My kids love this school, are well behaved and are at or above their grade level in all subjects. In fact the schools must be doing something right as they are above state average in all subjects. My expectation is that teachers are there to teach and I think they are doing a great job. I am not sure why some of the other reviewers are so certain only teachers or parents who do not care about the emotional welafre of their kids. As I am not a teacher and I am VERY concerned about all aspects of my kids and their education, I find these remarks insulting and totally inaccurate.

I am pretty sure that the "parents" that are making these special comments about how wonderful this school is, either dont care much about their childrens emotional welfare, or they are really teachers who are making these comments to spruce up their own school. If you send your children to this school be aware of the bullying that goes on by the teachers themselves. Be careful about the students because a lot of the parents dont care how they raise their own children (I agree with the remarks about the undisciplined behavior), and be very careful about talking to the principle when your child is being bullied by the teachers because they look at you like you are an emotional parent rather than dealing with the issue.

I love this school as my kids are getting an excellent education and are turning into wonderful young adults. I totally disagree with the reviewers who state they need more disciplined (certainly this should primarily come from home) as of course some kids act up, but that behavior is dealt with quickly. My kids are emotionally stable, high achievers, love learning, look forward to going to school, and have a great set of friends.

Our kids are progressing at an amzing rate at this school. We love the teachers and they seem to care about every child. There is a detailed behavior plan to deal with kids who bully or misbehave and we are confident that bad beahivor is dealt with to the best of their ability. We would not hesitate to recommend Governors Ranch!

This school needs to discipline their students more. They were rude, obnoxious and often violent at a public event. Small children under the age of 10 were already making sexual jokes, using intense profanity and making aggressive contact towards another student. Very very very ill disciplined. Please teach your kids the basics of common sense before anything else. Thank you.

If anyone is reviewing this school with pride its because either they are a teacher that works there or they really do not pay attention to their childs emotional needs. Its a terrible school. The teachers yell at the children and they do not listen to the parents needs when it comes to their educational needs. I ended up homeschooling the remaning of the year due to the many issues that I had there. I would not recommend this school to anyone.

Gov Ranch Elem cares about the students and their education. The staff is outstanding. I would highly recommend this school to anyone.

We left GRE after 4 principals, poor and inconsistent teaching staff, and unchallenging curriculum. There are approximately 25 families in our neighborhood that send our kids to Dennison Elementary School instead of our neighbohood school. This is reflected in the schools mediocre test scores.

Governor's Ranch is an excellent school that strives to meet the needs of all students! Bullying is absolutely not tolerated and teachers are very receptive and responsive to the needs and concerns of students and parents. The academics are rigorous and yet learning is made to be fun. The staff believes in the whole child, art, music, and PE are just as important as reading, writing, and math. Teachers take the time to get to know their students and to support their interests and activities. We love this school!

We left this school because of the inconsistent quality of the teachers and the lack of leadership. Bullying is rampant here and not much is done about it. Everyone knows about it and it is swept under the rug. They do have an active PTA and a supportive community.

Are Family Loves Governors Ranch Elem. Because they have the Best Teachers and Staff anyone could ask for. And not to mention have a great PTA that looks out for are schools needs in all ways. Without these great people showing are kiddos the way the school wouldn't be as great as it is. They really do think of Safety and education first. Love all the Programs they have and esp. all there events that keep the community tightly together.You will def. see that GRE is the place to be : )

Principals in Jefferson County are reviewed on overall GPA and standardized test grades. Rather than working on getting the kids to improve grades, it's much easier get rid of the students that have challenges. Good students will be fine, students with issues or challenges will have problems. 'Programs' are offered by the district and sound great, but fail to deliver promised results.

This school is geared towards 'typical' children who never get into trouble. If your child has special needs or learning delays or disabilities, this is not the school for them. The atmosphere is very snotty and cliquey. Thank goodness for open enrollment.

This school not only has an outstanding academic environment, it has excellent - friendly and open parent involvement. This is such a welcoming and friendly school, and there is a strong emphasis on consideration and respect! Needless to say we are so glad that we chose this school for our son's elementary education. A large percentage of families are open enrolled by choice in this school which highlights its strengths. The principal is tremendously supportive of the staff and parent involvement. What more can we say! Signed, a statisfied parent at GRE!
