My son loves this school he has been to 4 different schools since pre-school due to moving because job relocations. He is progressing at this school. This is his second year here. He is in 2nd grade with a 3rd grade reading level. The teachers goal is to bring him to a 4th grade level by the end of 3rd grade. He has received streight A's for the first quater grading period. And we are working on getting streight 100's as his average is around 97 or 98 and almost all E's
I pulled my daughter from this school after going 2 years and every time I turned around I worried for her safety. It's really changed :( The teachers are great, the students aren't. Not to mention the numerous principle changes.
Gentry Elem. This school has deteriated over the past few years with multiple Principle changes...i am sure there are some good teachers but the bad ones give everyone else a bad name. The teachers have no patience with the kids and the traffic is horrible dropping or picking up your child up/off; plan to get there 30 minutes early in the morning or evening as there is only one small driveway in or out. i would have given this school at least 4 stars in the past but not anymore.
We have 2 kids at Gentry and they both love it. There is a good cultural mix and the staff is terrific. Unfortunately the Principal is leaving this year, but we expect there will be someone of the same quality to fill the position.
Gentry is a great school. The teachers are fantastic. The quality of the academics has improved tremendously since the late 90's. I like the way they operate the point system. Keep up the good work! Demples
