The teachers are great with the kids. They want the kids to be the best that they can be.

Im currently going into the highschool and i did not like this school at all. The teachers do a poor job and does not teach the same subject long enough for students to understand. Theres too many rules for students to go by. Students should feel like they do at home if not then they need to feel better.

i was a student here this year before summer started and i was suprised how nice the teachers were and how nice Mr. Conn was, but the hallways we always cruded with papers and junk also the classrooms were also the same until teachers started taking action but i was glad i went there because i met new friends and old ones P.S. long live class of 2014

I love the communication. If you have questions every last teacher responds. The principal reacts appropriately to situations. Great school.

I have to disagree with some of the comments that have been posted about the administration of the GCMS. Thus far my experience with the GCMS has been very disheartening. The transition from one of the BEST GC elementary schools to the GCMS was to say the least a hard slap in the face. The Assistant principal is a wolf in sheep s clothing. He would prefer walk around a situation and not assume responsibility for what is actually taking place at that school or his part in what is happening. The principal on the other hand is a wonderful administrator, although he is only one person with no support. This administration needs to step it up a few notches and provide higher expectation to every student, preparing the students educationally for the future.

I Think Mr. Conn is a wonderful principle, he made my son and our family feel very welcome to GCMS. I changed my sons Middle School after the 7th grade. He was failing 3 classes and was almost afraid to go to school. Since becoming a part of the GCMS family he is on the honor roll with a 3.8 GPA. He now loves school and has made many wonderful friends. Granted, he has made changes himself, but I owe so much to the Teachers and Administration. This was the best choice we could have ever made for our sons future, not only in middle school but his entire educational years. Thank You

It has humor. Almost all the staff has a great and uplifting personality, though the students can be a bit... out there, I am glad to be a part of the GCMS family!

This is probably the best run school in Garden City. That's not necessarily great considering how bad some of the schools are. But this school has excellent administrators, counselors and teachers. Accessibility to the staff is extremely high. Whether we email or phone, our concerns are handled quickly and effectively. The Special Ed teachers and consultants are really great, but the Math department is superb.

Im a student at gcms and yeah there are alot of student fights and drama but thats nothing that the school board or any adults can control. oyu can expect that at any school. It is a shame that it is a very poor school but the teachers, Mr.Conn - the assistant principal, and Mr.Sumner - the principal, do a pretty good job at making the 2 most memorable years at gcms for me and every student that goes there a great time.There are some really good teachers there and some great people. Im glad that i am a student there.

I agree that the support from the staff at the middle school is less than adequate. My child attended last year and will not return this year.

I would have to disagree with the comments regarding Mr. Conn. My oldest child's years at the middle school were so awful, that I will not send my other children to that school. I think Mr. Conn was the worst part of the entire experience. It is a shame that we have such a poor middle school when our elementary schools are very good. At the time when most children need extra support, the middle school fails to provide emotional and educational support. Thank heavens for school of choice.

Mr. Larry Conn is the back bone of this school. The students, and parents all know him to be a fair, responsible caring administrator. My grand children are lucky to have him.

The biggest comment I have for the GC Middle School is that it is a good bridge between the GREAT elementary school system and the subpar High School. It seems the faculty spend a great deal of time nurturing the very good students, and very little time trying to motivate poorer students. My 4.0 kids received accolades, but I never heard of my other child's poor grades until the report cards came out.
