I went to this middle school in 2008-2010. I thought this was an amazing school that helped my in my academics. The teachers helped me with so many things. I joined all the sports my both years, and being involved was very fun.
yo! im edgar cornejo i attended this school about four years ago. i have to say it was the best experience ever. i joined every sport for boys and i was really involved with the sports and i really enjoyed doing the every week :)
I attended Graves Middle School about four years ago. I will be graduating from California High School this year and I do not forget any of my middle school teachers. They all made it enjoyable and I disagree with anyone calling this school ghetto. It's campus is the best middle school campus I have seen. Enven though it doesn't not have an auditorium like East Whittier Middle School, GMS's gymnasium and 50's theme cafeteria make up for it! I loved my 7th and 8th grade years there and wouldn't change it!! Go Panthers!!!
I currently go to this school and the past comments are all true good and bad im a 4.0 gpa honors student they now have an honors program called The Academy we go on field trips every quarter this year the 1st Quarter we went to an Islam Mosuq Basiclly an Islamic church but we didnt go to pray or warship we went to study how a different culture did different things then ours the 2nd Quarter we went to Biola U in Southern California 3rd Quarter we didnt go anywhere but 4th quarter if we meet our Academic goal we can go to Disneyland but to not be biased i will explain the falls of our school i have seen some of the regular students teachers being pushed around by students because they do not really care about the kids education so thats my coment ,Joshua
Well GMS is not only an educational school but fun at the same time. I've been here for 7th & 8th grade and this is my last year at GMS. I'm very sad because I will be going to High School next year and if you are looking for a school that will help your children learn I reccomend you to send your child to GMS. They have the best studying techniques for taking tests and much more. If you send your child at GMS you won't regret it. I LOVE THIS SCHOOL!....
I am a former students at Graves. The teachers try there best but its not ut fault that the kids just arent trying. I attended there and when i tried i acctually did good and the teachers never give up on youu. Most students attendng there think they are all 'bad' and they will try anything just to prove it. don't blame the school just cause the parents arent doing a good job. yeaaaa doggg.-
i am a former student of this school and i must say that the teachers that i had were always working on ways to benefit me. The staff does it's best to try and motivate a student body that is trying very little. The school is still continuing to better itself and in time will achieve it's goal.
i do not agree that they mix bad students with honors students. the student below me probably went to gms before they had the honors program and academy. i recommend this school
I am a former student from GMS and it was absolutely terrible. The students there do not care about education and the teachers seem to have given up on them. Students are not motivated enough. The worst part about it was that the school mixed honor students with regular students, which left those that DID want to learn with an extremely boring class to deal with. I highly suggest another middle school if you are planning to send your child to GMS.
I totally agree this school is not a school you want to send your kids to. They don't seem to care one bit about their students. There is no type of communication with the parents.
this school is great with spactacular teacher that the #1 goal is always to teach their students. they make learning fun and easy to learn.
From what I have seen, they just don't care. If your looking to find a decent school, then your probably better off trying East Whittier or Hillview.
I love this school and I recomend for your children to go there if they want to be in a safe fun learning environment
This school is very great!They have teachers who care soooo much.They don't give up on teaching the students.They make sure the students know what they need to. -Christina...
This school has great potential if the leadership will stop focussing on numbers and let the teachers do what they do best. The students are having math and english crammed down their throats and are not allowed to explore other subjecs that would keep them motivated at school. Right now student motivation is at an all time low.
I have to say that I went to that school and the teachers are very motivated toward the students, also the after school activities were certainly very educational and entertaining. One thing that I recall was very distinct about the school was that the teachers always worked hard toward making learning fun ;it never felt like an obligation-it was simply fun to learn. -Rozie
This school was a big diaappointment for my son and I as a parent. I have to say they remodled the school and it looks great but,I feel the administrative needs some improvement. My child did not receive the resources avaliable to him being that he was in special education.The staff at Graves did not meet the requirements it takes to be a teacher. I hope there is change for the future of our children in that school district.
