My child's teacher makes him feel very uncomfortable, she has physically forcefully sat him into his seat. I went to the school and had a meeting with the teacher, the Principal and Assistant Principal. I requested that my childs class be changed due to he no longer wants to come to school. He normally loves school. I was told by the Principal that she will not change his classroom due to there numbers are high. She said that after this meeting we will have to give my child and the teacher time to see if they can better there relationship. Now my son has come home telling me about another physical incident and I feel that asking the Principal and Assistant Principal is a waste of time because they disregard my requestd as a parent. I have researched information to homeschool my child and am looking at my other options. This is not the way I feel a school should be ran. I feel as a parent when you express your opinion it should be at least considered. The Principal stated that she would not change my sons class then left the office. The Assistant Principal seemed to attempt to pacify me.

I am very unhappy with the school and the staff. They are unfriendly and rude. They have inappropriate expectations for the children there, and expect them to function like mindless robots. The office staff will tell parents anything to get them out of the office and out of their way. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone. I also plan to tell everyone I know just how awful our experience has been there. I am withdrawing my child immidiately.

GEA is a wonderful school with excellent teachers! I am a parent and teacher at the school and believe that we have one of the better schools in the area. If I didn't believe in our school and the teachers at our school, then my children would attend. I would recommend any one to come join our family at GEA. Sincerely, Laetitia Sayne 4th Grade teacher and proud parent!

Not a school from the good old days, when they still included fun into the curriculium as a way of learning.. Way too strict on the kids!

After getting regonition by the President for C.R.C.T. scores their heads swelled up! That principal moved to Arizona right after and the one that took his place, takes all the credit. Dont ask her to help solve a problem that involves your child,whether it is due to a bullie,or its one of her teachers who like to yell at your child,,,etc.. She simply doesnt have the time...Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't it about the child? Not at this school!
