    My son is in the Pre-K program for the 2012-13 school year. He has a speech delay and I was unsure of sending my 3YO to school every day (8 25am-11 10am). After meeting Mrs. Marter and her aides Mrs. S & Miss Tina seeing the classroom I was convinced this was going to be a great experience for him. His speech & communication has improved by leaps & bounds in just the few short months of the school year. The staff at the school is very friendly and most are greeting the kids at the front doors by name- if they are not outside helping move traffic around in the drop off zone - even the princpal is there every morning. There have been some changes in the days after the Sandy Hook shooting and the school district was very good at communicating the changes. There are lots of activies at the school and opportunities for parents to be involved - even if you work during school hours. I am just sorry that we must leave the district before my son starts kindergarten.

    Wonderful teachers and a caring environment. We could not have been happier with our child's experience at GRE.
