    Gullett Elementary School10

    Austin, TX | Travis County

    September 3, 2014


    We transferred into Gullett this year and absolutely love it. The principal and staff work very hard to create an inspiring learning environment for the kids. Gardens outside the classrooms, all types of animals living throughout the campus, and a principal who leads play time on the playground each morning before school - these details and many more create a warm, loving and engaging culture that makes my child excited to go to school every day!

    I went to Gullett in the 70's. My principle was Mr Brandon and my 5th grade teacher was Ms Moore and to this day they share a special memory in my heart. I loved this school and it sounds like from other post their tradition remains strong.

    Not the great school it once was, very little diversity, very little transparency. By the time we took our child out every other child on our block had transferred to private school. We moved to get into a different public school.

    Coming from private school we were a little concerned what the public school experience would be like but Gullett was absolutely fantastic! I love that the kids have windows in the classrooms, outdoor walkways to all the classrooms, and there is a lot of emphasis on connecting the kids with nature. The have a strong recycling program and are working on being a zero-waste school. The parent/faculty interaction has been very good and the school has good parental involvement.

    Gullet turned out to be the best elementary school in Austin! Prior to Gullet, our daughter had attended a prestigious private school. When my husband suggested that we consider it as the school our daughter should attend, I shuttered & wondered how a public school could possibly provide a quality education for our daughter. After visiting Gullet, however, I saw for myself the gem that this school truly is. An amazing life science school, Gullet boasts chickens, sheep, chinchillas, fish, tarantulas, snakes, turtles, bats & gardens, for which the children actively care. The teachers & principal are highly-qualified and enthusiastic about teaching children in this robust, active learning environment. Gullet has proven to be the best elementary school our daughter could have attended. I am so very glad my husband suggested it.

    Gullett is about kids. It is a hidden Austin treasure in one of the best neighborhoods in the city. The teachers care, push the kids to excel but are not singing the hymn of the tiger mother. The school has a great feel. Fifth graders and their parents are sad to leave this elementary school behind. Kids are prepared to excel at the neighborhood school or an AISD magnet. One of the best public schools in Austin.

    Out of all of the years at Gullett I will remember the fun games played, the silly and overall enthusiastic attitude of parents, teachers and staff, and the vast amount of students. There is one thing I will treasure for the rest of my life, the day in 2010 when Texas played Alabama in the National Championship.After school there was so much burnt orange and Texas related music I couldn't see the grass or hear anything else. I am in fifth grade and have gotten accepted into both Fulmore and Kealing so I think you get the academic promises with Gullett. Go Geckos!!!

    Gullett has been an ok experience for my child. The teacher did not seem to be able to handle the "girl drama" nor did she communicate well with us as parents so that we could address the situation at home. Educationally, the school scores high, but did not really attend to the needs of a bored child. On more than one occasion, my daughter said she hadn't learned anything new. They offer a lot of after school activities, which really supplemented the lack of challenging work in the classroom. I would not discourage anyone from going here, but I would recommend that parents stay on top of what is going on in the classroom, because unless there is a problem, open communication is not offered or provided.

    The students at Gullett are friendly, polite, articulate, compassionate, and love to learn. The school environment is safe, nurturing and almost bully-free. I find it a pleasure to work with the teachers, parents, and administrative staff at Gullett.
