High air pollution, chronically ill children, which must to go to school because of the compulsory attendance; Ineffective communication between parents and teachers resulted in poor academic performance, low self-efficiency, and low motivation. Teachers HAVE a lot to do with their student s motivational level! This school s credo is mass production of low-quality pajama students.

GN is a great school. I went there, my daughter, (now in the middle school) went there and I have a 3rd grader. The PTO is awesome. I do not attend the meetings all the time due to my busy schedule but they keep you very informed with a monthly newsletter. I have never seen them turn any help away. With so many mothers working now a days, they welcome all the help they can get. The teachers are top notch and really care about the students. I love how I can get online and check their grades, lunch money balance, and email the teacher with questions. The principal is a season vet. who is down to earth and the kids love him. You could not ask for a better school, parents, or teachers. Thanks to all of them from one parent to another!

I think GN is a wonderful school. The teachers are top notch. The pricipal is very down to earth and willing to help. I have 2 kids enrolled at the school and have been very please with their progress. The teachers have always been avaiable to answer my questions or concerns and have helped my child who has anxiety make it through the first of every school year. The PTO is great, I have never heard them turn away any parent, they are always asking for help. Parent involvement is the highest of any school in Pittsburg, teachcers welcome any parent. GN is accecpting of any student and welcomes all who walks through their door. I am thankful and very supportive of GN school and staff.

I think this school could be alot better if there were more parent involvement. I would love to help with my kids classes but the teachers say they do not need help because every minute is full. They hire someone to do the copying and if you are not in the click of the PTO your help is not wanted or they make you feel that way. The school is on the 2nd principal in 2 years as well as the 2nd counsler. As I mentioned the PTO is not very welcoming and does not like change or new suggestions especially from a newcomer. This is supposed to be the best Public Elementary in Pittsburg. I hate to see wht the others are like. There is some reason why so many send their kids to the private school in town. I can say the Success For All Reading Program is the best thing about the school as well as the math program. Other than that I would not rate this school very high and if moving to the area do your research and it might be wise to move to the little town north of Pittsburg called Frontenac the schools there are awsome as well as the staff. We are looking in doing just that so are kids can get into that school. they have the same Success for All reading program as well as the math program. But the principal their is great and the PTO is very welcoming and they do not turn parents help away.

George Nettles is in my opinion the best elementary school in Pittsburg. The staff and the students are wonderful. Both of my daughters have gone there. One just went to Middle School. My other is in Fourth grade this year. Wonderful school.
