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

This is the most amazing school that my children have attended. The teachers are caring and very attentive. I have a child with ADHD and dyslexia and these teacher have gone above and beyond the call of duty. The principal is wonderful and very attentive to any concerns that you may have as a parent. I would recommend it over and over and over. Wonderful school for anyone that has a child with special needs or a high quality education.
