Profile Completeness


Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

I love this school. My istep scored have never been so high. I'm in the accelerated classes for language arts and math. I'm currently in 7th grade. Most of the teachers are sooo nice and wonderful. My fav is Mrs.Adamo (social studies is amazballs!), Mrs.Martin, and Mrs.Gouker. I have excelled so much at this school that it just blows my mind. I get very challenged at this school sense I am in the accelerated classes. Being challenged is good cuz if ur not then your not really learning anything. If ur going to sixth grade i hope you get Mr. Simpson and Mr. Burns(best teachers ever)

In actuality, this school exists in the middle of a cornfield - not a ghetto. If its students are 90% low income (an accusation I doubt), they bring in enough fundraising money to provide free uniforms including top-rated football helmets for its football players (unlike Discovery located in the same district). We live in the Mishawaka school district and chose Grissom in the Penn school district instead. The teachers are friendly and care about the students. Parents can check online to see if their children have homework, what their test scores were, and what afterschool activities are happening. Parents are also given teacher's contact information. The school offers regular sports, intermural activities and sports, and various academic bowl opportunities. My son was concerned before attending that the other students would not accept him and would make fun of him because he was homeschooled for most of his life. He not only made friends quickly, but the coach kept me updated on how he was fitting in with others. He loves going here.

This school is the ghetto! 90% of the kids are low-income, trashy, don't care about anything. Serves mostly Village Green (a trashy trailer park), the ghetto of Mishawaka, and the ghetto of Osceola. Would much rather go to Schmucker or Discovery!

I am a seventh grader that goes to Grissom. I love the school and all the rules are really fair. I think the FACS class is the best and Mrs. Johnson, Mr. Larson, Ms. George, Mrs. Zdziebko, Mrs. McBride, Mrs. Adamo, Ms. Stafford, Mr. Russell, and Coach L are the best teachers in the whole world! I love them all. This school is the greatest and no matter what the Guardsmen are the greatest and best!

My 7th grader is an A student. I'm a single working mother and I trust the teachers to help me keep him motivated and learning. Good work! Middle income kids, not spoiled, work for what they get. Great teachers and great principal!
