Community ratings & reviews

    Gregory has a wonderful new Principal M. Bennett who has an awesome attitude and a heart for the children and families of the community. The school has a spectacular media center and many committed teachers from what I see. Although some parents are very involved levels of parental involvement could stand to improve. Overall I think Gregory is one of the greatest schools in the district and because of it's sound leadership continues to improve.
