My daughter has the privilege of attending this excellent school. The only reason I give it 4 stars instead of 5 is because the school building is so run down. The Hamilton County School Board has it on their "to do" list. Ganns has excellent teachers and supporting staff. The student to teacher ratio ...  Read more

As far as the actually school goes, my daughter and I absolutely love it! This is her 3rd year at Ganns and every teacher she has had has been absolutely wonderful. My biggest issue with the school is their crossing guard. I find it ridiculous that I can be in front of the school at 7:45 and my daughter ...  Read more

Principal of the year!! Go Mrs. Hollis! The principal is extremely personable and very involved with the students despite her demanding responsibilities. Gann's is in desperate need of a vice principal to lighten Mrs. Hollis' load. She is constantly in the car riders line greeting parents, in the ...  Read more
