Goldsmith-Schiffman Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

Goldsmith Schiffman is a fantastic school. I currently have a 5th grader and had two others attend as well. The teachers are excellent. In hard times they are supportive and forward thinkers. Children needing more challenging academia have great options. I have always felt the school is very fortunate to have staff, admin, and teachers that work together and support each other in the common goal of creating successful students. PTA is actively engaged working to help in the school and community to strengthen the students learning and future. Being apart of a school where all the players work together like a team is a dream come true. GO GSES!

School is just a couple of years old. It rates and scores very high for now, but my child has been there about three years and the quality of the teachers and education has completely "tanked" over the past couple years. I blame this mostly on the Huntsville school board which has forced so many changes down the throats of the school system. The previous principal was stellar and set the bar unbelievably high. Unfortunately Huntsville school board decided to move him to another school. The school is still above the curve, but that is mostly because of the parents. Great neighborhood and great parents/kids for the most part. Unfortunately the school board has jumped on the "Common Core" bandwagon, which I am so far not impressed with what so ever. I can see now first hand that it is a very bad idea/system.

GSES has to be one of the best schools in the country! Teachers and parents work together for the good of all students. The teachers go above and beyond to help all students achieve, whether that means helping a struggling student or finding a way to further advance a high performing student. There are many events to help build our sense of community. The movie nights are our favorite! My husband and I both work full time, but are kept in the loop through e-mails, photos of our kids sent to us, and phone calls. There's no place we'd rather be!

This school is just too much.. We were at this school for a year and moved to another school because we were treated as if we were not good enough to be here because both of us parents work and are not constantly at the school. And we do not see fit to be spending money on something every month. This school is more about MONEY than anything. As for parent involvement.. I'm involved in my child's life, but that does not mean I should be at the school weekly nor should I be forcing my child to sit down with homework for 2 hours per day. If we are doing that much homework daily then I'm not sure why I even send my child to school. There is a such thing as too much parent involvement. Kids go to school to learn academics and social behaviors, as well as to become independent, not to have their parents in the classroom every day.

This school is among the best, if not the best in the city of Huntsville for elementary schools. Both of our children have attended this school. All of the teachers we've had for both of our students have been VERY good. They've truly cared about our children and their academics. The (about 600) students are friendly and welcoming and the parents work very hard to provide extra supplies, clubs and activities for the whole school to support the teachers and staff. They contribute with time and financial support and we have traditionally had 100% PTA participation. The almost new facility is spotless and well-kept. The principal, Mrs. Mason was new this year. She does a fine job of leading. Almost all the students have laptop computers they take home and the younger students have access to IPads and other computers at school. One of our favorite events is called Green Fling. It's put on in the spring mostly by parents (more than 100 volunteers) and is supported by the teachers and staff. It's an environmental learning event since our school is walking distance to a nature preserve. FANTASTIC school! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. We are a Blue Ribbon school.
