    "My daughter has been attending Elbridge Gale since Kindergarten. She is entering her final year in fifth grade this year. She is a very smart girl with excellent grades. Every year I mention to the teachers to keep her busy because she is a very active and a talker. This has been our only challenge. Some teachers know how to handle active kids but a few really need to adapt. Some absolutely fabulous teachers that encourage and connect with the kids are Ms. Koy ,Mr. Scazzaro ,Mrs. Saxon and Miss JB. They have all impacted my daughter in the most positive way. If you are a working parent, the aftercare program is one of the best!! They have homework time, snack time and various activities to stimulate every child's imagination. I would highly recommend this school."

    "It's a good school, but if you are a parent with multiple aged children and one happens to be in kindergarten, be prepared to make two lines at dismissal. The principal has taken the liberty to dismiss K students through the bus loop at 1:40 pm. Afterwards, you must go through the front of the school and sit in another line and wait for 2:05 dismissal for you other child/children. That must be fine and dandy for stay at home parents. I'm surprised no other parent has complained, and if so, that nothing was done.I was told it was not School Board policy to use the bus loop to dismiss non-school bus riding children, but no one seems to want to act upon the inquiry. I know this has been an issue before, as I recall getting a memo and a message a year ago concerning K dismissal procedure changes late in the school year. I just can't recall the issue since it did not apply to me. God forbid you are late, as you are spoken down to like a child, to say the least. Adding insult to injury, no other elementary school in Wellington dismisses siblings separately either....HMMMM"

    "In May I went to EGES to get information on their VPK program. The first receptionist I met, a Hispanic woman, was very patient and informative providing me with an application and contact info for if I had any questions. I came back a week later to turn in the application it was about 5 minutes before the office closed, I was let in by an employee and was told that the receptionist was in the back but would be out to assist me. This was a different receptionist from my first visit and when she came out she asked me how did I get in and told me that the office was closed and that i had to come back another day. I was a little upset and gave her a pass as she was probably having a bad day. I did came back to turn in the application she was more pleasant and helpful. I met with the principal who was at first was dismissive but after completing the tour was very engaging and informative. Now flash forward to August, a week before school starts, i receive several calls from the school to confirm my sons attendance and that I have to meet with the teacher sometime on Friday but that she will call me to confirm. It's Thursday night and no call...I will check back with another review"

    "Elbridge Gale has been our first experience in the public school system. As a parent I consider myself a dedicated partner in our children's academic success and all too critical at times. My son is a gifted, highly energetic challenging child and the teachers and principal has been extremely supportive in meeting his developmental and educational needs. Our experience has been one surrounded by caring, enthusiastic teachers. If I had one complaint, I would love for opportunities for more community building among the parents. All too happy, Parent"

    "This is the best school my son has attended by far. The staff is friendly and helpful, they treat all kids respectfully and the teachers work hard and celebrate academic improvement. My son is happy to go to school. He has no friends because the kids in 5th grade are very clique and can be very unfriendly but this is very secondary to us. I would love to see more team building effort in class. I am very happy with the quality of the teaching, which is the main goal. Five stars and a high five."
