My kids have had amazing teachers every year that care so much about each and every student! My kids are thriving academically. The community and parent involvement along with an outstanding principal make this school a wonderful place!

We love our school! Gregory, its staff, its students, and its families all rock! Very involved PTA and a great community feel.

If you fall in the minority community, stay away and buy your house elsewhere. Lots of favoritism in the arts and music dept.

Gregory School has always been a very important part of the neighborhood and continues to be a reason to move into the area. The teachers care about their students and the community in general is involved with the school. Children receive a good basic education with many enrichment activities. There are art, music,library and gym classes all in the regular weekly schedule as well as a foreign language component. In addition there are many excellent educational resources available at the school. My only compliant with education in West Orange in general is that not enough has been done for the high achieving students until they reach the High School where there are many available AP and Honors courses.

Being an older building this complex doesn't allow for a much needed auditorium but they do well with what they have. I believe the teachers are involved which is as it should be; but the before/after care program offered at this location is subpar at best. Not enough organization. As for the school, I think it meets standards. Neither terrible nor wonderful. I would say average.

As a former Gregory School parent and a piano teacher of current students I can see how the children are learning and I am also impressed by the class sizes-5th grade-17 and 18 8n a class!

At the present time, I am of the opinion that the writing assignments for the students should be more comprehensive. The art, music and sport programs are readily available and there are enrichment programs on-site for a nominal fee. The PTA is extremely active, but I don't see alot of discussion regarding academics. They focus more on family activities. I would like to see more focus on academics which hopefully will enable the test scores to increase in all areas.
