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 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.
Everyone and I mean every person from the Secretaries to the Custodians and Cafeterias, all the Associates and Teachers to the Principals put in 100% for our kids! Each of our kids matters to everyone and Gilbert Schools make sure our children are successful! I know my high school son will be ready for college, because of the people there who made it happen!
