The school is good but the space is so small, they need more space, and some activities recreatives after classes, The school need more maintenance, some classrooms don't have smartboard, and windows for ventilation, some more programs for parents to participate in school. The district needs to give more funds to school.
I love Grant School because their teachers are very nice including it's principle. My child says he loves that school, I love it, my family loves it, and I hope the school be open for many years to come.
Although the school is small, I think there are more than a handful of good teachers. Even though the classrooms and the whole school are crowded, I think that the kids and the teachers really do love the school, I do. Also, maybe they should keep one principal for a longer time and that way they can work on adding more space to the school. I am glad that my kids go to Grant School.
This school is too small for the volume of children attending. I do not know why others schools in the same district and in Melrose Park, have visible improvements and expansions year after year and Grant Elementary, nothing. It is a sardine box and not an ideal environment for quality schooling. It is a shame. There is a quality principal currently and a handful of quality teachers. Overall there is no love for this school, no sense of ownership from the village or the district.
