Daycare where education comes to die. Rich kids think they don't need to learn and they don't end up learning. Gill caters exactly to that. The teaching is lame, teachers hate their jobs (in all lower, middle and upper schools); it's usually in the last two months that anything of value is taught in the classroom. Some teachers are ex-gill students.. shows how great their education was- it couldn't even get them another job! Teachers are jealous of the kids and it shows. They do everything possible to stay behind state standard curriculums. Kids are mostly left to themselves. Resources are squandered on repeat mailings asking for exorbitant donations or to buy lottery tickets for cheap trinkets that even our dogs could afford. Even with all that wealth, educational standards are practically behind every other public school in the state, if not the nation. Science and math is non-existent, so if you want you kid to apply to dental school or get into a financial math program, this is not the place. They have way too much drama to do anyone any good, except the liberal arts crowd that ends up at Rutgers (if even that) or Raritan Community College (if even that). Everything is catered to pleasing the Prada parents who anyway aren't around most of the time to care what their kids are doing. It used to be a girls' school for theater studies... what would you expect?
You can count on your fingers the number of Gill St. Bernard's graduates that have gone on to (and graduated from) any top-thirty (let alone top-ten) undergraduate colleges or universities in the past two decades. That should tell you a lot about the emphasis Gill places on EDUCATION of the mind. Send your kids to school here and forget about them.
