I have two children in the district. I couldn't be more pleased with the staff. I feel they are excellent at recognizing needs and teaching to the level the student requires (this is particularly important to parents of bright children who wish to see their student utilize all of their learning potential). I have nothing but praise for the school.

I moved a lot when I was a child, so I have a first hand look at many different school types. We moved to Gentry when I was in the 6th grade & I have to say it was the best school I attended. The people at Gentry are very caring & they make you feel at home. I now have two of my own children attending Gentry Primary school & a third that will start next year, there isn't any other school that I would even consider taking my children to.

I am very happy with the school as the test scores prove that the teachers do care and are teaching. Not only that my kids are treated well, I feel they are safe, and are taught how to be a good people. I have had 2 kids here and have always been kept informed of all goings on in the school and with my children.

I am very disappointd in this school system. It has went downhill since, My 14 yr old started Kindergarten,He has been recently tranfered to another school,The teachers in this school don't care about how the children learn and send home way too much homework. They are more concerned about the looks of the school over the students. They just don't care anymore about education.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
