Best staff ever!!! Not biggest. Typo. My youngest is in kindergarten and is really excelling. I'm so happy that I have my kids at this school!!! At first I was like nooooo I don't want them there but after seeing that my kids were loving it and really improving, I was like, oh yeah! Lunch room food is great too! Lol.

Excellent academic focus, throughout the school. The Christmas program consisted of the parts of speech incorporated with christmas songs. It was very creative and educational for the students, not to mention, the principal and the entire faculty performed!

My daughter attends Gresham and she is in k5. Her teacher is Ms. Sandifer and I have nothing but the best things to say about her. She's very organized and professional and she has made this entire experience a great one. I am so pleased with this school that I am only moving into a area that my daughter can continue to be educated at Gresham until its time for her to move on..

This school is a hidden gem in the JeffCo school system. My daughter transferred from private school to Gresham for the first grade in 2008 and she is doing great. She loves GES better that her previous school and her first grade teacher, Ms. Johnson, is terrific. GES moved into their permanent facilities this fall and I must say they are equal to what was available in private school.

My child is in kindergarden this year and I must say that he is progressing, but I would like to see more projects and hands on assignments coming home. Ms.Tuck gets a A for her dedication and love for her students.

I am amazed at the strength of academics, when the school is woking in such a sorry facility. To me, the teachers are Amazing! They are able to keep the main thing the main thing in the always changing world! Way To Go GES Teachers. All of my children have done well after the instruction received at GES. Thank you all!

The programs they have come up parents must pay per child and you usually recieve info days or day before deadline which is not enough time unless you just have the extra money like that. Iam a budgeting mom and what I don't like about the school is it's last minute opertunity of programs. And usually both of my childern wants to enter in all programs. Though the programs are there but am usaally not able to let my kids participate because of the slothfulness of the staff.

Am very happy with what the school is doing with our daughter. She comes come from (k) class and raves about the art and music and how the teacher tells her how great she is. the teacher gives daily feedback on her progress/trouble spots and recommends areas of assistance/work. I am thrilled with the school and the teachers, so is my daughter.

My seven year old girl goes to second grade at Gresham Elementary. We love the school despite the conditions of a temporary school structure. We were very reluctant to place our child there, but what a great outcome! From day one at registration the administration was wonderful with a very personable and caring principal. My child's teacher is also wonderful. Our child required extra attention at the beginning of the year to get used to new rules. Her teacher worked with us and our child and turned her into a great student in less than two weeks. She is learning at advanced levels and loves school. Thanks to Everbody who makes it great at Gresham.
