About This School
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See The Theodore R. and Thelma A. Gibson Charter School's test results to learn more about school performance.
In 2011, The Theodore R. and Thelma A. Gibson Charter School had 17 students for every full-time equivalent teacher. The Florida average is 15 students per full-time equivalent teacher.

The Theodore R. and Thelma A. Gibson Charter School Reviews
I am so happy that I placed my child at Gibson Charter. The principal is very involved and knows a lot of the kids by name and so does the staff. We feel like family. My daughter is doing so much better at this school and has learned so much. I also like the curriculum.
Gibson Charter School has exceeded my expectations. Last school year, they started an Algebra I honors class. 90% of the students passed the end of the year exam. I'm looking forward to my child joining their Algebra I class this year.
They really need to be open and honest with the parents about the tests and the score for the school. Allow the parents to ne more involved
My son has excelled at the Gibson Charter School, the teachers are caring. My son has regained his self esteem since attending this school.
My son is doing great at this school.He has refound his self esteem, he has confindence in himself to acheive his goals.The teachers care and put forth maxium concern about the students.
This is a great school in which the administration is reaching our to all of its stakeholders to ensure there is a rich learning environment
Run! Run! in the other direction. This school is horrible my son had five different English teachers in one school year. There is no gifted, honors or advanced classes... It is very unfortunate to see the way this school operates, education is so important and if you value your child's education please enroll them in a better school.
I believe this is a great school and is growing. It provides a lot of great options for the kids in Overtown area such as the performing Arts and the Scholar Program which has been great for the high performance kids. This program allows the student to be moved to the higher grade level and taught at their pace.
I love the Gibson School! The school is located in overtown and there is no other school in that area that cares as much for our kids as this school. I am so happy the Gibson school came into our neighborhood. It was just what we needed.
