This my oldest Daughter's fifth year attending GAB. We love the environment and the staff. The Teacher's are wonderful and the Principal's are amazing! The afterschool program is perfect! Proud to be a Cougar!

My daughter had a great kindergarten experience and first grade is off to a good start. The communications between leadership/teachers and parents are excellent. I am very impressed with how they respond swiftly to children's needs. I am most impressed by the character building atmosphere that is fostered at GAB - it is priceless. Julie T. (parent)

My fifth grader just graduated and I am sad that he will be moving on. Thankfully I have another child still attending Grady Brown. My children have excelled there. What a great group of teachers, staff, parent group and overall community.

We have attended GAB for the past 6 years. It is a fantastic school with fabulous leadership and a wonderfully supportive community. Each year gets better. We will be sad to move on to middle school!

It is clear that the teacher truly care about their students. The communication is good, the expectations are high, and the administration is very efficient.

As a new parent to the school, I am very disappointed with the level of learning that is taking place. My child transferred from another public school and is bored. The teacher and principal have not met my requests for supplemental work. My child finishes before everyone else and is forced to sit there with nothing to do. His teacher labeled him a 'bit of a pest' because he keeps asking for things to do. I am very disappointed!

I have every confidence in the leadership, faculty, and staff at GAB. My children love their school! From the moment they step out of the car, they are greeted with a smile, followed by a cup of warmth;-} When you enter the school, you can just feel the excitement of learning new things in the atmosphere. From the principal, to the staff, to the children, it just exudes happiness and comfort. Even the custodians greet you in a positive manner. I truly love walking into GAB just for the spirited lift!! Go Cougars!!!!

To quote B.A. 'It's all good!' This is the end of my fourth year at Grady Brown and I feel blessed to be there! GAB has an outstanding staff and amazing teachers. Can't wait to have my second child enter Kindergarten next year. Grady Brown....is in a category of it's own.

We LOVE Grady Brown so much that when we were looking for land on which to build our home, we only searched for land within the Grady Brown school district. The teachers are awesome; they are always willing to talk with you about your child's needs. We've been impressed with the education that our sons are receiving -- academically, as well as with the music, art, physical education and Spanish classes. And our children are involved in extracurricular activities as well: Battle of the Books, Geography Bee, Chess Club. We've had a child at Grady Brown for 6 years now, and every year has been wonderful. Not one bad experience in 6 years? Now, that has to be a record!

I moved my daughter from a private school to Grady Brown in the middle of 3rd grade. The excellent faculty and staff made my daughter and family feel welcome and she has had great academic success there. Very supportive and responsive school environment.

We are very pleased with the quality of teaching at Grady A. Brown Elementary school. Educational programming both in the regular classes and for special programming (music, reading, computer lab, media center, gym) is excellent. The Afterschool staff are outstanding! Staff needs to know what an excellent job they are doing!
