I am a student at Gregory Middle School, everybody gets an easy A on at least 5 subjects! Almost everybody in our class gets the high honor role, which means you get all or mostly A's. Everyone I meet at lunch also gets high honor roles or just honor roles at the end of each and every quarter! This is

My son is currently in 8th grade at Gregory Middle School (and has been there since 6th grade) and as a parent I believe this school to be excellent preparation for high school. My son is no genius, but he has never had a problem keeping up with homework and getting good grades. I don't think they get
... Read more ENOUGH homework actually. The teachers are awesome and really care about the kids. The secretaries are very nice and helpful whenever I talk to any of them. Anyone who thinks this school is a meatgrinder or geared only towards academic stars must not be a hands-on parent who actively participates in their child's education. Sure, Naperville schools are known to 'push' kids a little harder, but it is only because the kids can handle it. If a child has been in the Naperville school system for years, they won't have any problems at Gregory keeping up. Kids coming into the district from other areas that might be behind might have trouble at first, but they WILL catch up with a little extra effort. Read less

Amen. Our child is also a Gregory Middle School Survivor. If you have an Ivy League bound academic star, you will love it here.

I have one child that is a Gregory survivor, and one that is bravely hanging in there. Apparently, Gregory is a great place if your child is one of the top tier kids who excel at everything. If (s)he is average or below, forget it. I have never seen so many teachers for whom teaching is merely an

Awesome school! I have lived in France, Belgium, Italy and the United States, and it's currently the best school I went to!

I also really enjoy the diversity of all the classes and clubs, where your likely to find what you like best. the Teachers also organize fun learning that gets you into the class, instead of having to copy 2 to 3 pages of leson during class and having to learn it by heart for the next day. It's really a school that makes learning exciting and just makes you want more. It really deserved the blue ribbon award! Read less

I just moved here in December, and I thought Gregory was okay. The classes are definitely demanding and quite difficult. My grades went down from straight 'A's to Straight 'A's and 'B's. At Gregory, you are guaranteed homework every night, and I literally sat at my desk all evening until 10 o' clock

Frustrating ! Demanding authoritarians that do not deviate from a regimented format of educational process clearly out-lined in the IPSD 204 Guidebook.
