Grady Middle School 5

I went to Grady Middle School for three years and had some of the best years of my life that I know I will never forget. I always wish that Grady had been a school that went from 6th grade all the way to 12th grade! Grady has so many different activities and fun things that you can do during and after school... Personally I was and still am a theatre kid and the theatre program at Grady is one if the many things that I am thankful to Grady for. Another thing that I could not imagine going to that school with out are the teachers and staff! I had the best time with all of my teachers and coaches and deans! They all are always there for you and I still go and visit them and call them for advice! (My mom and my math teacher are now best friends!) Not to mention that they are in the process and are so close to finishing a whole new school! If Grady is still around when I have a family and kids... That's where you'll see my kids getting the best education I could ever ask for!

If you love your children don't go to this school. This school is really bad! One of my teachers lets us watch cartoons and pretend we are working instead of practicing for STAAR test. All the buildings are made of wood and they are really dirty and old. Another teacher doesn't care about you and if you don't understand something he won't explain to you! He also has a really messy classroom! Also a teacher tells us to study something and puts something different in the test!! I have experienced all those conflicts so believe me don't let your child go there!!

The student body has quite a bit of kids that are rude, rough and apparently allowed to do whatever it is they please away from school. If you don't mind having your child exposed to all that crude behavior then fine.

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!

Grady Middle School is very small but that is good because you can be the star at any sport. The teachers are very nice and smart. Grady is an I.B. School.

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.

My daughter attends Grady and I must say she does enjoy the school and as a parent I do too. The Principal and the Staff are wonderful.
