Whoever wrote the post in 2007 needs to simma down. Im surprised you even chose to stay at a school that you insulted. GLA has a bad a rep and yes, has made amazing strides to become one of the most respectd schools in the district. This is due to an established culture made by teachers and new directors. Thank you all for staying, and getting rid of RIch Sinclair.
MY DAUGHTER HAS FONE TO GLA SINCE SHE WAS IN KINDGARDEN.. AND I LOVE GLA I DO FEEL THAT THERE IS A LITTLE BIT OF BULLING GOING ON FROM OTHERE STUDENTS AS WELL HAS SOME OF THE TEACHERS """ MS S **** BUT ONCE ADDRESS WITH THE PROPER STAFF IS WAS TAKEN CARE OF I GV GLA OVER ALL4 ARS .. IM SO EXCITED FOR MY OTHER CHILDEREN TO BE STARTING THERE..
I think that this school is growing every year. GLA has had a lot of changes, but I can honestly say every year the academic rigor, community, student behavior and success stoires grow. It is an exciting school to be apart of, and the teacher have close realtionships with their students. There are under 500 students for the whole school, K-12th which adds a real sense of family.
The school is pretty bad! The lunches are not that good, most of the students say everything in that school is cheap! The teachers are also ok...but some are bad! Its true the school is cheap i agree with the students. There is alot of bulling foresure. All u can say is...the school is cheap.
It will soon be Fall, 2011 and A LOT has changed since 12/2007 so don't be turned off by the old post below or past years of bad reputation. GLA is a great small school where every student is known by teachers, staff and administration. Students do not fall through the cracks because there are such great relationships being made by teachers who care a lot. Staff work hard to meet the needs of every student. I have personally experienced several students leaving for other schools (for whatever reason) and returning to GLA for the unique and supporting community.
This is possibly the worst school in the state! The students are totally out of control. There is no discipline from either the teachers or administration. I have been working in education for 14 years, and have never seen such a poorly run school. There have been 8 principals in 3 years, and a revolving door of teachers everyday.
