Grand Forks Public Schools Reviews

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.
Review Grand Forks Public Schools
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.
When I tell people I go to high school in North Dakota, I often get the same response. People politely say "Oh that's cool," but I know they are actually thinking "Snow and hillbillies, must be fun." What they don't know is that we are so much more than our location. Our staff and students constantly put in a tremendous effort so that we can be the best school we can be. As a senior, I look back on the amazing experience I have had and I feel blessed to have been a part of such a great community. In the last year I got to go to our dodgeball tournament, watch Rider Idol, see our hockey team win state undefeated, watch amazing pep rallies, work a food drive, and dress up in over ten theme days. We may just be a small school in a Midwest town, but Red River knows how to do high school right.
