Gale Elementary Community Academy Reviews
I think that most of the teachers here are good teachers that really care about their students. The school practices "looping" for kindergartners, which means they get to have the same teacher for first grade, which helps with math and especially reading skills. The school is focused on very nutritious meals. Teachers are responsive to the parents. There is a lot of focus on test preparation, although lower scores may reflect the high ESL population (school has ESL classes).
