I was a student at gretna 3 1/4 years and none of them were good. If you are not a native, you are disliked. If you don't look or act like they do, you are disliked. People from millard public schools move there, because they are from millard, they are disliked. Most people switch back. Plus, there is not a diversity. There are so little Black, Asian, And hispanic people there you can count, about 15. I switched to Westside and there is a nice diversity, people are way more friendly. Granted you do get a bit of a bad crowd. There is a group for everyone. in gretna the language program is Horrible! in westside people speak multiple languages. So gretna I give a 2 Star rating And westside a 5 star.

I am extremely happy we made the move into the Gretna School district. Gretna is a program that thrives on taking your child to the next level with their education. Small class sizes, high ability learner programs and special education programs all work together to 'Leave no child left behind'. Teachers and administrators focus on getting to know each child and their strengths and weaknesses and develop a well-rounded teen.

Gretna offers an excellent education taught by an experienced staff. We have been involved within the educational program for 11 years and have been extremely satisfied and impressed with the level of teaching. Faculty are personable and caring, strict within the realms of a disciplined classroom executing a high level of achievable standards for all. From staff to faculty to administration, all students are treated fairly and respectfully. This school district is by far superior to any other. As an educator myself, I appreciate and value the education and life lessons my children are exposed to within the Gretna School District. Thanks to all individuals within the Gretna School District who touch and positively guide my children down the road in which they are traveling toward adulthood. There are many more parents who appreciate all your timee and effort dedicated toward the success of our children!
