Our family is committed to the following Mission and Vision-
Mission-We will influence students to become independent, competent and innovative learners, who become successful, confident leaders of tomorrow.
Vision-We will ignite a passion for learning, where effort and imagination leads to innovation.
What does all that mean? It means that our family has agreed to plan everyday with student success as the focus. What does success mean to us? Success is determined when all students show progress and feel safe while they are at school. We want them to leave our school ready for the next phase of their education.
Gentry Junior offers many opportunities for students to find their niche and grow academically. Math and Reading is double blocked so that all students can be prepared for high school and beyond.
We provide electives and clubs that encourage students to get involved with the school and other students. Examples include: Band, Orchestra, Choir, Athletics, Theater Arts, Art, Technology Applications, STEM, Algebra and Spanish. We are accomplished in UIL, History Fair, Student Council, Crimestoppers, National Junior Honor Society.
We are a proud family that has experienced success and growth for the past three years in state testing. Our academic growth is due to a commitment to student learning. We target our approach and dig in when the challenges are hard. This year, Gentry received a “B” rating and 4 Distinctions in Math, Postsecondary Readiness, Closing the Gaps, and Comparative Academic Growth. This is exciting to experience, and we have goals set in place to become an “A” campus.
Attendance is important and we have joined the district in a campaign to increase our attendance rate. You will see this message in all we do. Missing School = Missing Out! Every Minute Matters! We are communicating regularly that an absence is an absence no matter if it is excused or unexcused. Research shows that excessive absences can affect whether children read proficiently by the end of third grade or if they are held back. By sixth grade, chronic absence becomes a leading indicator that a student will drop out of high school. We will systematically contact parents/guardians to help if needed.
Thank you for supporting our staff and students with enthusiasm and positivity as we continue to Grow Giants at Gentry Junior School.
