Grant is a great school. The instructors and administration are sincerely dedicated to providing it's students a good education and constantly encouraging a college education. Don't judge Grant because of its location. It has less crime than other high schools in the nearby communities. Grant is a "diamond in the ruff".
You need to be aware of the teacher's association. They will put themselves before your child. Once your child is profiled by anyone of them, your child will not get a fair education at this school. The Principle and the Twin River District aka Grant Union District will not aid you in correcting it. Your child will be put under great stress, needed instruction will be withheld, and they will receive unfair grades. I suggest if your child is in this school district and is having problems, remove them immediately and place them in a charter school. This school will keep them from getting a fair education and get paid for it at their expense. The Principle and the Twin River District aka Grant Union District will do little or no a thing to help your child secure a fair education, it is all about the money.
Grant high school is such and amazing and diverse school!.. the teachers are very motivational and creative in their techniques. there are many clubs and after school programs which make this school so much more better. The academic courses there have a hint of difficulty and can use a little more emphasis but overall, this school is amazing!
Grant is a good school. The AP teachers are the best, but the school is more focused on the sports and football. The students who have good grades are not recognized until graduation day and even though Grant is known for football, its the worst when it comes to academics.
