    This is a wonderful school and gives your child each and every oppurtunity at a wonderful education. They go the extra mile for your child. The principal is a wonderful person.

    My children were transferred from Lopez to Gorenflo. Because of all the 'hype' I was scared to death to send my children there. Well almost two years later I am so pleased with the quality of their education and the leadership. Awesome school with awesome principal couselors secretaries and nursing staff.

    I love Gorenflo because of the spirit of the community it represents.Gorenflo was newly renovated just before Katrina hit the area and wrecked the beautiful new school.But like the community it is in Gorenflo school cannot be kept down.It's back better than ever.
