The principal at g.r.f. is very family orientated! i read some of the rewievs and i am upset because some people have 1 bad experience as they can say and want to bring the whole school down if you got on here and gave bad reviews have you ever thaught about it may not be the school for your child and i bat your child did the same at the next school! the choice is always yours where your child go to but remember this principal has been teaching for 21 years ! must be doing something good!
I believe this is a good school! alot of people will have their opinion! No matter what school your child go to their are going to be parents who dont like it and who do! so sense my child has being going here i have seen alot of kids improve in a lot of ways grades, and behavior to. And how can they keep your scholarship money when your child is not there when the parent has to sign the child out? so if the parent do not sign the child out thats on the parent! so dont let other people opinion stop you from enrolling your child! If a parent say mcdonalds is nasty you want stop taking your child!
This school is a total scam! Do not send your children here! If you do the Principal will do all in her efforts to never let you transfer out so she can keep collecting your scholarship money. She will also continue to collect scholarship money if your student drops out. Total scam. The school should be shut down by the DOE. Never send a child here!
I recommend not to let you young child go to this place. This is not a great place to let your young one stay. the teachers seem like they barely care about the kids. No offense to the people who like this school.
