This school is bad don't let any other review tell you other wise. I was a student there for one year and halfway through the year i already wanted to leave the place. These reviews need to be centered on the student's thoughts not a parents or a staff 's.Most of the students here are very irresponsible and care more about being cool,hanging out with there friends, and drama instead of doing any kind of work.Most students don't even pay attention to the teachers. The things the kinds say to each other are horrible. A student can not go any were in the school without hearing some bad language or hurtful comments to them or another student. The teachers are professional in what they do. There are some that stick out like a sore thumb that almost seem like they don't know what there doing and messed up constantly. One teacher punished my entire class for something a few people did, another after school for almost 4 minutes and i almost missed my bus and i didn't do anything! The sports programs are something i didn't join, but i know were good due to my classmate's thoughts about them. After-school programs i have no idea about. I hope everyone at this school reads this.My Initial CV

I think Gray Middle School is great. Teachers throughout Tacoma only view Gray by what they see. I walk through the hallways everyday. Most students get along with other. No matter your race or whatever it is. There seems to be a lot of fights between females because of silly reasons, but that don't mean a thing. Students all over Tacoma are like that. But, academically Gray is fantastic. Every year our test scores are going up. The programs at our school are highly rated. Overall, this is my last year at Gray and I'm happy i got to attend there for three years. =]

I feel they could challenge the children more academically and have more electives. I also feel they should have more family/parent involvement and programs.

I went to Gray and was actively involved. I loved it there! The teachers and staff were very supportive and definitely dedicated to their work. They were always there if you needed help on homework or had bigger troubles. The atmosphere in classrooms and on campus was charged and exciting. There may have been fights, but that's just a small percent of students. Of course, no school is perfect, and Gray's no exception. However, it's a great place to be. There was always after school help available and sporting events to attend. Gray was also the first middle school in Tacoma to have a cheerleading squad. My friends and I still reminisce and wish we could spend just one more day at Gray.

This school is great. Gray gets looked down upon because it has a not-so-great building and a high fight level, but people fail to see the good parts of our school. First, it's not the building that makes the school, it's the people, and this school has amazing people, from excellent loving teachers, to students that make things happen. And secondly, we may have fights, but who doesn't? All people focus on the fights, and but they fail to recognize all the good things that happen, like our excellent science, fair, our dedicated ASB, or our wonderful sports teams. So next time you want to look down upon us, think again.

This school is great...it has many activites such as IMP math ( a higher math level program ) and esl for students not fluent in english. They also have programs that bring the students into the environment such as TATU ( teens against tabbacoo use and SAD ( students against drugs). Thses programs are used to teach the younger kids in our district about the importance of anti-drugs. I highly recommend any child to become a part of the Pilot Pride system. Our pilots take pride in our school to make sure we are reconized as the amazing school we are. Our teachers know the students and work hard to work with the students in any struggles they come accross. This school may not look, smell, or have a good reputation but once you become a pilot you'll never want to leave. Believe me when I say once a pilot always a pilot!
