I've visited this school many times as the significant other of one of the teachers. I completely agree that this school is run like a tight ship, but the kids that it produces are some of the best in the county. If you want an administration that doesn't care about the actions of students, go somewhere else. Grandview is full of hands-on administrators and teachers who truly care about the attitudes, manners, and educations that the students are receiving. When I have children, Grandview and Dr. Howerton are the exact experience I want my kids to have.

This school is run very tight - silent halls, ISS for incomplete homework, or missing a problem and "double ISS or Afterschool time" if the principal just happents to see a student in silent lunch. There is big trouble for the most minor of offenses. Great place for students facing behavior issues and overachievers with 0 problems but, a nervous or shy student or those who mess up sometimes would struggle.

I have been consistently impressed with every level of faculty, from the principal to the bus driver. The atmosphere and attitude among the staff is very positive and child-centered. My child has been afforded many opportunities through the AG classes, music and athletics, and she has been encouraged and nurtured at every turn. Could not ask for a better experience.

Grandview is a wonderful place to work. Dr. Howerton provides an atmosphere that is structured, guiding, and caring. Students and teachers are very blessed to be at Grandview.

The school is run like a dictatorship. I would not advise sending my child there.

Dr. Vanessa Howerton sets the tone for Grandview School, and with her leadership it is an incredible place for middle schoolers to learn and grow up! The teachers are very engaged with the students, the facility is immaculate and the kids are well-behaved and well-managed.
