I'm new to the district and was suppose to be at Paul Norton, but I must say so far I like this school for the following reasons... 1) Ethnic Diversity 2) Small School Atmosphere 3) Economic Diversity 4) The teachers are proactive and very communicative 5) The principal seems very hands on and efficient 6) The secretary has always been helpful Downsides mostly are with the district... 1) Bus system 2) Grade/Class placement
Great students, and a staff that works together beautifully. I sent my own child here for Pre-K and would have kept him here if we didn't want him to get to know the kids who live in our neighborhood. I love coming to work every day because of how caring the staff and families are.
We researched many schools before starting at Grant Wood. You couldn't ask for a better school. Great teachers, lots of parental involvement and well behaved students. School offers a morning walking club for students, physical fitness is very much encouraged.
