Don't even think of sending your child to this awful school. They must wear uniforms while staff wear everyday clothes, and showoff at times. Not to mention the smart attitudes they have. They say we must follow the rules and set an example, speak for themselves!! I, a student, is currently stuck with lower minded students with no manners. While some students are in advanced classes and are failing, so how is this fair or correct at all? We even try to help the school at times, yet they just shrug us off and punish us. The school is full of insolence!

GMS is a wonderful school! I echo the previous parents comments, but would add that administration and teachers make this school so great. Teachers go above and beyond to communicate with the parents on their childs progress, or lack of, and are more than willing to help any student that wants help. Administration is always available for parents. Parents need to become more active in their childs education and extra-curricular activities. I rate this school a 5.

The Principal and Assistant Principles at the GMS are the greatest. They care about there students. The teachers are very over qualified to teach our students. I rate the school a 5.
