  • Headed downhill fast. Parent 05/09/2016
    My children have attended GSA since kindergarten. Until this year, they have loved every minute of it. They couldn't wait to go to school. However, this year all of the love and eagerness has faded. The teachers do not seem to know what differentiation is or how to handle students with ADHD. They... More
  • The best school you will ever witnessStudent 10/09/2015
    It is the best school you will ever witness in your entire life. If I could feel the overwhelming and wonderful sensation of stepping into GSA every day, I would. The sense of community is one like no other school. Go there. Now. You won't regret it.
  • ITS THE BOMBStudent 10/09/2015
    I've been going to GSA since the school has opened in 2011. I was in 5th grade then and now I'm in the 10th. All I've seen in these past couple of years are growth and resilience. This school is full of every different kind of person and every one will lend open arms. The teachers are positive, upbeat... More

  • Great SchoolParent 01/29/2015
    We are so pleased with the education our son has received at GSA. He started as a Kindergartner and was not reading when he started but was reading Dr. Suess books by September. They care very much about the students and families. They routinely use money from dress down days to raise money for students... More
  • Great School with Several different outlets for the KidsParent 01/14/2015
    We have been a part of this school since 2011 and have been extremely pleased with the results of my child's academic level and the attitude about learning. Like any other school your child goes to, there are kids that 'bully' other kids around and this has happened to my son but was handled by the staff... More
  • Keep Looking!Parent 12/18/2014
    This school is full of Catholic families and therefore very cliquey. I wasn't even able to volunteer because we were not part of the "in crowd". They are supposed to offer a more individualized approach but our child was never challenged, despite our constant requests to give her more work to prevent... More
  • Enrollment/application?Parent 11/12/2014
    We are currently visiting schools for my daughter who will be entering kindgarten next year. I have attempted to reach GSA-Elementary School several times in order to schedule a tour and have never heard back from the school. Additionally, their website says their application process is from 9/1 through... More
  • Highly DisappointingParent 10/08/2014
    Maximum class size of 23 is not true. We left this school because the principal combined 4 classes into 3 for both second and third grades, raising the class size to 28 students, despite tons of parent complaints. The administration does not listen, staff turn-over is very high and there have been ... More
