My daughter goes to gentry this will be her second year. I hope this year is better than last year because she had teachers that did not care at all I reached out all the one to the teachers but got no response so I went to the principal who was no help at all my daughter struggle the whole year. I knew it would cause her to fail and that's what happen. This year u will be at the school like I'm a student and if I have problems I'm taking it to the school board office.The ladies in the front office or rude they never smile and try to ignore you when you walk in office . This year I'm not playing with them u hope they are on their A game .

This school is okay at best. The women in the front office are always rude and have bad attitudes. The principles pick favorites and the rules don't apply to them. My daughter has been going to that school since 7th grade and I can't wait for her to get out of it. They have decent teachers but the office staff is just HORRIBLE. In my opinion they should ALL be replaced.

My son is in 8th grade and has attended Genry since 6th grade. It's simply an okay school. In my opinion, the principal (Mr. Gillings) and two assistant principals are ignorant and should be replaced. Mrs.Navajaro told my son in 6th grade that he couldn't get on the bus since he left the cafeteria to buy a candy bar. He missed the bus and she called me at work acting like he was the one who missed it due to horseplay or what not when it was that witch who intentionally made him miss it. Mr. Gillings said he was going to "talk" to her after I gave him a piece of my mind. The teachers are bullies!! Ms. Deakle is a slob of an asst. principal who made my son eat the food he dropped on the floor accidentally. I'm sure she wouldn't make her daughter, who also attends Gentry, eat food from the floor! What a B!! The school website appears to be supportive of the students and that is not the case. The ladies in the front office are debbie downers.....They never smile or seem happy to be there. Hope GCM High School is a lot better when it comes to supporting our kids!!

Just Simply Amazing. This school has the best athletics and academics. Very strict on uniforms and dress code. The best teachers in the district by far. Pre/ap classes are made simple to understand and very active with parents. I definetly recommend the school. 5/5 Stars for me...

Simply okay school. I graduated from here and there were alot of cliches at this school, which occasionally caused a lot of drama even if you weren't even in the 'group'. The education was good and I have no complaints about that.

Simply the best I've seen. High expectations run the school combined with a genuine care for students. It's a goldmine - Do whatever you have to do to get your kids in that school!

My son is in all 6th grade AP classes and they require the parent to be very involved otherwise a new middle school student can get disenchanted with the experience of beginning a new chapter in their life. This school is very strict with the rules and policies they have in place and when they mean ZERO tolerance they really mean it.
