The teachers at this school work diligently to improve students' scores and create differentiated common core based lessons to prepare students for their future careers. The dedication of the staff is inspiring.

Teachers use the Michigan Model of Health through Wayne RESA to help students with interpersonal communication skills, social emotional skills, and self-management skills. The school also has two clubs: Girls with Pearls and the Gentlemen's Club, that improve those skills.

The teachers/staff are always thinking about what's best for the students. They keep parents informed and bring parents into the school to get opinions and assistance in planning school events, curriculum, and interventions.

My child went to Grandport for grades 4-7. I am really surprised by the comment I have read on here. While the district does not provide art, music or gym, the staff of grandport offer many things for the children. Teachers stand outside everyday after school and there is an occasional fight but not anything you wouldn't see any where else. I have never seen a staff member allow any fight...ever. They have tutoring and the teachers volunteer. They have clubs at lunch in their classes. They have Fabulous Friday ever week to reward good behavior. When I spoke to the teachers they genuinely cared about my kids progress. What I did see....was parents not supporting teachers. I mean yelling at teachers and the principal in the office when even I could see that their child was in the wrong. Just setting a horrible example of disrespect toward adults and then you wonder why the children don't respect the teachers. If parents worked with the school, grandport could be a top notch school!!

Our child attends Grandport Academy and this will be our child's last year at this school. There are no programs (as mentioned below) like art, music, or even gym! I find that our child is bored and unchallenged. Also, my child has received many spelling tests that were graded as 100% - however there were obvious misspellings that should have been marked wrong. Correspondence with the teacher makes me feel as if I'm speaking with an uneducated person. (Using "cuz" instead of "because" and other slang terms). I understand that teachers are underpaid and overworked, but really? Another issue at the school is fighting. There have been several incidents of our child's classroom being completely disrupted due to fights (in and out) of the classroom. One fight was during a test, in which the teacher gave everyone an A on the test out of sheer frustration. (Her words to me). I want our child to earn an education and be given the grades which were actually EARNED!

I have absolutely no idea what these other people on here are talking about. My son goes here and i am an active parent, I pick my children up everyday of the school year and in a whole school year i have only seen one fight, I love the teachers especially the special education teachers they have taught my son so much and brought him a long way, now as for the principal she has retired and I am very glad for that. So looking forward to what the next principal will bring to the school.

This school really needs to get/be more involved, get it together. I'm very disappointed in the Ecorse school system. I was born and raised in Ecorse. And since I've been back it seems like Ecorse is going down. I may take my son out of Grandport.

This school is one of the best schools in the downriver community. The teachers offer a lot of academics and enrichments for my children. The school uses computer generated progress reports and report cards. I'm always updated on my child's progress. However, I wish they had gym, music, and art. You can't expect children to go through the day without any outlets. Something to think about ?

I used to love this school. I grew up in the school system but when you start hearing more about the budget and not about the students learning somethings wrong. Staff I feel aren't role models for the kids everyone has turned out to 'it's all about me'.
