My grandson attends Grove City High School. He was on the football team, attended every practice, worked hard, and never was given the opportunity to play 1 minute of any game. How can any school allow such treatment of any student? How does this inspire students to work hard, or improve their self esteem, or promote team spirit? It certainly does not reward hard work, dedication, and sacrifice. What is this school's mission statement? In my opinion every athlete should be given the opportunity to play, especially their senior year. I feel sorry for any other young men hoping that hard work and dedication will be rewarded with fair and equal treatment. And for the parents, and grandparents (who traveled 150 miles) who attend every game waiting to see their athlete take the field, if only for a few minutes, this was crushing. My grandson's Grove City High School football memories will forever be a lesson in how NOT to treat anyone. I certainly hope the football coach never has the opportunity to treat another young man with such disrespect. If you're thinking of sending your student to Grove City for their athletic development, my advice is "Don't"!!!
My daughter has taken advantage of the academic opportunities presented to her at GCHS. These include but are not limited to the 9 AP classes she has completed successfully. The rigor has given her the opportunity to be admitted to The Ohio State University on an academic scholarship :-). Thank you SWCS, Buckeye Woods, Park Street Intermediate,Jackson Middle School and GCHS teachers for their time, effort and decication providing the educational growth opportunities to her over the years. Thanks!!
I feel the schools are great - good quality teachers and good parent interaction. Children have always had support of the community in all the years I have been in GC - great growing community with a lot of ammenities for children to grow and thrive.
Grove City High School is a wonderful school, dedicated staff, and the community keeps voting against school levies, which is eradicating their sports teams for students....which the students really deserve! A wonderful school, in an area where more people are elderly and not inclined to vote for school levies because they are more worried about taxes than the kids! I don't even have a child myself, am a Grove City resident, and I care about the schools!!
The thing I like most about grove city is the history. I like the fact that it's been around for awhile, its had plenty of time to establish terrific extracurricular activities, some of which other schools don't have. However I do admit that the disciplinary actions could use some work. Other than that I think its a great school.
