Kids are very happy at Potter Gray. Academics are excellent, leadership has great values and is compassionate. There are some of the best teachers in the city here. Could use a little more diversity.
Wonderful cannot come close to this school.The involvement from staff,parents and students is second to none! This school is probably the closest public school that feels priviye we've come across!
My children came to Potter Gray and were immediately welcomed with open arms. They were challenged to reach their full academic potential, for which they have excelled beyond my expectations. The teachers are dedicated and go way above and beyond the call of duty to help each child. It is such a positive happy school where parents are welcome to participate as much as they can. Their administration is truly remarkable at leadership, encouragement and having fun while striving to have each child do their very best. I've loved having Potter Gray be a part of my children's happy memories and a solid foundation in achievement, not only in academics, but also many other extra programs such as BRIDGES, music and art.
We were new to the area and didn't know anything about the schools before my daughter started Kindergarten. It has been an amazing school year! The leadership of the principal is outstanding and the teachers are very eager to maintain a fun learning environment while using an excellent curriculum! I have worked with many schools over the past 12 years and this is by far the best I have seen!
Best school ever. My family has experienced many schools as students, parents, and educators in several states. This school is the best we've ever been involved with and we love the expectations for academics and behavior that is required of our own children as well as everyone else. Teachers, students, parents, and the administration are the absolute best!
As a parent of two children who attend this school, I couldn't agree more with the glowing parental commentary. I'm very surprised that the Principal leadership at this point, reflects only 4 out of 5 stars. I believe this area is probably the strongest of all - next to parental involvement. 5 stars all the way around from this very impressed and grateful parent.
Potter Gray is a great school!!! The teachers are very caring and hands on regardless of the situation. Parent participation is high. Kids love to attend school because teacher make it fun to learn.

Potter Gray has amazing students, faculty and parents!!!! I am very honored and proud to be a part of this school!
Potter Gray has received numberous awards over the years for being a leader in the Kentucky Educational system. We were just named a Blue Ribbon School, one of only 6 in Kentucky, by the the U.S. Government. Not only are teachers exceptional, but we have the best parental support anyone could ask for. They are always there to reaise extra money, or to help in any way they can.
It's a National Blue Ribbon school and has the best teachers and students in the country.
The academics are great. The bad part is if you do nlot have money you do not matter to this school. They are snobs and it is unfair how they treat certain families.
This is one of the best schools that my children has ever attended. The teachers are helpful, the kids love them!
We love this school and both of the teachers our Austin has had, Miss Dwyer and Mrs.Curtis. A wonderfulful school inside and out.
Potter Gray students routinely lead the BG City schools in achievement. Recent test scores place PG in the number 1 spot again! I am so happy with the education my sons have received from Potter Gray. Now that my oldest son is at the Jr. High, it is evident that the hard work he did through the 5th grade has prepared him to excell there as well.
What good can we not say about potter-gray. It is the teachers that have made this school great. I hate to see my child leave and go to the jr. High with kids that come from schools who teachers didn't care like ours. Mrs. Cole is the best, our kids have learned so much, she puts in so much overtime compared to some of the teachers in the kindergarden, and ist grades that mrs. Cole, mrs. Vaulk, mrs. Reynolds, mrs. Babik, mrs. Vanmeter, mrs. Clark, mrs. House, mrs. Hughes, mrs. Kitchens, mrs. Wright, have all done and gone beyond the call of just teaching. I do fear for our kids now that they are leaving potter gray. That they won't get what they were getting from those teachers. Potter gray does seem to be the best public elementry school in bowling green.
I can't express how wonderful this school is. When I moved my child from Briarwood to Potter Gray, it was like night and day. My child started to love school, her teacher, and the pricipal. I always feel welcome when I enter the school, and I'm always kept involved. The school always has fun activities that make my child look forward to the next day of school. I always tell everyone that Potter Gray is by far the best school in town.
