My daughter attended JW Grier Academy from K-5, she graduated in 2014. Starting with kindergarten the school staff were very nurturing and ensuring us of the safety of our kids was first; this was not just implied but practiced. We only had two years of the previous principal Mrs BrandnFellan and I heard and experienced good leadership with her time there. Most of the years we were under the tutelage of principal Ms.Townsend. Ms. Townsend is a down to earth, tight ship running, takes challenges head on, academics first, no nonsense leader and loving principal. This principal has immersed herself into this school along with a top notch staff and teachers. I believe JW Grier Academy has played a great role in my daughters early years with a clear path to succeed in all she does!

I was visiting from NJ in December. My granddaughter Aniyah Falconi-Giles is in Mrs. K kindergarden class. I attended the Winter concert. What a treat, afterwards Aniyah and I went shopping in the school boutique. I told Mrs. K, I would donate lanyards to her class for the students ID's. I will be receiving them sometime this week. Please give her this message.

I have been very pleased with Joseph W. Grier. I was extremely nervous at first; bringing my child from a private school into CMS. JWG has made this transition very easy for me and my son. They encourage parent participation and have an open door policy which I love. I visit my son's class when at all possible and his teacher is very welcoming. Also she shows great interest in his academics. Thanks Ms. Smith! (kindergarten)

My child has been at Joseph Grier for three years. He has been in Mrs. Stanley class every year. She has moved up with him from kindergarten to second grade and has really been an excellent teacher. I am told that the principal is one of the best in the CMS system. My experience at Joseph Grier has been a good one.

My children are thriving at Grier. There is a comfortable atmosphere and the teachers are extremely dedicated to their students and each other. There is a strong push for extracurricular activities--in fact, every student is a member of a club of their choosing. The Talent Development program is well run and the media center is phenomenal.
