This school is wonderful.... private school atmosphere in a public school. Very accepting of new kids (1st grader and 9th grader), not as cliquish as our last school, LOTS of parental involvement, high level of education and exceptional extracurricular activities for a school this size!

This is a really great school. My children went to GISD for two years, and durning that short while they were not only made a part of the community, but they were made a part of the school, and have developed lifelong friendships.

Granger school is one of the last vestiges of an era that is too soon becoming lost in this country. It has great hometown values and a wonderful tradition which stretches many, many years back in time. Even though it may not have all of the technological, etc. advantages of more elite schools, the students who have passed through its doors have been most blessed.

I find lack of extacurricular activities,the students haven't exaclty been taught to the extent that they can be, the students at Granger could be a bit more involved in more school activities besides athletics, they deserve to have fun while they are learning, Granger lacks the different culture and ethnic backgrounds which makes it a bit odd.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.
