This is a wonderful school and gives your child each and every oppurtunity at a wonderful education. They go the extra mile for your child. The principal is a wonderful person.
Gorenflo supports children with learning and attention difficulties by having Inclusion teachers who are consistently within the K-5 classrooms. These teachers are there to support not only students already in Special Education but also the students in General Education. All students struggle in school, the only difference is some students need a little extra attention whether it be consistently cuing the student to stay on task or providing other students with one on one instruction and remediation. Gorenflo also supports children with learning & attention issues by using engaging material. We have Promethean Boards in every classroom that are used to teach each lesson whether it be through video, active participation, and even GIZMOs. We use a variety of different methods that keep us from using the plain jane worksheets that the majority of teachers and parents used when they were in school. We also have a great Positive Behavioral Intervention and Support system in place using a Clip Chart. As students clip up, rewards become possible, including a movie matinee at the end of the week. As they clip down, consequences go into effect, including parent phone calls or write-ups.
My children were transferred from Lopez to Gorenflo. Because of all the 'hype' I was scared to death to send my children there. Well almost two years later I am so pleased with the quality of their education and the leadership. Awesome school with awesome principal, couselors, secretaries and nursing staff.
I love Gorenflo because of the spirit of the community it represents.Gorenflo was newly renovated just before Katrina hit the area and wrecked the beautiful new school.But like the community it is in, Gorenflo school cannot be kept down.It's back better than ever.
