Posted August 25, 2003

My daughter once attended this school and it greatly enriched her opportunities for attending a quality university. Grapevine is a great place to grow up and the school greatly reflected that. She was very involved in and out of school and deeply supported by us and the school staff.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted June 13, 2003

Our daughter just completed her first year at Grapevine High School, also her first year at any public school. The teachers she had (most with advanced degrees) were all extremely professional and highly competent. We felt she was definitely challenged with the AP classes offered at Grapevine, and found most of the instructors to be very helpful.
