Stanford Gibson Primary School
Improving Tomorrow by Learning Today

Approximately 510 students in grades pre-kindergarten through second grade attend Gibson Primary School. There are approximately 40 teachers and 16 support staff who work with your students on a daily basis. Students are taught at their academic and developmental levels. Each child is considered to be unique with different talents, goals, and abilities. Our faculty takes pride in the profound impact the work they do has on the lives of our students.

We provide excellent services to all of our students. In addition to academics, students participate in physical education, music and art classes. Instruction includes technology and library services. For students with varying needs we provide additional reading, speech, occupational therapy, physical therapy and counseling services. Special education settings are available to those students requiring an individual education plan. 

Our school has a safe and friendly atmosphere. We encourage parent and community involvement. If you would like to volunteer or attend school events please either call or visit our Welcome Desk at the school. Your support is appreciated.

Snack Milk
At Gibson Primary we ensure that every student has a healthy, calcium filled snack of milk each day. Many individuals, as well as numerous school and community organizations and foundations help to make this possible through their generous donations. If you’re interested in lending a helping hand, please call the Gibson Primary School office at 334-1600, ext 4251 for more details!
