I was once a student at Gresham School. My years there was disastrous. Too many fights and arguements. The teachers and Staffs were quite malignant toward the students. Most importantly, no parent involment what so ever.

This is a great school. It's full caring teachers and very involved parents. I was a student as well as an employee.

I once attended Gresham. I have 4 children that attend this school. All my children are doing wonderful. My daughter's scores are of the charts. I was blessed that my children have had great teachers. There are some very good teachers. The school has a new principal name Dr. Brown. The school is in worst condition then it was a year ago. At least when Mr. Bridges was there, it was more control. I can't wait to get my children out of there.

This school is going through a change and I'm not sure it's for the best. The administration and the faculty can't seem to get along and don't really care about the students. There are many displaced and needy children at this school, but Gresham has many wonderful and bright students also. I think those students are forgotten about in the power struggle going on there now. The system has not made it an easy task with this no child left behind. Children and families wanting to leave have no other choice but to stay in the mess.
