    "My daughter had her best year of school ever this past school year and I believe it was due to the great leadership of the new principal and her wonderful teacher. This year all the kids had music, pe, and computer lab twice a week with teachers specializing in those subjects and art once a week in the new art studio. That's all new and it was brought in by the new principal. Several times I had concerns and he was either available for an unplanned meeting (the door is almost always open to parents) or I was able to make an appointment to see him later. It is clear he is making changes and implementing new programs at the school. Some people always get upset by change, but I have seen positive results and believe that for every negative person upset by the changes there are many more who are looking forward to what's next. One thing I'm very happy about is that some of the teachers will not be returning - they were unpleasant to children and parents and always had a negative attitude."

    "We have had a new principal from the year of 2013. He is around mid-40s or so and young for a principal, which we first thought that he could be better than the previous one because he could have a lot of energy and could be very enthusiastic. (I had no problem with previous principal though.) And as a matter of the fact, he sounded very enthusiastic AND innovative at first. But he just turned into the person who just says things and does nothing what is said, such as "My door is always open", which is so untrue. This school was chosen for CA distinguished school when he was NOT around. I have already seen that this school is going down in education and funding. As long as he is going to be there, Gardner is not going to be better like it used to be. He is ruining what the previous principal had built and created. By the way, this is my second posting. I guess someone reported to delete it. But this is The FACT and I would like to share what we have experienced. I have not put anything bad. Be aware that that is how they do. They keep deleting bad feedback for them and keeping the good ones just to make the school LOOK good, which is NOT."

    "I am so excited that my son will be attending Gardner Street Elementary school this coming Fall. I went on the school tour and was really impressed by the principle. The upgrades to the infrastructure and playground are really great. Also, the hiring of music, art and gym teachers makes it more well rounded than many public schools in the area. There is an edible garden and a library too. The parents I met were all really excited and involved in the school. I am looking forward to joining them."

    "My daughter just entered kindergarten at Gardner Elementary and thus far it has been a pleasure. We decided against sending her to a very popular Magnate school in favor of sending her to a school in our neighborhood. We are so happy with our decision because our daughter is having a wonderful experience. Her teacher has a way of making the kids school work fun and engaging. I have a very difficult time tearing my daughter away from class at the end of the day. They have two options for the after school program, Aviva, and Star. The Aviva program is fee based and promotes academics, arts and crafts and lots of play time. My child comes home from school every day with her homework complete. The Star program is free for kids in first grade and up. The kids in Star Program are very busy with Music, dance,cooking, arts and crafts and many other enriching experiences. The new principal is from Wonderland Elementary an has his stuff together. He is attentive, caring and welcomes suggestions. He has big plans for this school and a lot of support from the parent led group "Friends of Gardnerville". The future is very bright at Gardner Elementary and we are very happy to be a part of it."
