The staff at Gordo elementary school are very involved with each and every student that is enrolled there. The faculty and staff always have plays, contests, school parties and beauty walks. I live in Carrollton, Alabama which is a small town, where everybody knows everybody. This elementary school and high school is connected, but they are all like family. The students, faculty and staff all have a deep love for each other. The security there is unbelievable, they make sure their students are protected. There is one way in and one way out and when you walk in the front door, you are stopped as you walk by the office. This isn't the only good thing about Gordo elementary school, the best thing is the academics. Everyone of those teachers teach those children with the best of their ability plus some. When these kids enter high school these kids are ready to learn more. The teachers makes learning fun.

Gordo Elementary is all about money. The school staff are rude to everyone unless you have money. Children are discriminated against based on the financial status of their parents. School fees are outrageous and students are constantly threatened with paddling for everything to the point that even good students are stressed and exhibit anxiety that spills over at home. If another school were available, many children would no longer be there but as it is, there are no options. You cannot threaten children with punishment just because they don't work as fast as you think they ought to or because they read too slow. The staff at this school need to be replaced with teachers who genuinely care about their students.
There are VERY few teachers who do still care here but most have given up! The current principal is awesome!
