We recently moved to Ohio from out of state and I used Great Schools extensively to research the school options for my children. I decided on Grizzell Middle School for my 8th grade student, and we are absolutely thrilled with the school! The teachers and administrators are so passionate about their jobs and so energized and committed to student learning, all without putting undue pressure on the students. There is lots of support available if a student needs it and there is lots of individual attention. All the 8th grade students go to Washington D.C., which is a great experience. My daughter is having her best school year ever! Also, the kids are very nice and polite. 8th grade can be a tough time to start a new school, but the students have made her feel very welcome and included. There are no cliques or bullying to speak of. We love Grizzell!

Grizzell is fantastic. We've got the best band, choir, orchestra, and sports teams around! And on top of that, we were announced the only school in Ohio that won the Blue Ribbon Award! And with truly amazing teachers, I couldn't imagine going anywhere else.

Excellent school. I attend now, and our teaching staff is great! The level of discipline is very high, and there are many programs against bullying, drugs, and the such.

OMG!!! This school is beyond perfect!!! I attended 6th and 7th grade there but had to move before 8th. Let me just say, you do not know how good you have it at that school. My new school is apparently the 'best in the county', but if you ask me, it is the worst middle school in the world. Grizzell has wonderful teachers with wonderful teaching methods. The technology is very up to date and used often, unlike my new school. Also, the sports are wonderful. Discipline is not an issue ether like it is at my new school. Kids hardly ever get suspended or caught doing other horrible things like they do at my new middle school. Let's just say I've only known two people who hated this school and they had serious problems. You would have to be a completly retarded weirdo not to like this school.

This is an amazing school for all kids. If your kids don't like it, they will not like any middle school.

Willard Grizzell Middle school is so amazing that I can't even explain it, especially because they won the Ohio Schools to Watch Award and Schools to watch Award this year! As you can tell, Grizzell is one the best schools to enroll your child in because it excels in both academics and social activities! The teachers also are absolutely sweet!

Grizzell Middle School is an excellent school (as are all the schools in the Dublin, Ohio School District). We have lived in the area for 19 years and the quality of the schools was one of the major factors for us choosing this area to live. We have had 2 children (one currently) attend this school and give it high marks in all categories. The staff is courteous, attentive and professional in dealing with the needs of all the children, not just those who naturally excel in academics. Dublin Schools also provide a first class education for children with special needs issues.

Grizzell Middle School is the best middle school ever! We have the best academic standards around and awesom teachers. We offer many clubs and an extensive list of available sports. The school, kids, and staff are very inviting. GO GMS!

I attended this school for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. It is a complete mess. I am now in 9th grade and I am extremely happy to finally be out of this joke of a school. The food is disgusting, the staff is rude, power-hungry, and arrogant, and they simply cannot teach well, however they have great sports because that is absolutely the main focus of the school. The equipment is very outdated, too. Many of the computers are over 10 years old and don't even work! There is a sickening musty smell throughout the whole building, and they haven't replaced the carpets since the school was built. Overall this is a simply horrendous environment for any child to learn in. Parents, if you have any choice, do NOT enroll your children here.
