This is not a good choice for a student who may not be very self directed. Students all have chrome books, and assignments and tests are emailed to the student! My student is in school seven hours, and always brings home a good 2 - 3 hours of homework. (makes it hard to have any family time) The teachers have not been very welcoming to questions or suggestions from a parent. However, the administration is very gracious and respectful, and better to communicate with than most of the teachers.

We are having our child transfer out to another school mid-year. If you have an average or above student, they will probably do fine. It is not an encouraging environment for kids w/any struggles. Our child's self-esteem went down hill being in this environment in only 2 months we were there. The approved Modification never happened. Be a voice for your child!

If your student is not the typical Grandville computer genius, he/she will have a very hard time here. They do everything online, with only online help. Every student has a chrome book but they are not instructed how to use it. (Most just know because they have been using computers since toddlerhood). All assignments, tests and communication are through google docs. Who needs teachers? Keep your kids home, or send them to a different school.

My son's first week in middle was hard. New challenges included finding his classroom, lockers, remembering its combination, making new friends and meeting new teachers . The second week he was so happy that teachers and even eighth graders had helped him. Everyone in the office was polite and helpful.

A bit impersonal due to how large the student body is. It's hard to get to know teachers but overall I'm very happy with this school. Teachers we've had are all well versed in thier subjects and seem to really enjoy teaching. Great parent organization.

There are some awesome teachers there who see that my son is a hard worker despite his dyslexia. They have worked with him and have allowed him extra time to take assignments home to work on them.

Elementary schools WERE fantastic, but with new 'consistent curriculum' the hands of all gifted teachers have been tied. Very few advanced courses to prepare for High School. Keep looking- East Grand Rapids, Forrest Hills, GR City Middle High are far better choices. Just watch out for administrative changes, districts can change very quickly.

The Middle School has a very strong parent organization, strong staff to parent communication venue - including the Infinite Campus Parent Portal where parents can log in over the internet, view grades, comments, missing assignments, email teachers, etc. Written progress reports, monthly newsletters are mailed to all parents; councelors are always available to help students in need - all they have to do is ask. Teachers also notify admin staff of potential at risk students and are continually receiving training and directives on noticing students who may be having peer, parent or other problems. In the past year, student and parent surveys have been returned and multiple steps to make improvements have been implemented. Site improvements have also made the building more inviting and nurturing for the kids.

Elementary schools are fantastic, but things change drastically at the middle level. Kids become a small pebble in a big ocean. Staff do not notice students and do not inform parents. There are a great deal of opportunities for students available, but there is no working with those who are not highly motivated. Great potential in the school, but majority of the staff are not motivated to work with students and parents. Very impersonal.
