This school is the most uncaring school we have ever dealt with. Our daughter went from loving school (perfect attendance since Pre-K) to hating it. The stress and tension created enough physical pain she is no longer in school! Communication is non-existant. Emails go unanswered - phone calls as well. I wrote on her interim report in the remarks section - "We are concerned that our daughter is struggling with math. What can we do to help her at home". Received no answer to any of those notes on her interims. One teacher made the entire 6th grade walk the hallway for 20+ minutes because a few students acted up in line. When I asked about this she "explained" she was "teaching" the students how to behave in line. Our daughter (age 11 at the time) was made to carry all of her books for the entire 20+ minutes. She came home with bruises on her arms from the burden. The principal does a lot of glaring and eye rolling when she is asked about specific incidents (like the 20+ minute enforced march). She is condescending and disrespectful, yet expects to be treated respectfully. At this school, rules are more important that the students. We will homeschool next year.

Both of my kids loved Gregg. The teachers & staff are great. Both children were involved in the band and my daughter is in chorus, color guard & theatre club.

I now have my 2nd child at Gregg and we love it. They have great communication and a wonderful staff. My daughter had a problem with another student picking on her and it was immediately taken care of.

I work at Gregg an LOVE it. Unlike what some students have reported, I know that if an incident occurs it is fully investigated. The teachers, principals, and support staff care about the students learning the material and about their well being. My son and daughter have both attended here and both are starting college this year with no problems.

I am very dissatisfied with this school. As a student I know firsthand how bad it is. First of all, I am given the impression that the teachers, with a few exceptions, care only about paychecks. Teachers should care more about the wellbeing of a student, as well as their future. Second of all, I have written several reports on bullying, broken lockers, and stolen books. Nothing has been done for any of these matters. I had already reported my science book stolen, and now they are saying I owe 47 dollars for loosing it. Every time I try to report something, instead of talking to me about it, the shove a witness form in my hand and then they might as well throw it away, because nothing is done. I am especially very angry because I had to miss incentive day because my book was missing, and instead of helping me, they treated my as a suspect for "loosing" my book. I am very unpleased and I doubt I will stay here.

If you want to know how well the school is doing, just read the student reviews about the school. There is terrible grammar and punctuation. There is awful sentence structure and capitalization. These students are almost in high school and can't write a review! My child makes the A honor roll every quarter but I am still concerned about how she will compare with other kids in high school and in college.

I am a happy student here at gregg i love our school activitie i very much disagree with some comments teachers and students report if there will be a fight but kids will be kids so sometimes they will get into a fight at random it's not the teacher's or anybody elses faults for natural instincts. I LOVE my fabulous school.

I believe Gregg is doing an outstanding job. The teachers do care, and are doing their jobs well. The principal has high standards for all. Kudos to her! Wake up parents, it all begins at HOME!!

I'm a student at Gregg middle heading into my 8th grade and final year in middle school in the GATE program. My middle school experience at Gregg has been thrilling! yetdissapointing too!Coming from a student's point of view i find it more informing because we have to actually interact in the school environment. I love that the GATE program offers us too learn at higher level and challenge us, but giving us hours of homework that makes us quit extracurricular activities so we can pass the year isnt making us learn, having so much homework and so many projects made mehave to quit soccer, get a math tudor, and take away from my childhood experience! not to mention some of the teachers dont even want to be there, and its dissapointing because we learn better when our teachers interact with us! besides that my time at Gregg has been Great! =)

My son is in 6th grade gate and we are really happy with the team of teachers. They return emails quickly and seem to really care about the kids. I do feel, however, that they give too much homework. Gifted children don't need more work, they need different work. My son had to quit soccer because he had so much homework. I want him to be well rounded, but he barely gets to play outside...He even has weekend homework. I would also like more school wide functions, such as the school dance they had in September. I think more school functions would promote a more community feel.

I have been dissatisfied with this school. The teachers do not keep in contact with parents. They only e-mail you when the parent e-mails them. No encouragement, no motivation, no after school programs. Kids who have a disabilies the teachers just don't care. No caring teachers, only seem to want a paycheck. If your heart is not in teaching all children, maybe they do not need to be teachers. Teachers are loving, kind and willing to work with children. This school needs a lot of improving from the Principal on down to the teachers

I am very pleased with how involved the Vice Principal and Guidance Counselors are. My son had issues after my husband deployed and his grades began to drop. I contacted the Vice Principal about it how in turn asked the Guidance Counselor to get involved. With their help, my son was able to turn mostly D's and F's at midterm to A/B honor roll by the end of the quarter. And he made it into GATE!!! I am thrilled!
