Grand Forks Public Schools Reviews

My experience in the GFPS district has been pretty good. We have issues here and there, but for the most part it is a great place to learn. It’s a very friendly community and the staff are always willing to help you succeed. Teachers are typically amazing, even though you of course have a bad apple every once in a while. The GFPS system has been very good for me, and I’ve made long lasting friendships with peers and teachers. The schools also very much support going to college, and there are tons of opportunities available to learn more about any given college or financial aid. For example, the teachers all have green signs on their doors that state which college(s) they attended. The flyer encourages students to talk to teachers about their experiences.

I've attended elementary, middle, and high school at Grand Forks Public Schools and I've had a great time with teachers, academics, and resources and safety are amazing! Great place to go to school, though most of the year is cold.
I have attended Grand Forks Public Schools my entire schooling career. From preschool to highschool, I have been in Grand Forks. My only problem I encountered was during high school, and that was the dress code was sometimes unfair. Other than that the teachers and administration were very helpful.
