John Gates Elementary School Reviews
Registered by 5 yr old into Kindergarten at Gates. I was told since she speaks english she might have a hard time being placed in school, not enough english speaking teachers for the lowers classes. So basically because she is hispanic they wanther to take the billingual class so they don't have to have a problem like this and have to have an english speaking teacher for k - 2!!!!!! They should make the students k - 2 take english and have them learn other languages at home!
I absolutly loved this school! I went here in 3rd and 4th grade, the teachers were totally amazing! I don't know why anyone would say this school is bad.
Overcrowded. Too few teachers. The school gets more money from the goverment than any other school and they continue to fail in their test scores. As a former student and a parent with my son in this school, WE ARE IN DESPERATE NEED OF REFORM!!!!!
