    The superintendent wrecked this school by asking the much-loved principal Mrs. Hemmen to leave. She was doing a great job and now lots of parents are talking about pulling their children from there. She is the one who needs to go. Bring back Hemmen. BOO!

    GSES is an excellent school. Students get individualized education. Children are tested then sent to their corresponding levels for literacy. The kids are well behaved and diverse.
