    "Gray is a great neighborhood school. The education you get here is top rate. Most of the teachers are amazing. The achievements my kids make every year is astounding. The curriculum is challenging but the teachers make it fun. If you want to learn more about the school before you enroll your child I would recommend going to a No Child Left Behind meeting or a LSC meeting, or visit the school to request a tour. There is virtually no bullying problem. The kids are taught from kindergarten to respect each other. I am there every day, I see happy faces going in and out of the school. The school is very active in getting grant money. Mostly used in new education technologies. There is a support staff that will pull out kids from regular class who are having trouble to work in small groups. The school has two new playgrounds, which is a great way to get to know the other parents while kids play. The administration is very firm. But that is mostly good thing. It is a neighborhood school, so they have to take in everyone in the neighborhood even some troubled families. That being said the school creates a well disciplined and safe environment. And the friends will be from the community."

    "Very few caring teachers. The office staff have no people skills and horrible attitudes. Education wide its not the best. The school has no Kindergarten graduation, what a disappointment. I pulled daughter out ASAP. Parents are not involved enough."

    "This school is horrible. Some teachers are good, but the administration is horrible. Teachers and other staff members are terrified of the principal and this has an impact on the children, especially the little ones. If you have an option, do not send your children to Gray school."

    "Im a student at Gray and I think is a really good school...But the ADMINISTRATION is HORRIBLE because I had this problems with this girls and the only thing the school could do was suspend them for the WEEKEND. I think this is administration should pay more attention to the kids. But the teacher are AWESOME!"

    "This school is disgusting. I hated it completely. There was no student displine. Some of the teachers didn't teach my child anything. My child would come home everyday and tell me she was hungry because their foor was either disgusting, or they didn't serve her enough. It is a very cheap school. Also, the Principal and Assistant Principals have no respect for the children or the parents. The 8th graders HAVE to turn in their uniforms that us parents bought with our own money. If they do not turn in their uniforms, they are not allowed to wear whatever they want for the last week of school. There's spider webs and dead roaches around the entire school. I just do not think this school is suitable for young children and I would not recommend this school to anyone. I would rather home school my child."
