Gilbert’s 2014 was filled with a mix of progress and tumult among its governing entities. Its main school district continued to earn high marks but still went through a contentious year, while the town government itself currently faces a suit in the U.S. Supreme Court.
As the end of 2014 draws near, I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your support of our students, teachers and programs. We continue to grow in number and our academic success is soaring as noted by our ranking as the No. 1 large public school district in Arizona. Thank you to our students, staff, parents and community for making this a reality.

One of the most common questions that I get asked from a new student is: “What’s the quickest way I can improve my scores?” What people don’t realize is that 70 percent of the shots that are hit on the golf course are from inside 100 yards. Short game is the one area of golf that most golfers neglect to practice. If you were to focus more attention on your putting, you’ll definitely see an improvement in your scores. But putting doesn’t have to be limited to just on the green. Have you ever thought about using a putter when you are off the green in a chipping situation? It is probably the only shot in golf that isn’t played enough. Many players reach for a lofted club anywhere near the green. But if you think putting from off the green is a shot only played by beginners, you’re making a big mistake. The beauty of putting from off the green is that it’s very straightforward. There’s no need to play a delicate chip with a wedge — a shot that can so easily go wrong, particularly if your confidence isn’t sky high.
