Gentry High School Conversion Charter School Reviews

Overall, the experience attending this school was great. All the teachers are welcoming and generally want the best for you. Growing up here I learned that it is hard to pick a valedictorian because everyone is really smart. Of course there are always fun days - like when the sports switch roles and the girls play football for a day and the boys play volleyball for a day. Or like when each grade tries to compete for the "spirit stick" for the year. Or when all the teachers get in front of the school and dances to generations of songs. Something I would change would be the amount of days we get out of school. On icy days or snow days or too cold days, I believe sometimes they should be a little more lenient towards the weather. I understand they are trying to get us to summer quicker, but some days it's too much to go to school when they ask you to. We need to give our brains break too. Nothing says "brain reliever" rather than learning school is canceled.

Gentry High School is a very good place to attend High School. They do not just have a lot of things for you to be involved with, they have a lot of things that will help you graduate with scholarships and they have just the right amount of people where you will have tons of friends even if your not one of the "popular" kids.
I enjoyed attending Gentry High School and was happy to have graduated from Gentry. During my last year of school, Gentry became a conversion charter school. This allowed me to graduate with 20 hours of college credit before enrolling in my university. This helped me prepare for my future education by continuing at a lower cost than at the university alone and gave me the privilege to be in an environment with my high school teachers to help me along the way.
