TGS has been a great school for my middle schooler. He can be a handful, but Ms Patton and his advisor are very helpful and keep me updated on all the things I need. He is happy, as am I.

Our experience with The Gregory School has been a positive one. Our daughter has attended from 6th through 11th grade so far, and our experience has been encouraging and supportive teachers and administrators with creative ideas and the drive to make positive opportunities happen. It`s a small enough school that the teachers truly know your child`s personality and character, not just their name. The overall atmosphere to me seems motivating, enthusiastic, and supportive of success on multiple levels, promoting a challenging academic curriculum and higher education, but not with excessive or overly competitive high-pressure tactics or myopic focus on grades, tests, or one-path answers to future plans. Teachers, administrators, and support staff realize your kids are individuals, not numbers. Focus is not limited, but well-rounded, inclusive of academic, artistic, and athletic pursuits and diverse ideas. I would absolutely recommend The Gregory School.

Our daughter has blossomed over the past several years at The Gregory School. Every aspect of her education has exceeded our expectations. The environment is challenging but also nurturing. The teachers and facilities are exceptional.

We love The Gregory School. The teachers are passionate and willing to go the extra mile for their students, frequently creating customized assignments to engage individual students. Both upper and middle school administration is fantastic and supportive of students and their families. The campus is inviting. Best school in town without a doubt!

The Gregory School offers great education for both my children. They have small classes and I love how each teacher really knows your child.We have been in this school since Middle school and currently they are in High School. Teachers are approachable & they offer a variety of subjects and after school activities.Most importantly, my children feel safe, happy and always ready and eager to go to school!

We currently have a middle school and an upper school student at TGS. This is our fifth year at the school and we are extremely satisfied. The faculty are outstanding and very invested in their students. The small class sizes, advisory groups, and tutorials built into the daily schedule afford teachers the opportunity to truly know their students. While the classes are academically rigorous, the students have many resources to help them when needed. There is also attention given to positive personal development. The school offers many extras, including a fabrication lab, a writing center, fall interim trips for every grade, and Friday exploration schedule for learning outside of the classroom. There is much camaraderie among the students, even between grades and opportunities for differentiated learning. The administration are approachable and pro-active towards implementing positive changes to continue to make the school outstanding in so many ways. We truly love The Gregory School.

We have had 4 children attend this wonderful school! Our first to graduate was in 2007 and our last will be in 2020. The present leadership at the school is outstanding. They are innovative in their approach to education and it inspires and motivates the individuals to reach their goals and potential.

My son dreaded school throughout elementary school, but he now loves it. When he did a shadow day, he fell in love with the Gregory School as he got to play a czar in a readers' theater of a Russian folk tale in English class. He is engaged and excited to learn every day, and the small class size fosters closeness between students and teachers. My son especially loves studying computer programming. My daughter is inspired by her art, theater and dance classes. Students are able to explore whatever they are interested in. The teachers love working here and have a great, friendly rapport with students. They are passionate about teaching, which inspires the students to love learning. The teachers bring out the best in the students through their thoughtful teaching and genuine caring.

I have been thrilled with the education and attention given to my daughter. I had only planned on keeping her at The Gregory School for one year and transitioning her to another school with her brother for HS. I realized within a few months that the small class sizes and commitment of the teachers and administrators was a much better fit. Not happy about commuting to two schools every morning but more than happy about my decision to keep her there.

Small class sizes, excellent and committed faculty and administration, first rate academics, and kind/supportive students make Gregory an absolutely wonderful school. Students never "fall through the cracks" because there simply aren't any cracks. I have two children there now, one in high school and one in middle school, and I couldn't be happier with their educational experiences.
