  • Cole should go back to teaching 2nd grade kids, not administrating high school students. The entire staff suffer from incredibly large heads.

  • grant high is the worst school I have been to. I am a Sr. I have moved several times and have been to 5 different high schools. grant high is the worst. I am the type of student who enjoys going to school and learning. the students at grant are allowed to do as they please. I have seen students walk over teachers like it was nothing. grant allows teens to have 0 respect. Before I moved her I wanted to become a teacher. now I'm not so sure. Grant high has some amazing teachers! They will help you learn as long as you TRY! The disciplinary obviously doesn't know how to correct the students. when procedures are done its to the minor acts. the overall things are looked over. Grants "further" has no respect for anyone or anything.

  • I graduated from Grant High School in 2003. I made straight As. When I went to college, I was amazed at how much I did not know as compared to others who graduated from other schools. Grant High School is a fun school with a lot of caring teachers, and I understand that if it was any more difficult, the drop out rate would probably skyrocket. Regardless, some people who go to school there actually want to go to college and should be provided with some upper level courses so they can be prepared for the real world. I feel I was not prepared for any higher education and hope that the school will increase its academic standards.

  • Grant High is possibly the worst school for teenagers to go to. I moved to Louisiana when I was a junior. Texas's ninth grade courses are Grant High's eleventh grade courses. Grant High should not even be considered a school. Most of the students either drop out and go to work or they barely pass. Some of the teachers there are very good, but most of them are gym teachers because Grant is under staffed. No one wants to work there. If they would hire better teachers, I think Grant would be a better school.
