Both of my children are in this district, with my oldest in High School. I have been extremely pleased with the quality of education that is available to students at Gentry. As with any school system, involvement from parents and dedication of students is key as to whether they leave the system feeling that it has done all it could for them. My students are dedicated and driven and have almost always found the staff to be receptive of their desire to learn. I feel that the instructors and administration have consistently risen to the challenge of providing education at the level to which the student requires (including bright and intelligent children). I have only the highest praise for the school.

Fair academic program. Do seem to have real interest for improvement. Extracurricular activities need better leadership and discipline. Fair parent involvement.

IEDUCATION does not seem to be their 1st PRIORITY! My kids have so much potential and the school just brings down their ability to learn. How can anyone graduate and feel that they've done their best! When there is no perseverence or leadership in the school it self! I would love to see this school strive amongst other high school and prove to everyone and their self that they are #1!
