School History

School History

Gibson elementary school opened in 1954 and has enjoyed a history of high academic standards, strong parent involvement, and positive student relationships. In addition to a high level of regular classroom instruction, students are given enriching experiences in science and band by highly trained teachers who provide specialized instruction in these areas. We work together thoughtfully to encourage students to think creatively, and work positively in a variety of learning and social situations, which enable them to grow intellectually, socially, and emotionally in a safe learning environment.
At Gibson School literacy is the ability to read, write, and use language in all curricular areas. We have an articulated curriculum to ensure progress in literacy for all Gibson Students. Gibson School is proud of its high level of parent participation and welcomes parent involvement at all levels. We are very thankful for all of our parents’ support and high level of involvement in our school life.
