I love this school!!! When my 8 year old son started in 2nd grade he was several levels behind in reading, but now he exceeds grade level expectations!!! I'm a proud mom & I'm SO greatful to the teachers & staff at Griswold.

I have waited each year for my daughter to have a better experience than the previous year but it has not happened. I grew up in Berlin myself and began in their school system in 6th grade so I was hoping for a better experience for my little girl but first grade was good, 2nd grade was awful due to retiring teacher and unruly students, my daughter was in fear of her teacher most of the year until the end (after much work on my part to get them to click). Third grade she had a good teacher but over crowding of students made teaching difficult and she was lost in the shuffle, 4th grade was good because she had her 1st grade teacher again and this year is just as bad as second.. new math plan is okay but the fact that my daughter was never taught her simple math facts has really showed, student teacher taking over and regular teacher hardly present in classroom, once again, she is lost in the shuffle. I have not been heard by those in charge again this year with my request for a particular teacher who I KNOW would have clicked with my daughter and that request was denied. I am sad that her first formative years have been stressful & have affected her love of learning.

Excellent school! Adminisration is awesome and the teachers go above and beyond! I have nothing negative to say about the school at all.

My daughter had a great experience with Griswold school and I as a parent have nothing bad to say about the quality of education. The only thing I did not like were the fund raising choices. I do not care for the selling of baked goods, gift wrap and pies. I would rather have and support fund raisers that offer accessories/tote bags that display my childs art and/or stationary designed by my child. I liked all of her teachers. They held her responsible, challenged her educationally and encouraged good study habits to carry through into middle school. I enjoyed the family activities and events held through out the year. Two thumbs up!
