2 out of 10 i feel that Grant elementry school is 2 out of 10 because well it does not have separet class rooms and kids can not concrete because of the other kids being loud. There is always problems in the cafeteria i dont know what is going on but it is bad. and kids are always getting sick because they have to wait outside of the school for 30-40 mins every morning. that is why i give it a 2
My daughter attended Grant Elementary for 2 years and my son for 1. I was really impressed by the caring nature of the staff. Both of my children improved their social skills and their grades improved as well. The principal Mrs. Ramsay is very approachable and knows all her students by name. I am very sad to have to leave the Lakewood area, but if I am able to return I would send my children back to Grant without hesitation.
Even though Lakewood is voting to close this school by 2013, My step-son attends all day Kindergarten and is doing great. Lakewood needs to keep this Elementary open for the central downtown children, due to it's location and not just look at the resale value of the land, with so many other commercial properties already sitting unoccupied.
This is an excellent school, in my opinion. I have two children, so far, that go to Grant, and the teachers are always ready to answer any questions, and help the children with any problems they are having. The teachers keep the parents notified of any problems they see, and listen to the parents concerns.
