    I cannot say enough good things about this school the principal teachers and district! Gretnan is wonderful and Patti Brownlee is the best. We are looking at moving out of state and leaving this school is heartwrenching. Mrs. Brownlee knows each child's name and they flock to her. Gretna Squire John Thomas is lucky to have her! Great school! Lots of parental involvement too.
