The ONLY way this school could improve is to shut it down and start over. There is NO accountability any where in the building. All positive rewards no longer exists. Most if not all parents are not welcome past the office. After (the male principal) left it ALL went downhill. Only wish we could change schools.
My daughter loves going to school every day at grant. It is an excellent place to have your children! They have after school activities like volleyball,drummers and dancers,and homework center. My girl has made many friends there and I personally have not had a problem with any of the teachers or staff. I really recommend sending kids to school there. I guaranty they'll love it there!
Grant is a school where education is valued! The staff work hard and the parent involvement is great. It is a unique school, true to the culture of the neighborhood.
Bad....School is not in a good neighborhood...KIds are rude and are allowed to get out of hand. There were many fights and kids regularly curse at the teachers and have no respect for authority. Teachers are afraid to stand up and kids learn well below their grade level...they are not challenged and parents rarely get involved. So glad I took my kids out of that school.
Excellent school!!! (The admin can be rude or look disinterested) but the atmosphere is very warm and happy like an elementary school should be. The teachers? They seem to cater to the exact need of each child individually, and they genuinely care about their students and their success. (I have seen this not just with my child, but all her classmates as well!) I have never had a bad experience here, the teachers are superb! Truly, tremendous environment.
Grant is an excellent school! The teachers are awesome and I simply have never had a bad experience working with any of the staff. My daughter loves the school, loves her teachers, and loves going to school every day!
Grant is a great place to have your children! Great teachers, afterschool sports available, homework center, choir, Drummers and Dancers club. The principal works well with parents, students, and staff. Mentoring program too.
Great school- admn dedicated to student acheivement, teachers caring and qualified. Safe and studious.
Grant has a positive and challenging program. The staff is well trained and keeps updated constantly on new academic material and ideas. The PE, music and art programs are a big plus. Outside mentoring program for at risk youth and very good parent involvement.
I see a lack of parent involvement. Lack of communication. Not enough superpervision. Principal doesn't seem to follow up on parents concerns. I have been lucky with the teachers, Ms.Byrne is the best!
I think the teachers do a great job. I beleive more parent envolment is needed, after all the children are our responisiblity. The teachers are not there to raise them for us. We want results, let's get in there and help it happen.
Lack of communication in the office. Lack of supervision on the playground. Teachers have the attitude of working for the money, not the children.
