Giant City Elementary School Reviews
I have been a part of this school for many years and the last few have been heartbreaking. A new administrator may help, but many of the issues there are too far gone. One very serious issue is that the school is ran by the school board and their children--not the principal. The morale is rock bottom and it's a very cold and backstabbing place. Academics take a backseat to school board members wishes and kids. Sad.
So many things have happened in the last few years to cause this school to loose its vision. There are hopes for the new superintentent, but the board is a lost cause--some of them don't even have children at the school, but continue to be controlling micromanagers. Good luck.
My daughter attended this school since Kindergarten and is now going into 8th grade. I would highly recommend this school. We have great teachers, staff and parents. Our academics are rated high and we have a very active PTO and Booster Club doing some great things for the school community. I'm so glad we made the move into this school district.
