School Reviews

  • Recommended July 01, 2007 - I think this school is very good with lots of caring staff, there is a small problem with alchohol but if you hang out with the right people you wont ever know it exsists. They have and excellent spanish and french teacher and lots of other amazing teachers. There are lots of activities to do at school like choir orchestra, band, art, tech ed. and lots more. They also have after school activities like builders club, step club and some sports. I think there ussually arent a lot of parents at middle schools so theres really no bases for jujment but no, there arnet a lot of parents at Gaiser on a normal day but on open house there are parents checking out there students classes all day. I am presently enrolled in a different school in the district and am trying to switch to Gaiser. - Posted by Student/Alumni
