Gentian was first established in 1955. We educate and serve students in grades K-5th. Through a caring and knowledgeable faculty and staff, we strive to ensure students leave each day having gained knowledge in various content areas. We also believe in providing an emotionally, socially, physically, and intellectually safe environment for students to thrive. Our goal is for students to leave Gentian feeling confident and accomplished.
