortunately, during our time there the multi-age program (the main thing that attracted us to JG in the first place) was taken away. A group of parents fought hard to keep the program but we were overpowered by the district who claimed the mulit-age program was bringing the school down and that big changes had to be made. The next year, no big changes were made and the best teachers left the school. We are not at JG this year (simply because it was not academically challenging), so I can't speak to what is happening there now. However, please note that there is a new principal, a new vice principal (we had no VP before), and JG is on the district's radar as a school in the process of transformation. There are still parents and neighbors who care a lot about John Gill. We are keeping a close eye on its progress, and are hopeful we can join in helping turn it around so that we can send our kids back. There is talk of starting Mandarin immersion. John Gill has a lot of potential!"

    "we promoted out of this school this year thank goodness!! It started as an amazing school when my oldest began the multi age program however over the pass few years the school has lost all the amazing teachers and has gone down hill bad!! Also if you are not hispanic and do not speak spanish you will have no hope at this school because they only cater to the hispanic culture the last year of the PTA ran but some one who had every child best interest at heart was last year Michelle Masher is now gone and the hispanic mothers have taken that over.. I would not reccomend to anyone"

    "My child went to this school a few years ago and we transfered to Orion Alternative to get a more nurturing environment where active involvement is encouraged. As far as I understand, there is no longer a multi-age option, which is a shame because that was one of the best things about John Gill when we were there a few years ago. Just wanted that to be clear here as many older reviews mention how great the K-2 and 3-5 mixed age classrooms were."

    "i remembered last year when i got promoted from 5th grade. this school will always be with me. i had the best teachers ever. i always had a great time at this school but now im in a charter school with my best friend from this school. last year i gave a speech on my promotion and all of my teachers thanked me for saying in my speech of how much they helped me with learning even the teachers that were teaching at the moment herd of what i said and thanked me the other day. all i wanted to say was that John Gill was such a great school to be in as a student."
