The staff at Gaiser is rude, they are over the top on dress coding girls, not boys. They don't give fair discipline. Someone could get in a fight and get suspended for 2 days but someone could wear a piece of paper on their shirt and almost get expelled (Which has happened) One of the teachers told me to not bother looking for a job, no body will hire me because I wore a piece of paper saying the dress code is unfair and it needs to be changed because it does. Guys can wear whatever they want and teachers wont do anything but if a girls shows more then half her thigh she gets put in ISS? The teaches are outrageous. One time I got suspended because someone told my best friend to kill herself and I walked her to the counselor. Note that the person who told her to kill herself didn't get in trouble at all. I use to love school and love learning, this school has changed that. I hope everyone sees this and hopefully you don't make your child go here because it is hell on earth. (:

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.
