Amount of homework: Disagree

In relation to other schools within San Diego Unified I've heard that Grant gives out more homework than most for Kindergarten

My son recently finished Kindergarten and had a really great experience. The teachers seem really invested in the child and there's a great sense of community amongst the parents. We are so pleased with Grant and looking forward to another great year.

Grant has been an extremely positive and rewarding experience for my 2nd grader. he rushes in to school in the morning to start his day.

Our daughter just started at Grant in the third grade this year. So far, it's been a very positive experience. She's very happy, made lots of friends and is learning a lot. She has a wonderful dedicated teacher and there is strong parental involvement. We're very happy to have her in Grant and look forward to keeping her there all the way through 8th grade.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree

The teachers at grant elementary cant teach. They also dont listen to what the parents say. If you say please dont give sweetsto your child they ignore you.

The theachers cant teach. The students are stuck up and so are their parents. If you dont have expensive clothes ,stuff you will be judged. Its a terrible school.

This school has great racial and socio-economic diversity. There is a great sense of community and parent involvement. Grant has a very active PTA that hires professionals to supplement the science and art programs. Grant offers a variety of after-school programs and specialized classes. Teachers are concerned about their students, and students generally get along well. Grant has an excellent special education team and highly-trained teachers for GATE students. Grant is like a private school on a public budget!

The teachers are active and involved in the children's education. The families have a great sense of community, and contribute in many, many ways to enrich the kids' school experience. With that said, there are cliques and occasional bouts of elitism and agenda pushing here and there. Nowhere is perfect. By and large a great school for anyone's children.

Horrid school! The students are mean and judgmental, as well as very cliquey. The teachers are hypocritical and just cannot teach. I sent my daughter here for 7th grade and students from all grades talked behind her back and started rumors about her. Many of these students ,especially in 8th grade, do drugs and try to get 6th and 7th graders to do it too. This school is sick and a waste of my time. Don't do this to your child and send them here. This school is so overrated it makes me sick in the stomach. This school might have a good and high API, but that API doesn't mean a thing when the students are two-faced and snobby and cause my own strong willed daughter to try to commit suicide! I pulled her out immediately and am now going to send her to De Portala or Correia because of this horrible mess they call a school. Don't waste your time on this school.
