The staff there is very caring but I don't see the help that my student needs. He struggles in ever aspect . The small classeroom sizes are great but somehow he still gets lost. My son has some learning issues and there doesn't seem to be any actual genuine help for these problems. There is some help but it doesn't seem to be doing any better than he was without it. Formats have to change and solutions are barely met at this school. They seem to dump a lot more on parents than when my generation was in grade school..

Are there any Grant-White Elementary School - Forest Park, Illinois students 1979-80-81 of Mr. Zemba, Mrs. Eyecourse, my classmates Nick, Heather, identical twins Gary and Jerry, Feather, Ray, Thor, "Champion", Dennis, Lisa. Mr. Zemba gave fake dollars to buy toys, and had a newt we had to clean. Mrs. Eyecourse had us do an academic bowl, in three teams. Mr. Philips was the principal at the time.

My child have attended Grant-White Elementary School since 2nd grade. GW is a school where the children come first. Each child is encouraged to do their personal best without being labeled as the smart or dumb kids. The teachers are highly skilled and work hard to bring out the best in each child. The principal by the name of Ms. Trotter is kind and knows each child by name. She is a great example of a leader and I am glad that she is the principle at my child's school. I just feel that more academics like Spanish need to be brought in. Nonetheless, I would like to thank GW for countinuing to bring out the best in my child and for giving him the encouragement and confidence he will one day need to go out into the real world!'

This is the worst school in Forest Park. The principal is great. The school has far too many transient kids from the many rentals near it.

The class sizes are great. Having small classrooms helps to evaluate what individual needs are required of students. Parent involvement has always exceeded normal standards. As a parent of a 9yr old, homework just gets tougher on them and the motivation from a teacher here just is exceptional.
