We moved here 6 months ago and hate it! This school treats these kids like they are in boot camp! the last two parents have said it all.
I have to agree with the other parent. I have had 2 kids go through this school, and one was verbally abused daily by teachers. The vice principal is very unprofessional and acts like a child not a professional and the principal is not much better. This is the worst school I have ever seen or been involved with.
I have had 2 children attend G-P Intermediate school. One is in 5th grade this year. I have also had kids at W.C. Andrews Elem., G-P Jr. High and High Schools. I have never been treated disrespectfully or rudely at any of the schools..........except the Intermediate. The Principal is the rudest, most disrespectful woman I have ever met. The Vice Principal is only marginally better. They not only treat the parents badly, they also treat the students like they are all criminals in the making. My family loves this school district with the exception of the Intermediate school. I think the superintendant of schools, Dr. Paul Clore, needs to intervene at this school and take these power hungry women out of their positions and replace them with staff equal to the quality at the other district schools.
GP Intermediate School is an exceptional school with excellent teachers who offer great teaching to their students.
My daughter attended G-P Intermediate. Neither my daughter or myself had any complaints about the school, good teachers, good support. There was only one teacher/staff memeber who could be seen in the lunch room and sometimes helping direct traffic outside. I had seen her behave very rudely several times, yelling at kids and at parents. My daughter complained about her behavior several times to me also. She really stood out because none of the other staff behaved in that manner. Luckily, this was only a small part or reflection on the school. I would therefore recommend G-P Intermediate as being a good quality school, probably one of the best in San Patricio County.
Portland is a wonderful place to live and to raise children. GPISD has an excellent school district, however, the parent/child support at GP Intermediate isn't at its best. When a person takes on the responsibility of overseeing an entire school, that said person should act accordingly and have respect for both the child and parent(s)....I have not seen this behavior take place from the one in charge at this school. Hopefully something will be done about this for future parents and children at this school.
