Grafton School District Reviews
While the academics are progressing, the school does not provide enough resources for students as far as planning for college or steps after high school. Meeting with counselors to discuss these next steps should occur more than every other year, and the planning we do in home room should not be the same thing year after year. Students need more guidance and should be given more opportunities to learn about careers and their options after high school- i.e. College/Career event during school day. These opportunities and experiences are quintessential to producing students who feel ready when they go into the world, rather than feeling as though they have no idea what is next. Furthermore, in my opinion, safety is not considered to the extent that it should be. In the 2019-2020 school year there were several threats to our safety, including gun threats, yet they were not addressed to the students until the end of the day, leaving us anxious and unable to focus on our education.
I am incredibly proud to have been educated in Grafton School District. GSD has provided me with lifelong friendships, unforgettable memories, and a dependable education that has already served me well in my college application process. The biggest challenge I had to my learning was the recent referendum, which now is more of a benefit than anything else. Grafton School District is equipped with everything, including the staff, to make kids wake up and WANT to go to school in the morning.
Open to the community. Only issue has been with finances. Some beloved community teachers from both the middle school and high school have recently been fired or laid off, much to students' disapproval.
