Grant Middle School has SO much potential!! The teachers are excellent; they go well beyond what is expected from them to work with each child and their individual needs. The principal, Mr. DeSantis, is extremely attentive to the students, their parents, and other staff in the school. Grant has gained *unfavorable* reviews due to their performance and the results of students' test scores... However, it is very difficult for the school to work up to a certain level when most students do not speak English clearly and cannot communicate effectively. By learning the history of the Northside, one would understand why it is so difficult to get that *excellent* school rating. The Northside is poverty-stricken and over-populated by refugees from various countires (i.e. within Africa, Asia, Haiti, Indus, Middle East, etc). How does a school work with such population when most of these children were living in refugee camps for months/years without ANY educational OR home structure?? Remember: It takes a village to raise a child. Grant Middle School needs students and parents to be actively involved in their own success, as well!!!

I am giving Grant Middle School a rating of 4 stars because the faculty has tried extensively to get on these children's level, and even went as far as enforcing a dress code/uniform policy. Unfortunately, the students refuse to adhere to the policy - and their parents are not making matters any better. The first week of school children are told they must be in uniform (any color polo and khaki/navy/black trousers) by the following week, or they will be sent home. Of course, a large amount of students show up in street clothes and it makes it impossible for the faculty to make it a punishable violation - as majority of the school will be sent home!!! We are a community and we need more actively involved parents to set a prime example for these children!!!!

This school is a HORRIBLE place to end up. If your child ends up here I would suggest you get them transferd. The sudents are rude, the teachers are unqualified,except a small handful. And the principle is NOT involved with students parents at all. 0/5

I spoke with Principle Desantis yesterday, about the kids walking down the middle of Kirkpatrick St., after school. When school let out, Principle Desantis was on Kirkpatrick St., making sure they stayed on the sidewalk. That you so much, Principle Desantis. My rating is for Principle Desantis's quick response, understanding and involvement. 5 STARS.

I am thinking of sending my child to this school. Does anyone know if the school is safe? Is there anything I should know about before I send my 6th grader to the school? Please help!

the schools ok,but its very underrated.the students bring it down,but when you get to go their you will be attached to it and will not want to leave.i didn't like the school at first,but it started to grow on me.the teachers do need to harden up(in other words give more homework and stop treating 7th graders like 5th graders).other then that its a great school.the principle is ok too,but its just the students that bring it down

no rating

I am a 8th grade student and I really dont have much nice to say about grant. i'm glad i'm not gonna be there next year. i had a couple nice teachers that stayed after and helped me but alot are mean to eachother. the principal isnt good and doesnt listen to teachers or kids.

Mr.Wolfe is a great and much needed asset to grant! He is outside interacting with the kids, patting them on the back. There are some very caring and dedicated teachers as well, mr. Maxwell, mr. Fiello, mrs. Victoriano. With parental support,these teachers definitely do their part.
