Grant Elementary School 3

Having had experience with several other elementary schools with my oldest daughter and now my youngest I feel that I can give an honest assessment of my experience with Grant. First of all, 2013 was a rough year for this school with a principle change mid year. I think that has a lot to do with previous reviews. My daughters fifth grade teacher was excellent and communicated with me constantly which is very important. The school is not up to date with technology but I still feel that the education my daughter received was excellent, even if it was still old school. There was a lot of school activities and field trips through out the year. This school does require uniforms but have 3 color top options to choose from. Easy drop off/pick up area. The school is tucked away in a lovely neighborhood with a fire station less than a mile away. The playground is great! Plenty of swings! Minus two stars for lack of technology in the classrooms, running out of spirit wear by November, yearbooks not arriving until a week after school ended and lastly, not being upfront about the REAL reason their was a principle switch mid year. Google mno grant elementary principle and you'll see!

When I went to this school from second to fifth grade, I had great teachers, I learned a lot, and I made friends with faculty and classmates alike. Unfortunately, the class sizes are very large for elementary schools. When I was going there, they had a school choir and school band, but I do not know if they still have those music programs any more. I do not know if they still have it, but they used to have classes to help students that had learning disabilities and were slower learners. They have a huge auditorium that is also used as the cafeteria. When I was there, the music room was very nice. They had a gigantic cement and grass areas for kids to do recess.

This school is terrible. The principle is horrible.The teachers are great but have way too many students. The children are getting worse every year. there is no disipline. The bad kids run the school period.

If you are really serious about your son or daughter's academic success, enroll them elsewhere. The current principal is not doing enough to improve the school environment and educational quality. My son attended 5th grade here in 2011 and it was a subpar experience. The classroom was a mess, no pencil sharpener. Very poor first, second and third impressions. If school funding is an issue, start writing to the mayor an city council, then mobilize the community to fundraise, do something for God's sake. The students at Grant Elementary (Antioch schools in general) are falling behind the high performing schools such as San Ramon, Dublin and Pleasanton. It's pathetic. Please, please, please.

I have found the principal and teachers very easy to communicate with. They are high quality individuals and want the best for their students. My child transferred there from another local school and I have never regretted the decision. They have now established a music program which my child loves.

I had ups and dows with the quality of this school. However 'funds' I will say are killing more our public schools. The number of students in class have being increasing throughout the years, teachers seemed more busy then past years, quality therefore will be affected. There is not music programs and PE is just a matter of one hour per week. There is not interest in any kind of sport.
