First of all, All Mount Vernon teachers are working very hard to meet the demands to teach our kids so they can succeed. We can make a difference Parents, don't give up! Grimes school is located on the "right" side, when you walk into Grimes whether its in the morning or late afternoon there is always someone there to greet you! Also you will noticed cultural unique pieces of art, painting, and pictures of our students. The school is full of positive images of leaders, activist, artists, poets and more ... this helps students see themselves and imagine the possibilities! I always good when I'm there! Everybody knows everybody !...Grimes is place of community, diversity...the foundation in which it stands on ...pride, principles, integrity, respect, and compassion. Thank you Grimes and thank you students for not given up!

Leadership is not lacking since administration highlights positive and inspires through 1) actions or 2) words. Attention is directed toward achieving State standards. effective leadership has resulted in principal and teachers working together to help students achieve.more parent involvement is greatly needed which will in turn creates more students achieving.yes behavior is poor and in need of help from our parents.
