Out of the three or four weeks that I was there, I had maybe one good day where the kids were behaved and respectful. I could've had more with them, but sadly the teachers didn't seem to do much with helping the students and instead just handed them off the disciplinary supervisors that were in charge at the school. It didn't solve the problems within their classrooms. I do hope that a lot of these students and even the teachers that I observed can turn things around and become better teachers.

I do not feel the same schooling as for the special needs children. Just my opinion from placing a k4 both times and I do not see a real difference of learning structure as far as his writing skills nor reading skills and he's been placed in 1st and I feel he should have been held back for better improvement.

This school is phenomenal in so many ways. As a parent, of a child with special needs who is in a wheel chair. This is one of the most comfortable and cozy environments ever. They meet my son's needs in every aspect. Therapies, speech, OT, vision and swim are just some of the additional things offered at this great school. Everything is very accessible and easy to use. The staff has been wonderful. Each year we have been lucky to work with highly trained teachers and professional staff members. The principal is also very friendly and approachable. Keep up the good work Gaenslen you are an awesome school. You deserve a 5 plus.

The school is has highly dedicated and professional staff. The special needs and regular education curriculum allows children with disabilities and regular education students the opportunity to work side by side. Academics and empathy are cultural norms at this school. I am offended by a previous post that suggests special education students and regular education students cannot learn in the same building. That was an extremely ignorant statement. Gaenslen is a phenomenal place and great things are beginning to happen there!
