GES has made some vast improvements in the past two years with the appointment of a new principal. Most of the teachers we've had have been excellent, and truly care about the students progress and well-being. GES has an awesome art and music program in addition to the standard academic classes, which is not a part of most other elementary school in the area. The new administration has turned around all of the areas that bothered me in the past (lack of communication, disorganization, etc.) and also completely changed the atmosphere to a caring environment where kindness matters.

The school tries to get technology possible to learn better. The facility are average. College prep is enforced even for the students that can not afford it. The school tries to allow equal opportunity. Tutoring has to be done outside of school. The teachers may recommend someone. Some teachers teach you themselves. They also send parent notices and made websites for them. I really don't know much about busing because most students walk. I know they are able to go in select areas when I think some students can be picked up from there.
The school is very open to different careers so they have the programs to fit them.There are some teachers that act like they dont care. Overall majority of the faculty does car. I like the safeness of the environment. I also like the school is well known so on my resume' my employer will know I am well prepared for my job.
