This is an excellent school that challenges students and offers opportunities to try new subject areas. The Agriscience program is really wonderful. The students actually travel to the school farm property during their period for lessons and to care for the plants and animals. The staff and faculty have always been very responsive when we've had questions or concerns. I feel my sons were (one is a freshman) and are (one in gr. 6) lucky to have gone to Gray.

Gray Middle School is great! So glad we transferred our son from a charter school. Now my child is receiving a real education, has great teachers, various electives that are interesting and educational, and great leadership. The brand new building is clean and has everything the students and staff need. There is a police officer there daily. Well run, great teachers, admin, guidance and principals.

My school is overall a great school. Im in all honors classes and I love all my classes & teachers! even if your in the lower classes as long as you try hard you will do fine! The only thing I do not like is that we have assigned seating arrangments and once we seat there we cant leave unless we have a very good reason! And the other thing is I don't think they offer enough electives. but other then that great school!

My Grandson entered Gray from Groveland Elem. he was not interested in school at all. I have seen so much of improvement in his attitude and his knowledge of wanting to learn. He is A-B honor roll and the teachers have alot to do with that, I have never seen him this interested-please know that I want to thank all of you for keeping his attention and getting him ready for high school 2014.

My child had a great experience at Gray Middle School. She received a great education from wonderful teachers. The administration & support staff are top notch.

Love this school! I have great respect for the teachers and administration. I really like the way they keep the different grade levels separated throughout the day. They really make an effort to keep the kids on track!

I am very unhappy with this school and its' leadership. This has been one of the worst years yet of my child's education. The experiences that I have had are "driving" me to go back to school. I will be getting my bachelors so that I can seek employment with in the district to try to help the children in the area. Highly unsatisfactory.

I wish they would fix the new school up because this is crazy having our children in portables.

I have a granddaughter that has LD and the ESE counselor office staff, and teachers have been so supportive of her! Great teachers because they have an awesome principal.

Gray really has some wonderful teachers, and it is a real shame that Lake County leadership continues to keep the same inept administration at this school. The principal is absolutely rude to parents and students, and never leaves her office. The Assistant Principals are also rude to parents and have absolutely no control of the students. A new building will certainly help next year, but until there is a huge shake up in administration, nothing will change. Finally, there is high percentage of Hispanic students, and literally 2 staff members who speak Spanish. The staff/faculty do not reflect the demographics of the school. There is also high teacher turn over, which is a huge concern of mine.

My Daughter went here for her 8th gade year. We pulled her out and switched to Windy Hill. I attended a parents day at this school I could not belive how run down it was and the staff could care less what the students did. Groveland/Mascotte is a low income area and it shows in the quality of this school and its staff. I cant see how this school has a A rating, it must be on a very low sliding scale.

This is by far one of the worse schools I have ever had to deal with. We relocated here over a year ago where my daughter was a gifted student. A year and a half later we are still waiting for them to 'test' her. The administrative staff leave much to be desired and the school as a whole do not make new families feel welcome at all! I am so glad that this is her last year there!
