Gill has an amazing community of people working together for a common goal of succeeding in life. The campus is much larger than any school around and you definitely see a benefit to that as a student. Contrary to belief Gill that gill is not diverse; I believe, as an Iranian descendant, that it is extremely diverse. We have students from all over whether its from Europe, China, Iran, South America, and even Sri Lanka. One of my best friends is Sri Lankan, Sri Lankans make up less than .3 percent of the US population, and they say Gill is not diverse! Our teachers at school are some of the most profound people i have ever met. These amazing people will not just make sure you know material for a test, but they strive to get you to think about these things in a bigger picture. As a member of the soccer team i feel like there is no better place to go if you want to improve upon yourself, and play at a premier level, than at Gill.

Gill St. Bernards is a great school, the teachers and resources are good and it really did help me succeed in college. I loved most of the people in my grade and have made lifelong friends but the administration was the sore spot in my time there. The administration has gone through some changes after I graduated but when I was a student there was very little involvement of students in student government and we constantly felt like our voices were quieted. Often times it seemed like the administration would ignore concerned students and teachers and would only really do something if a parent came and complained. Besides problems with the administration the teachers are fantastic and many times, I've had classes that have been life changing especially on my Units. Still highly recommend the school for the teachers and the students and hope that the administration can change things.
Gill St Bernards has been a wonderful experience for my elementary-aged children. The faculty is the warmest, most caring, and talented group of people I know. Their commitment to the children is demonstrated not only through their academic teaching, but in the social and emotional learning that takes place in the school, ensuring that children are taught the importance of morals and values like kindness, respect, courage, perseverance, and others. I couldn't ask for a more well rounded and balanced education for my children.
