Gilbert Community School District Reviews

This is a small school in the very center of Iowa. They have pretty good academics, great sports programs, and quite a few options for courses for the size of the school. Many teachers try their best to get the students involved and interested in their subjects, as well as experimenting with different ways of teaching. However, this school has little to no diversity, the student culture involves a lot of drama and division, and they have limited options for courses (such as the only language available was Spanish). I really enjoyed taking classes here, but the social aspect of the school made it less enjoyable.

The faculty cared about the students. Everyone in the school felt unique in there own way that you saw everyone helping each other. The normal public school is a scary place, but Gilbert cares about everyone. It may not be the biggest school district in the area, but with lots of investments, they are able to offer top tier facilities for sports and the fine arts. I participated in both and only have good things to say. Also a plus: the local sheriffs dubbed Gilbert as "the fort Knox of schools". It is the most safe I have ever felt knowing I could learn in peace.
The teachers are very good in all areas, especially English and Math. New Principal at the High School is outstanding. Counselors at the HS are some of the best I’ve ever seen in a public school setting. Caring secretarial staff and good people all across the school environment. Facilities are decent although I would like to see a stronger emphasis on the arts and college going culture (under new high school principal that has been improving). Busing is seriously needed for all families who live 1/2 to 3 miles from the school. Exceptional care by counseling staff for new families who are coming into the school.
