I graduated from Gentry High in 2008. While I was there, I made up my mind that I was going to put my all into my education.People stop complaining about your short comings. I graduated with honors, and had a FULL scholarship to attend Southern Ms. However, Gentry taught me to be the best that I can be. Also I believed in our motto, if Better is possible, then good is not enough. Instead I joined the Air Force. So now I have my scholarship, and plus free tution. So until you implie yourself, dont knock Gentry.

I have been affiliated with this school for several years. I have found Gentry High to be a place where most children do not care about their education; parents do not attend PTA meetings; most teachers can care less about educating students. The list goes on and on. Our school is now in conservorship. I think the conservator does not care much. The school is in dire need of repair (50+ years old) the school floods when it rains. Righ now our school is awful from the top to the bottom.

I am a 10th grade student and I feel Gentry is a good school and I feel that if we all tried we will be a better school! All school has problems, no school is perfect. It's not the staff, its the school children who needs home training and needs to be discipline.

Im a 10th grade student, and I feel that gentry high school is not as good of a school as it needs to be. I feel that the teachers(some) really dont care about us as students. In some of my classes I feel as if I am not learning anything and I would like to be challenged more and taken more seriously.Gentry also needs to have many repairs. The fact that it rains on the students and the roofs are caving in is a danger to the students and staff. Futhermore, I feel that the school needs a major make over. The district needs to stop and look at the problems that are being caused at gentry high school.

I am a tenth-grader at Gentry and I must say that I am very dissapointed about attending this school. There is no type of discipline and people seem as if they do not care. There is way to much negativity in this school enviorment. I was so ready to get to this school and now that I am here it is no were near as great as I thought it would be. This does not even feel like a high school to me. I just do not know what to say about this school.

Say what you please, students are students no matter where you go. I believe that the staff at Gentry High School really care and believe in their students. Their goal is to put them in the best position possible to be successful, and its up to the students to do their part. I am a 2008 graduate of GHS and I will be attending Howard University In the fall, I am also in the Navy and I have a job making an above average income for my age. None of these things would be possible without the teachers, staff, and my peers at GHS. The lessons I learned there are ones that I will always take with me wherever I go.

I graduated from Gentry in 2004. Although the falculty and staff tried their best to provide me with all the tools of success that a student needs, i feel that i was cheated. All students are taught at a medium level, and higher achievers gain nothing during this process.

I am now going into my third year at Gently. It feels good to go to a school where I feel the teachers are intact with my needs and the need of other students. The teachers and Mr. Kirksey are doing a wonderful job of keeping things on track. Many doors will now start to be open to me since this is my senior year, and I know that because Gentry High School is making it possible. The academic programs are great because they give you a chance to learn in the class rooms and out. There are many activities going on at school like band, drill team, football, baseball, volleyball, basketball, softball, library club, yearbook, dance groups, chess team, academic decathlon, national honor society, and many more that students should join. Each and everyday Gentry is always 'A Cut Above The Rest!'

I graduated from Gentry in 2006. While attending 'The Big 'G'', I learned many things. The teachers have a way to make sure that all of their students learn and have the right understanding of the subject. Other than academics, Gentry has a very good athletic department. The principle was Mr. McIntosh. he was the best principle I ever had!! He always made time for his students even if he were busy, if a student had a problem, he would always take time to talk to that student personally. Crystal Thomas

I love Gentry High School which is the best school in MS. We are always trying to live up to the school's motto, 'If better is possible then good is not enough.' Gentry has wonderful techers that have the goal of wanting what is best for their students. Gentry has wonderful programs academically, that will challenge the students and prepare them for college courses as well as their futures. Gentry is a home away from home for many students. As a graduating senior (class of 2006), Gentry has helped me to get to the point where I am in my life. I thank Gentry, the teachers,the counselors, the students, the staff and the prinicpal Mr. McIntosh for the loving support and concern of our futures. I wish Gentry and its future the best.

Well I am currently a senior of the class of 06 and I have really enjoyed Gentry High School since I've been there. Mr Mac does new things each year and they are all exciting. Mr. Mac if you see this, thank you for everything. Our school is different from every school in the delta and thats what I like. I don't know one school that goes out and buys bags for the whole school. He cares alot. Thanks -Crystal Holliness

If you are looking for the best school in the Mississippi delta look no further than Gentry High. Everything from the teachers to the students is top notch. I feel very blessed to be attenting a school like Gentry. I'm now in my senior year of high school and I will miss Gentry alot. Our principal Mr.Mac is great person. he makes the school feels so safe. I don't have to worry about a crazy student shooting up the school because Mr.mac would get rid of that type of person. thanks for everything big guy. Kendall t.

The three years that I served at Gentry were all so great. I really enjoyed my 11th grade year. Now, that I am a senior(05)I am really excited.Gentry is the best, there's no other way to put it. We have a wide variety of athletics and programs that any student can particiapate in. From Tennis to football. The students and teachers are very friendly and down to earth. Our Principal is a very strong willed person and believes in doing everything in his power to make Gentry the best school possible.Thanks Big Guy.

Attending Gentry High School has been the best experience of my life. This school will put your child in the best position possible to achieve. It is almost impossible for your child to be left behind at G.H.S. For example while attending the school your child has an option to attend remediation to get help with any work they do not understand. This program is held before school, after school, and sometimes during school depending on the activites. The only thing your child is asked to do is try to succeed. However, there will be some distractions, but there is never a time when your child does not have the choice to learn. The athletes are perfect. They work extremely hard as well. There's nothing left to say except Gentry is the best when it comes to learning & fun .. Thanx to Mr. MacIntosh and Dr.Polk!! You're the best!

Gentry High School is one of the best schools in Mississippi. They have very good curriculum. They also have very good athletic skills. This school os what I would recommend to anyone who is willing to try this out. This is always and wil always be one of my most favorite schools because well of course I am going to this school. This school is the school for me and I wouldn't have it any other way! It has all kinds of activities and all kinds of things that the children can do while they are attending. They also are able to get all of their work out very easily. I don't care what you say, no school in mississippi can beat the Gentry rams, Their English is also good. My child learned the words I couldn't even spell like Supercalifradulisticespialidosis. I don't know what it means but im thankful.
