Recently, we received the report card for our first grader. In the report card, we saw that she received a satisfactory in math. When we reached out to her teacher via email, she was very receptive and told us exactly what we needed to work on with our daughter to bring her level of understanding to the next level. I was so pleased with the teacher's response and willingness to help. Made us feel great about Grange Hall and the educational program.

We've had a great experience with Grange Hall. The teachers and staff really know the students and there is a strong sense of community at the school!

We moved to the area from Raleigh, NC a few months ago. We have found our daughter's teachers to be excellent and feel they truly care about her. In addition, there seems to be a strong sense of community at Grange Hall and a sense of pride among teachers, students and parents. We would recommend Grange to anyone who is considering the area. The principal made it a point to get to know our daughter and has called her by her name in the hallway a number of times.

My family loves this school and will be sad to move away from it this year. I've had 4 kids go through this school over the past 6 years. The teachers are motivated and caring, the administration makes an effort to get to know each family, and the students continually do well in testing. It will be hard to find another school as good as this one!

My Son is in Second grade and has attended this school since kindergarten. The school had been great and I have seen my son go from a kid that was lagging behind as a kindergartner to a second grader that is ahead of where most second graders are. I am impressed and thankful my son attends Grange Hall.

They have a loving, caring, supportive teaching and administrative faculty. The principal knows each child by name and there is a stong sense of community. This is a safe place where the kids feel a sense of belonging to something good.

Grange Hall elementary is an awesome school full of teachers, parents and a school principal dedicated to providing students with a stimulating and engaging education. Mrs. Sefrin has spent her career in elementary education and loves everyone of 'her kids' as he calls them. She has assembled teachers with outstanding teaching methods. The relationship between our PTA and administration provides an environment for parents to become part of our schools' success. Go Bulldogs!

Grange Hall has the best staff and faculty. Grange Hall is a 'Blue Ribbon' school. Both of my kids have attended GH and I would not want them at any other school.

The Grange Hall Community is like a family. I believe it feels that way because the principal and assistant principal are VERY involved in each child's academic progress. The teachers are wonderful. Every year my children and I say 'Oh we are going to miss so and so next year' and while that be true wouldn't you know the next year they get another teacher JUST as fantastic! We are blessed.

Excellent principle and assistant principle, wonderful teachers, parents, and students. I went to the local library one Saturday to get some books for my children. The principal was there tutoring some students in 3rd grade that were struggling through long division. I was so impressed that she was there on her own time helping those students. Post cards are sent home to students when a job is well done and even personal messages are written on report cards. I couldn't have asked for a better school for my children to be a part of!
