Grand Forks Public Schools Reviews

There is the individual support to every student in need, provided through the employment of paraprofessionals. Guidance counselors are there to support, give advice and go that extra mile for you.
If I was to change anything, it would be the versatility of schools. I think students and parents would be interested in academically or musicaly inclined schools.

Grand Forks Public Schools are great learning environments that encourage the growth of children's education and citizenship. GFPS offers top notch education and endless opportunities. As a students involved in the arts, multiple clubs, and sports, GFPS has supported my groups and made the experience enjoyable. GFPS is phenomenal at offering advanced classes to challenge students ready for the next level of education. Their AP and Dual Credit classes really help prepare their students for their future colleges and schooling. While there are many great things happening in GFPS, there are some things that they need to work on. The funding for our music programs is constantly being cut, at the expense of the students musical growth. Increasing the music departments funds would greatly improve the music program and experience. Overall, GFPS has done a great job, and I have been extremely satisfied with my time as a student in their district.
I have been with the Grand Forks Public School District for six years(6-12). I believe that every teacher and staff member are there to educate the students. They teach us that learning is the number one priority when going to school but, they also teach us to have integrity, courage, trustworthiness, respect, and responsibility. I have not only learned academic things but things that made me a better person, because I went to Grand Forks Public Schools. With these skills that I have learned from their schools, I will carry them with me; throughout my entire life.
