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!!

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.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


Texas uses Accountability Ratings to indicate the overall performance of each school and district. The ratings are based on TAKS test results, dropout rates for grades 7 and 8 and school completion rates for grades 9 through 12. Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
