Grant has an amazing PTA. The principal is very efficient and I swear knows every child by name! Parent involvement is also great. My son especially enjoys the music class each week.
My children have been attending Grant for 3+ years. I absolutely love "our" school. As a parent it is easy to feel part of the community. The staff and parent organization at Grant is very welcoming and provides many extra activities for the students. I have experienced different concerns/struggles over the years regarding my children and I have always felt comfortable discussing these concerns with all their teachers and the principal at Grant. They are kind and informative and have always helped "us" reach a positive resolution to our issue. I feel very fortunate to have my children attend such a wonderful school.
Great School and Great Teacher (Mrs. Ort)! Really turned my Kindergartner around. We had a terrible experience at Cleveland with the Principal and a Teacher. My Son was having trouble in school and would cry when we took him to school. Now, he really enjoys school again. We are so thankful for all that Grant Elementary has done for our child!
My son had a very hard time adjusting to Kindergarten. Behavior-wise, his first month was very rough. The staff at Grant were spectacularly kind, concerned and communicative with me and my husband. Our son is now thriving. The principal runs a very tight ship; she seems to be very aware of what goes on in the building and she knows every child's name! I believe she genuinely does care for the children and that attitude trickles down to all the staff. They are kind, dedicated, caring people. The school also has a highly active PTA. Additionally, there are opportunities to volunteer in the classroom. I love that I get to see my son's teacher and peers go about their daily work.
Our Family really loves this school. We have two boys one is in 4th grade the other in 1st. When I was looking for a school when my first child was born I came to this site to help me try to get a good school for him. Now that he is moving into 5th which will be another school I am back here again. This school is very, very good. I would recommend this school to friends and family without a second thought. I am really sad to send my oldest elsewhere. I am very proud to be a "Gator" My kids love this school it was a great choice. You have to remember that you can not please everyone every time with every situation. I do love the music teacher he is superior! I love that the make sure to have all electives in this school i.e. gym, music,art etc...I believe it is very important for my children. The after school care is wonderful as well.
What is a school for an early age? A place were little kids got attracted to, the main purpose is to make them like to learn, a one step ahead after the preschoolers. Unfortunate, this doesn't exist in this school, they are doing their job as the law required. In other hand, the school is clean, staff is friendly. The build up and placement is excellent. What they need is motivation and the well to improve, be the best! Hard work and keen to their sole of teaching is the key, I hope they listen and learn something before they deliver the message to our future of the next generation. I don't want to see messages on empty bottles flowing around, determined kids with bright future make their family proud. If you are looking just to get paid at the end of the week, find you another job and make space to those who want to deliver the message.
My sons are attending this school, i think this school is very boring, teachers and staff are average, and the math program is absolutely terrible......
In a year of change in Livonia schools, the staff at Grant have been kind, helpful and compassionate.
My daughter just transferred to Grant in the beginning of May. I would like to thank the teachers and staff for making this transition so easy for her. You have all been so wonderful, and have made us feel as if we had been here the whole year. In such a troubling time for us, I again thank you and appreciate the support! Everyone is fantastic!
The safety of our children was not a priority at this school. On more than one occasion, kids were lost. Kindergartners and 1st graders were allowed to get on the wrong busses.
My Daughter is going into second grade at Grant. She has excelled in all academics, already reading at a 3rd grade level. Over the past two years (Kindergarten, 1st grade) she has grown confident of herself and her abilities. Grant teachers are excellent!! I also want to share another great concern that we as parents should be thankful for. We have an excellent leader (our principal). I believe that she makes the safety of the children her first priority. In todays world, you can never be to careful. Thanks to all the grant staff.
I agree with the Nov 2005 posting. Principal decisions rule and they are not always in the best interest of the student. My child tells me daily they are bored and do nothing fun in class. But when they look across the hall, the other class is up and moving around and having fun. And homework is nil for both of these classes. But when you check with parents in other classrooms their children have homework daily. I d say these teachers are doing the minimum to get by.
Unfortunately we are still waiting to see what is so great about Livonia schools. Teacher opinion and principal decisions are what rules the roost in this school. You will have to fight for your kids over and over again.
My daughter is in first grade and excelling in school. The teachers are warm, loving, and experts at what they do. The art teacher is amazing, come check out our art fair in the spring! I look forward to the next 5 years we have at Grant. Great staff, great community, great kids!
I've had students at Grant for 8 years now. All of my children have had a spectacular experience. Further as they've headed off to middle school they've made the transition smoothly and have been very well prepared. The Grant staff is the best!
My 11 yr old is going into his 7th yr at Grant and he loves the school. We also have twins starting kindergarten this year, Grant is a great school with a wonderful staff.
