"Many of the teachers are incredible. A few are just OK, but they are being phased out. Fairly advanced classes (all are Honors-level), AP classes too. Some use traditional methods, others do really unique and interesting things. Feels like college sometimes. The campus is quite nice. Very open. The weather is great, hallways are outdoors. So much open space. Incredible views. Lots of glass. Some old, some new buildings. It's a private school in a good neighborhood. Almost all families are upper-middle or upper-income professionals. The campus has security but is not tightly guarded, but that's a good thing because it doesn't feel like a prison (like other area schools). The communication between parents & students, the administration, and the board needs improvement for sure. Parents and students don't really have input in any of the decisions made by the administration. They are pleasant, but the Head of School is the only one with any power. If you want really competitive sports, the school doesn't play in a big league like other local ones, but they usually do pretty well when they compete. There are a variety of clubs, along with art, music, and theater."
"We couldn't be happier with this school. It offers the perfect combination of academics, community and extracurricular activities. My kids moved from a local charter school that absolutely killed their love of learning. It's back at the Gregory School."
"Tucson has so many options for high school, and I looked at each one objectively for my child and chose Gregory for many reasons. Overall it provides the most well-rounded education, if you care about great academics as well as great art, sports and extracurricular clubs and being held accountable for community projects, then Gregory is the best option. The classes are small, teachers respond immediately to concerns and tutoring is offered daily, and encouraged. The athletic teams have great school spirit, we have highly ranked teams going to states, and art classes that are more inspired than those I took in college. The campus is the most attractive in all of Tucson and the science building is incomparable with beautiful labs and inspired teachers. There is dedicated college counseling with a very devoted counselor and a huge college fair annually. The student body has a large international contingent, my child has friends from South Africa, German, Ukraine, China, Turkey and Brazil. It's incredible! I think it's impossible to find a better option for middle or high school, just send your child for a one day on campus visit and they will not want to go anywhere else."
"While it was just renamed, the school is still the same. My daughter is in high school and her teachers are excellent. They all have advanced degrees in the field and they are experienced in the classroom. The academics are great preparation for a top-tier college or university, but they value critical thinking, writing skills, and creativity over pure test prep like you see at many other schools. Students are well rounded because of arts, sports, and extracurriculars. The education is great, but the school is run by its biggest donors who are appointed to the school board."
"St. Gregory completely prepared both of my children for college. They went to competitive universities and one has sailed through and graduated, while the other is a junior and doing beautifully. Both will tell you that it was their preparation at St. Gregory that afforded them the opportunity to become critical thinkers, have a connection to their college professors, and most importantly have a desire to be lifelong learners. It was worth every cent....enroll today. I cannot believe that my grown children still think that St. Gregory was the best choice they ever made."
