My kids enjoy going to school. The school offers classes like music art pe libary which breaks up the day for the kids and keeps them excited. The math-science is taught with lots of games that engage. My son received individual reading help, is up to his grade standards now. Overall a great school for the kids with lots of resources. The school pushes the kids, expects alot - but in the right way. Parents are really involved. Bullying could be handled in a better way, my son was told he could not play with a few boys. He was then told he had to give more compliments and use I statements ? Another mom had the same issue and her daughter was told the same thing - her daughter had to compliment and use I words when she was getting teased ?
Great teachers. Involved Principal. PTO is well organized. There is a feeling that the parents really care about their kids education.
Great School. The Principal is wonderful, caring and understanding. Our son is now in 2nd grade, and so far his teachers have been outstanding. The entire school staff from the Librarian, the office staff, the PE teacher, the school bus driver and the janitor are all awesome. Great job!!!
The principal is personable and easy to talk to (in certain cases when needed). Bullying is handled in a timely and effective way. My DD needed a little extra help in math and received just that. The PTO is a great group of women who have done alot for the school in the 2 short years of its opening. There are some excellent teachers and then below average as in every school. GRE has some great events through the year for the children and families as well. It offers a small amount of extracurricular events. My main issue with GRE is the tick problem at recess. I wish they would do something about it.
The staff is very friendly. The teacheres learn and know all of the students by first name very quickly. This school has an excellent program in place for reading intervention. Extreamly safe and clean.
