    "I hope the new principal has made some changes. We had such a horrible experience the last couple of years that we pulled our children out of the entire district. There has to be a reason that at least 20 teachers have left this school in the last five years for lower paying jobs."

    "Our son is in the 3rd grade at John Gill and has attended school there since kindergarten. We've had a phenomenal experience with the school and my son has blossomed, but not just academically. He's grown more confident and he's created nurturing friendships with his fellow classmates. Katherine Rivera joined the school in the fall as our new principal. She's tireless in her efforts to improve the children's test scores while still keeping the art and dance programs that make John Gill so special. I'm really excited to see the additional improvements that will be made in the coming months and years."

    "My son is in second grade and we've had a wonderful experience at John Gill. He has excelled at his academics, made great friends and participated in wonderful dance and art programs. The aftercare Reach program is also an amazing and caring resource."

    "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"
