    "The new principal is so rude, the 1st grade class are 25 plus kids. The traffic process for morning drop off and after school pick up are horrible! My daughter comes home and while im helping her with her homework, i ask her did the teacher go over the info about her work. And she replies no she tells us to just copy stuff off the overhead projector. So they are not teaching either! They dont go on field trips! What elementary school dont go on field trips! Terrible experience for kids. Shame on you Ms. Brooks! My daughter has been here from kindergarten to 1st grade, and im removing her. Real big question mark when it comes to planning meetings and school functions of any kind! Please beware of this school principal and staff!"

    "I was a previous student who went to Gross Elementary from Pre-K to 5th grade. Some people may say this is a terrible school, but without this so called terrible school i wouldn't be able to understand the teachings I learn now. Thanks to all the teachers and staff I currently attend the top middle school in the state of Texas which is T.H. Rogers Middle School."

    "I hate this school. My son went their for two years. His school work never surpassed kindergarden level even though he was in third grade. No Real home work daily work or anything to let you know how your child is doing until the grades came out. Kids run wild and parents are aloud to drive any where on the grass to drop off their kids endangering all who attend. Will not let any of my other children ever attend this school. FIND ANOTHER SCHOOL !!!!!!"

    "My son is now excited about learning. He spent his kindergarten and 1st grade years at a magnet school and has now excelled far more than ever before. He respects and admires his principals and teachers. That spells out great role models. The after school program is a tremendous plus with no 'waiting list' and offers a wide variety of activities including tutoring. It seemed at the magnet school they were only interested in the 'smart' kids. At Gross they are taking time to mold my son into a 'smart' kid and for that I am eternally grateful."
