This school has been wonderful. My son is a sophomore this year and we couldn't be happier. The teachers have been great, engaging, interested in my child's long-term success in life in general, as well as the here and now in h.s.. BEAUTIFUL facilities and technology. The cafeteria is excellent here, I should add, as that was my complaint with the JHS. :) There is great community spirit here and it shows.

My siblings go to graham high school, and I think it is one of the best schools in Texas. My brother is in tennis and he and his team are winning more than they ever have. This is a great school and if you want to give your children education, variety of extracurricular activities, and a level of involvement that tops the best then enroll them in Graham High School.

Graham High School has a good, solid academic program with prepares students for college. Classes for college credit are offered. The academic counseling is strong. There is a good extracurricular program with a large band, choir, most sports for boys and girls. There is a large community support and many college scholarships available. There is a local college campus that offers classes from several area colleges. The high school is currently a Recognized campus. The facilities are adequate, but aging. The overall educational quality, however, is very good.
