Gertz Ressler is an amazing school. It provides countless opportunities for its students and makes sure to provide them with the best college ready experience. The teachers work very hard to have a lesson where every one can understand and if someone does not they work with that students so that they do. The staff also helps out they go in and supervise classrooms and also lend the teachers a hand in any way that they can whether it is helping a students while the teacher helps another, collecting papers etc. In general the school builds a community where everyone is safe and has a chance spread the ideas. The college counselors put in their best effort to make sure that every student gets into a college and goes to one. I have seen this in a personal experience with my sister. They helped her apply to colleges and now she is a junior UC Irvine . This is an amazing school/.

Although academically they are good at preparing their students, they are still lacking in some areas. They provide students with free SAT prep and tutoring and the teachers, for the most part, are supportive of their students and use diverse tools to be able to effectively teach all their students, but there are indeed some health issues. Recently, there has been an up-rise of roaches and rats, for which we, the students, pay the price; we see these rats, we see these roaches, yet the school neglects our needs.
I went to Alliance Gertz-Reser Richard Merkin 6-12 Complex when the two where separated back in 2011-2014. In this school, you able to know everyone in campus and become close friends with said people. The teachers were nice and full faith in each and every student. The administration was average because I only really got to know one administrator versus the three we had. We had to share some of the facilities such as the gymnasium, cafeteria, and the library with the high schoolers. At the time, we had the correct amount of resources for every student. This place gave me great memories that can never be replaced.
