A TRUE GEM!!!
THIS is an amazing school. The teachers WANT to be there and appear to really enjoy their jobs, the kids and they CARE. My daughter feels privileged to go to LVA - grateful she was accepted. Drugs and violence don't seem to be much of an issue here. They must keep up their GPA or they are asked to leave.... Theatre, Music, Dance and Language programs are TOP NOTCH!
This is a great elementary school and I feel very lucky that my kids get to go to this school. The principal, Toni Kuiper, is accessible and even makes herself available for a 6pm coffee and talk each month, which means working parents can still be very involved and know what is going on at school. The staff seem to work together on curriculum so there is a lot of continuity. They also have a great Safekey program.
As a new parent to the area and to this school. I found that the staff and administrators were friendly and had a open door policy if you needed to discuss any concerns. I feel that my children are getting a great education from Gehring and that the staff at this school are taking care of my children. There are many resources available to the students throughout the year such as counselors, speech teachers, reading specialist and GATE personnel. If you are looking for a school that offers quality and friendly staff ..GEHRING is the place for you and your family.
A Long Time Ago
Gosh, let's see I went there back in 1995. Man, I'm old. But, I can say when I attended there were great teachers and I hope with time it's gotten even better.
This is a nice place to play after hours basketball. The janitorial service is great and the facility is always clean. It is a great school to play in.
