    This is a great place to learn. The teachers here are hard workers and don't let anybody slack off. They are constantly enforcing the importance of the future and how to improve it. It is a fun loving school which is like a home away from home.

    I am currently attending henry t. gage middle schoool. As a matter of fact i am an eighth grader. I have maintained a 4.O throughout 6 7 and 8th grade. I dont understand why so many people have negative perspectives about gage. Basically it all depends on the student not the school if your child wants to succeed they will. if they dont well thats their decision.The teachers are very supportive and always willing to give a helping hand. The programs and electives are okay. the one thing that i recomend by expirence is the avid and the magent program perhaps the most rigourous and challgening cources here at gage. go spartans!

    I am a student at Gage MS. I don't like this school it is not well in academic achievement. This school is dirty and is full of troublemakers. It's not a good school it has low students that are lazy. Also they are not willing to work. All they care about is being cool and don't focus on what really matters.

    I was a former student in gage.All i can say is that i love that scool.Yes there were fights but they were so easy to stay away from and plus the deans...Mr.hooper Ms.Camacho... were very good with dissipline.The teachers there are very intrested in the students education.They have some of the best teachers ever.

    I was a student at this scool a couple of years ago and I don't like this school. The way that teachers treat their students is apolling and the descipline is terrible. Too many fights and unfullfilled promises by the school this was by far the worst school I've ever gone too. I go to another school now where I am an honor student andI can see how much techers care for their students here not like Gage. I dont recommended a parent to send their child to Henry T. Gage Middle School.

    im a student at gage middle school and it's just a great school! sure there are a few fights but its so easy to stay away from them. i am an honors student and my two teachers Ms.Hayes (math and science) and Ms.Blaze(english & social studies) are wonderful educators!

    I am a former student and I feel that Gage is an ok school in which you can choose to succeed or fail in. Of course the quality of the teachers makes a difference. I was part ofthe honors program and the teachers did their best in trying to guide us in the path toward a higher education. Perhaps the faculty and staff could have done a better job in acknowledging that students are humans since we were often treated as ignorant beings being bossed around! Despite this I would recommend this school to others since its up to the student to make the best out of their educational experience.

    I am curently attending this school and well i acually like this school because i'm in a program called Magnet and it has classes more advanced and you get to learn more stuff and have field trips. This school is great!

    I am very glad my daughter has had good teachers for this semester (2006-2007) especially Mr. Acero & Mrs. Arellano they are very dedicated & really care about our kids education unlike a few teacher still being employed.

    I currently attend this school I am in the Magnet program and I think that it is a good-great school. The teachers really care about us the students. I'm in the eight grade and I'm already taking 9th grade math(geometry) and it is great because the program really wants to teach us things that are more advanced. The teachers take the time to explain things and there are about 20 students per class. My current science and english teacher Mr. Nunez really makes it fun for us to learn the (boring things). We do a lot of experiments and it's fun too. I really don't get tired of learning! I would recommend this program to anyone that wants to learn the fun and more interesting way.Also in our last year(8th grade) the eight graders do a lot of fun things such as dances and field trips.

    English math history science and P.E. I had been interested that this school is a distinguished school for me because I can learn a lot with my teachers I have. My best teachers at Gage from 6th Grade is Ms.Rodriguez who was my math and Science teacher. Also for 6th Grade my homeroom teacher was Ms.Pacheco who was really kind and she was cool because the whole class reads together.She gives us candies when we behave really well. I like my 6th grade year a lot because it was my year that I've really focused at.
