Both my girls went to GNG Middle School which is grades 5 - 8. Both played in the Middle School band. They participated in after school sports or activities. As with all kids they got on better with some teachers than others, but there was no doubt all their teachers wanted them to succeed. The middle school still has recess every day which I think is important for kids ( a lot of schools no longer have recess). All the kids participate in PE, Art, Music, Spanish, Media Arts (computer technology) and Tech Ed (design, technology and shop class). They both went on to graduate from GNG High School and finished in the top 10 of their class. Both obtained 4 year college scholarships as a result of their education at Gray-New Gloucester. There are richer school districts, but GNG affords students who are willing to work with a great opportunity.

The Quality of the academics are not that great. the teachers have no tpatience for their students and go straight to yelling at them. This school shows a lack of wanting the children to have a balanced and active lifestyle. They only allow the children to have gym every other dayfor only two quarters. They allow very little parent involvement. The teachers are allowed to hold all of the students so late for lunch, that more than not, the students have less than 5 minutes to eat their lunches. I offer my sincerest apologies for anyone that has the unfortune to have their children attend their school. P.S. your child should be average and not enjoy school in order to go here because they make it a living nightmare for the students that are intelligent and don't fit in the redneck box
