Grady Middle School5

Grady is a great middle school. It's a relatively small middle school for the Houston area with inspiring teachers who care about their students. I have one child who has attended Grady for the past two years and we are looking forward to one more year. The coaches, teachers and staff take a genuine interest in the students and it has been a pleasure to watch our child excel academically, as well as enjoy all of the extra-curricular activities offered by Grady. This school is truly a jewel in HISD's crown.
I have one child at Grady, one about to go and one who is in high school after attending Grady. My high school student was very well-prepared after attending Grady. We continue to be pleased with the smaller size, beautiful (new) facility and excellent faculty and administration. The teachers genuinely care about the students and are able to reach that hard middle-school age with both humor and empathy. The students are encouraged to participate in all kinds of extra-curricular activities including incredible drama, band and art programs and a great athletic program as well.
I have had two children at Grady. My oldest child is now in high school and was definitely prepared for the challenge. The teachers take an interest in the student and care not just about test scores but about the whole child. Grady has a wonderful arts program - art, band and theater. Its sports program allows all students to be involved. I highly recommend!
I've been at Grady for 3 years (6-8) and I love it. Grady has a great mix of students and with its small size it's easy to make friends. It has offered many different extracurricular activities to me, and I've participated in sports, Student Council, Yearbook staff, and National Junior Honor society. The acedemics are great, and I've learned so much here.
I say Grady is an excellent school for my child. She has been given a great opportunity to join many extra curricular activities. Such as choir, pre algebra, yoga, drama, Spanish, art, and more! Grady is an excellent school to be in, with great teachers and great oppurtunities. I hope that even more students will go there, and see that it is one of the most excellent schools ever!
