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.
I have been apart of the Grand Forks Public Schools for just over three years. The sports program offered was fun and energetic. The atmosphere surrounding the school was amazing and the teachers were very kind and polite. They really take learning as top priority, and manage to connect with the students as well. The counselors are amazing at helping you succeed in high school. I have had a lot of fun memories while attending school in Grand Forks and it is sad to see it end.
