School Reviews

  • Recommended July 16, 2014 - I am a parent of two children at GSES and we have been very happy with the school - Grades 4 and Kindgergarten. All children at GSES receive a personalized/individualized education experience and this has been excellent for our kids. We enjoy the safe, family feel of the school and the different extracurricular & enrichment activities like sports, art and languages. The teachers are great and kids couldn''t be happier! GSES is a wonderful school and community for our family. - Posted by Parent
