GMS is a fantastic school. Mr. Thomas has a genuine love for the students. We are new the the district, while enrolling he and Mrs. Amos were very helpful and friendly, we have felt comfortable tfrom that point on. Our daughter has adjusted very well and her teachers are great. Teachers are very east to communicate with. My husband and I are natives of NWA and remember hearing great things about Gravette schools, now that we are a part of the district we totally understand why and know the reputation is accurate.

This school is ABSOLUTELY GREAT!! They recently hired a new principal, Mr. Duane Thomas. He is an average principal, however he as definitely made some change that has improved in the learning and management areas. The teachers are the best as well as very nice. You would have to look hard to find a mean teacher. The rest of the staff do their job to the best of their capabilities. This is one of the best schools in this area I've seen!

I am hesitant to rate any school with five stars because that implies there is no room for improvement. However, it is the commitment of the leadership, faculty and staff to constantly improve that has earned that type of rating from me. I have taught at other schools but never in one that analysis s their successes and challenges to make the learning environment the best it can be for the students. As the students change, the school looks for ways that work with the group and with each student. They have a deep concern that each student be ready for high school and the world beyond.

This is a pretty average school. We have excellent bus drivers, teachers are ok. Every school has there pros and cons. This schools weakest point is mostly learning abilities (not necessarily because of the teachers either)The strongest point is probably how friendly everyone is, there is hardly much strife. If any, it would be between teachers and parents rather than teachers and students. ~a friend~:-p
