    "This school had changed in positive way with new principal Mr. Rosner, who is dynamic, attentive and full of new ideas for our kids. School coordinator Ms. Lali been great and available to assist with parents concerns, she is sooo wonderful that I can't even find words!!office people are pleasant -especially Mrs.Prado who's been there for many years. Just want to mention amazing teachers Mrs. Lissitsyna, Ms. Chung, Mr. Mark who very professional, patient, enthusiastic . It is just my opinion but I believe every teacher there is awesome, campus looks clean ( thank you Mr. Mario), garden is a little bright and peaceful place. I wish though they had more shades around field- so kids would have place to read, communicate without being exposed to direct sunlight during PE, recesses or before/after school. Overall it's a Wonderful school !"

    "Gardner Street Elementary is finally becoming the school it should have been. The campus is clean, grass is growing, the garden is flourishing, and most importantly, the teachers are teaching. The new principal has taken some heat for demanding high standards out of his staff, but the teachers that have remained and the new teachers hired are excited to be at the school, their classrooms are beautiful, and they are taking on Writer's Workshop which has already made a difference in my child's life! I can't believe the difference in writing since it started. Change has been hard for some parents, but our kids are the bottom line and THEY are the direct beneficiaries of our new principal that keeps there needs at the forefront of the schools new vision. I'm grateful to have a public school that I am proud of, can walk to, and where I know my child is in good hands."

    "This is my second year at this school, it's my neighborhood school (although we had other options) and I feel that the school keeps getting better and better. Twice weekly music and PE classes, weekly visual arts classes, and edible garden program, a bright and clean campus, a functioning website that is a font of information for parents - those are but a few of the positive changes that the new principal has brought with him. We've got strong group of teachers, staff and parents who are vested in creating a community - that's what leads to the more obvious indicators of a successful school (high tests scores, loads of enrichments, etc etc). The new principal has also encouraged and fostered a cooperative spirit by hosting and attending parent meeting and having an open door policy - and if you pop in his office and find his door closed, you can bet it's because he's spending time with students, helping a new family transition or meeting with teachers to share his ideas on educating our kids."

    "My older child attended Gardner Elementary School where the teachers are wonderful, administrators are professional and there is always a pleasant atmosphere. My son is a high school student now, but he remembers his elementary school teachers really well; especially Ms. Popova. She is the best teacher he has ever had. She is very professional, enthusiastic, patient and kind. She knows how to find a special approach to every child and helps kids succeed. My son still remembers all the exciting projects they did during the year and the activities she had planned for them. My younger daughter is in first grade now, but unfortunately she was not able to get into Ms. Popova s class because they only assign English language developmental students now. This was very upsetting for us, but we know that it is a real fortune for whoever filled that spot and they are in for a terrific experience!"

    "I can't believe the difference in this school since we first arrived! The halls are brighter, the floors are shining, there's grass on the field ... the feeling when we walked in on the first day of school this year was amazing. The school looks great and you can feel a definite change in the energy now!"
