After interviewing several private and public schools, we made the decision to send our child to Grahamwood and never looked back. The academic enrichment program is excellent, the extra curricular chess club is 2005 State Champion, and the Gifted and Talented(CLUE)program is the best in the state. The leadership of the school is excellent and on any given day you will find at least 20 parents somewhere in the school building helping tutor, assist teachers or the library. The school welcomes parental involvement with open arms. This should make any new parent much more comfortable in starting off a first grader into the 'real world'. It is an diverse, multicultural school and has its own privately funded fine arts curriculum for all students attending Grahamwood. In addition, Federal Express is our corporate sponsor and gives generously. Grahawood is rated top Elementary School by Memphis Parent Magazine for 2004.
My daughter just completed sixth grade out of the optional program in Grahamwood. She had a wonderful six year period here -- the teachers are outstanding, the CLUE program is fantastic, the two principals she had during the period were excellent, and above all the PTA involvement has to be seen to be beleived. The school has an excellent chess program as well.
