It saddens me to see negative reviews from others that don't point a school and/or any specific problems but are generally unhappy with a district based on other personal criteria gathered from non first hand experience. This school is very good, all the kids I do see excel. Teacher involvement and activities show that they care about the kids growth and well being. I have no problem with having my 2 boys attend this school at all. next year my kids will be in 1st and 3rd grade. The high school is new and we had the teacher of the year from our district.
Both of my children have attended the GFSD for their entire school. This is one of the best district's in the state. Look at all of the award winning programs such as the multiage program! Also, they have award winning teachers and administrators...where else do you find that? Add to that that the Teacher of the Year for 2007, Andrea Peterson, is the music specialist at MCE. Go check out the schools...great things happen in Granite Falls.
