Love GE! Amazing to have a school WITH a band program, garden club, running club, and others! The PTO is amazing and funds nearly all the 'fun' stuff, including field trips! The school is part of the "Leader in me" program, which is fabulous. The staff is attentive and nurturing. One of the best schools in SCUSD. Very academically focused!
