Grant High school is, in lack of better words, bad. Some of the teachers were great, and very few students were accepting. The administration would rather believe rumors than investigate. Unless you are in Rotc/Jrotc or football, you are nothing to most people there. I spent most of my high school career at that trash can of a school and was kicked out over rumors. -Elijah

Grant cares deeply about the students it serves, regardless of the talent level of the child. While most departments at the school are outstanding, the Army JROTC Department has added a significant level of success in helping students achieve higher goals. The Grant Parish school system gets huge bang for its buck with the ROTC program.

i am a sophomore at grant and they do have potential to be a good school but they have taken some actions that does not make any sense once so ever to me. they have some really good teacher that will go above and beyond to help you and they have really good coach's but they really do need to punish the people in the same way and not let anyone off easy just because of friends saying 'this is what happened' because i know one friend that got in trouble and the girl who started it got off easy but my friend got the worst end of it. she got off because her friends said things that really didnt happen. so honestly i dont have a high opinion of grant

Grant high school has been a wonderful place for my child to grow academically, spiritually, and atheletically. Through the years that my child has spent at GHS evey aspect of her education has been addressed. My child has been fortunate to have had great teachers that really cared. There have a very few that were not exceptional. The administration has been supportive. The coaches have gone above and beyond to help in all ways imaginable. I would not choose another school for my child.

I am a Junior at Grant High School and I think that Grant High School is a developing school that offers a very safe and comfortable environment. Most of the teachers are excellent and are doing outstanding jobs while others are lacking in inovating teaching methods and many aren't willing to help the 'slackers'. I find that the faculty is a little too concerned with dress code,too harsh with regualtions, and too quick to find fault with the accused. The location posses as a problem, but over all Grant is improving and headed for better changes. Autumn Bladel

I'm a freshman at Grant High,and these teachers can't teach worth anything. The teachers spend way too much time on dress code violations. ~Smitty~

As a former teacher at Grant High School, I would first like to thank Mr. Crawford for allowing me to have the opportunity to work with some great people an a nice environment. I believe that Grant is heading in the right direction, and that there where alot of things I was able to take away from Grant to help me in my professional career. Location may have alot to do with teachers leaving and going, but the mission is clear at Grant High. Education is taken very serious from top to bottom. Also, it is a safe environment to send your child to school. So, I feel that Mr. Crawford has done a great job at Grant, and I really enjoyed the time I was able to spend there with a good student body. Coach Dantzler - OKC,OK

As a graduate of Grant High, the one thing that I can say is the band is top notch. The teachers were not that good, some were teaching subjects that they were not certified to teach in. Most of the teachers could not have cared less about thier students well being, all that mattered was teaching them was what required then shooing them out in exchange for the next class. If a student was failing, it was not thier problem. Most of the 4 years I was there, in some classes I had over five teachers for one subject because the teachers were always quiting. How was I supposed to learn when almost every week I had somebody else coming in and starting in a new place? GHS was nothing great.

I am a current student a Grant High. I actually enjoy the school. There are some great teachers and coaches.I also believe Grant is a better school than the majority of other schools around us. People criticize the cameras and metal detectors but i believe that in to days world you cant be to safe. I know that i feel safe at school. I really enjoy the school people need to look past the little stuff and just compare us to other schools and see just how good we have it. Cougars Rule!

Uniforms are rediculous. It seems that some of the teachers and faculty are more set on making sure we're in dress code, than actually teaching, and/or making our learning experience better. Though it may be over-exagerrating a bit, it seems as though we get some new rule to abide to every month or so. Regarding the actual school in general, I realize we don't have the money that other schools do, but it looks like when we do get money, we spend it on cameras, and metal detectors, and fences? What's the point of being safe if you can't have decent books to learn with?

I believe Grant High School has the potential to be a good school. However due to recent actions taken by faculty, the school has lost its appeal. If the teachers would worry more about who has homework instead of who dosent have the proper uniform attire on then we might not be academically challeged in the foregoing years. I also believe that the students feel threatened by the hightend security measures. Grant Parish must have spent a few hundred dollars on the new camera's, but why does my child have a book that is 8 to 9 years old? I also believe that if a student is reffered to the office, the attending student should be able to prove innocence if possible. After all, the students are the real reason that the faculty has a job. I believe Mr. Crawford acts too quickly and harshly when dealing with reffered students.

As an alumni of grant high school I have to say that i have learned alot from the falculty. I have two sisters and one cousin that attends school there now and it has changed alot since i have last been there.If the taxes were available to help improve the school in its weak spots, this school could be rated 5 stars. But thanks to good role models like Mrs.Penny Graves and Lamar Briggs the school is becoming better.

I am a current student at GHS and all in all the school is not a bad place. There are some teachers that are really good teachers and there are also some teachers that dont have a clue what they are doing. Also the uniforms are very stupid and we have cameras but they dont cover the whole school about onely 40% of it.

This school needs to sacrafice their money to books and more teaching methods instead of elevators and and cameras. Let the kids feel free and indepentant people.. This uniforms need to go they are costing us more money than just regular clothes. Because you have to buy more for the summer also.

As a parent, former employee and alumni of Grant, I have come to the realization that our school is on the cutting edge of keeping up with other schools in surrounding Parishes . We have the problem of not having the tax money of other parishes so we have to make due. We as parents need to become more active in our students lives in the classroom and in extra curricular activities. Our children are our future so let's find a way to help our educators in making them the best they can be.

I am a mother of a former ghs student and 2 current students.Before the dress code overall students seemed happier.Those that had problems with others students,still have problems. That becomes a administration problem. The safety devices really don't work because not every student goes through them. It's a poor district and the money should go to the repairs and upkeep of the school and athletic fields.

I am a former teacher of Grant High, and a parent of a student. I think that overall GHS is a good school. In response to the student comments, I do not know of any teachers that have left because of the new administration. The SADD program was discontinued because of the actions of some of the members. And the books are not old. All schools within the district are on a rotation, and new textbooks are bought for one subject each year. There may be some subjects that do not have enough books for all students to have one assigned to them, but these are electives not core subjects.
