Great school. great teachers, great leadership, great parent involvement. My only concern was the level of communication. Sometimes information was not conveyed clearly and concisely. As a first-time parent at this school, I often had to seek out information that really should have been more clearly/readily available. I think this could be attributed to folks simply assuming parents know what they are doing when they enroll their young one. I didn't.

Gretna No. 2 Academy for Advanced Studies is an amazing and challenging school for children from Pre-k4 to 5th grade. It's a five stars and a Blue Ribbon school. Dads and Moms work together with the wonderful teachers and the principal to help children success.

I was very disappointed with this school. It did not live up to the reputation it has. I think people like this school because some affluent families send their children there. The principal is extremely unprofessional.

Gretna #2 Academy is a God sent to my child and our whloe family. We have enjoyed the 2 years that we have been with Gretna. They offer so much exposure that we may not be able to introduce our kids to due to being working parents. Thank you to the entire staff!!!

I think the review posted on July 5,2007 is wrong. This school changed my daughter's grades to 100% A. If you want your child to suceed you should encourgage him every day so he could feel nurished and loved and tell him school is great.

It is everything a school should be. And, being that it is a public school, it proves that public schools can succeed given good leadership.

My son has been at this school since it opened. He loves it and so do we. I've seen only two negative reviews. Mrs. Wilty and teachers go out of their way to commnicate with students and parents if there is a problem. I can say this from my dealings with any problems we have had. SCHOOL GETS AN A+

When my daughter was accepted into the school, I was thrilled. With high expectations of the school, which has not lived up to my expectations. I feel as if you are not in the 'clique', some of the teachers treat you different. Some of the teachers are extremely sarcastic, and in some instances I feel as if it was inappropriate. They also can be unempathetic to the students such as telling them to shut up, etc........The teachers seem to feel as if the students are bad. They have no idea of the wonderful students they do teach and the great opportunity they have been given to teach at this magnet school.

Both of my children are in their second year at Gretna #2 Academy and love it. They are excited about what they are learning because the lessons are well presented and have projects/activities to help make them interesting. I like the fact that the students are taught how to problem solve in lieu of memorize. As a plus to the academic advantages, the faculty and parent organizations are both strong, creating a family like community for all. I would highly recommend this school to anyone.

I absolutely love Gretna #2. My child is being challenged and given assignments that inspire my son to think out of the box. Everyone at the school is like a close knit family and involved in school activities. It is nice having a school where my child can be surrounded by peers on his academic level and parents and teacher who really care about the students.

Our daughter started Gretna No.2 last year in 4th grade. It was the best move we made for her. She hated school before attending Gretna and now she loves school and could not wait for the summer to be over. Teachers and Principal have been excellent.Gretna Gators are the best.

We love Gretna Academy. Our children are thriving. The project based learning is not fo reveyone and it requires self-motivation on the part of the students - but for our children it is a perfect fit! We love the faculty and staff, the challenging curriculum and the aprent involvemnet. It is truly a top notch school!

Gretna No. 2 opened its doors to my child last year for 1st grade and the goals are limitless. We are so excited about 2nd grade and all that it has in store for us. I can personally say that I attended and was involved in everything possible the school had to offer and I actually feel as though this school is where our public schools were when I was in school 25-30 years ago. The students are the heart of the school and the parents stand side by side with their children watching them attain every goal possible. This school is everything we dreamed of. And that's just the first year. We are so blessed for the principal and teachers who made this school a possibility. Go Gretna No. 2.

Gretna #2 is a fabulous school. My daughter traditionally loved school until we moved to LA, we put her in a charter school that was highly recommended and she started hating school and cried almost daily. The next school year we put her in Gretna#2 and she loves school again. We are so happy that it opened and it is a fabulous place to learn. The entire staff & faculty are wonderful, they care about the kids and making sure the make the most of their education. HURRAY for Gretna #2 GO GATORS!!!!!

My husband and I were very excited for our son to attend this school. Within days of him starting school, we realized this school wasn't meeting our expectations. The principal has her agenda and if your child doesn't fit the profile right away, she is ready to write your child off. They were not nurturing, made my child hate school, and made us feel as though our child was stupid. We pulled him out, and he is doing wonderful at his new school. The new school worked with us and worked with our child.

Gretna No. 2 Academy opened its doors in the fall of 2006. It has been a fabulous year for our students and parents. You're on the RIGHT TRACK! GO GATORS
