Gray is a great place to start your little one in school. They offer 1/2 day and full day classes. Full day is tuition based. I have experienced both 1/2 day and full day programs. The front desk gal is caring and quick to learn parents names and faces, along with all the children. Both my boys had a brilliant teacher, Mrs. Stelzig. Each and every one of her students are more then ready for 1st grade. She treats her students with respect and is very nurturing. I can't write enough about this Kindergarten teacher. Do whatever it takes to have your child in her class. You will not be disappointed! She understands that this is your baby's first exposure to school and it should be a positive stepping stone for your child, to prepare them for the future. That learning is fun. Nice small town feel. Good school, great teacher!
The teachers at Gray are awesome! All the other elementary schools in the district have given up Outdoor School and the Central OR trip at part of their curriculum because of the difficulties of organizing and funding these events. Our teachers make it a priority in learning to provide these great opportunities for learning.
