Grand Island Central School District Reviews

Grand Island is an amazing island that is well-crafted in all aspects. This school provides a wide variety of extra curricular activities, sports, musicals, arts and many more clubs; this allows everyone to feel at home here. This island is secluded and we are a fairly large high-school, and a very intelligent one at that. The one change I would bring to Grand Island would be a more ethnic and culturally diverse community. I would love for more foreign languages to be offered, more transfer students, and a more diverse atmosphere. Of course, I would not physically be able to make changes such as these, but by being a strong part of the student government and therefore, having an easily accessible way to incorporate my ideas as fellow as the rest of the student body, to the facility, who would be able to do something. Thank you!

I have been part of the Grand Island Central School District since I was in kindergarten. Just like any school you come across teachers who make your school experience great and others that do the opposite. All throughout my years at Grand Island majority of my teachers have been outstanding. The teachers try to get to know you, your likes and dislikes, and are very accommodating. The school offers great options for electives. I wouldn't change a thing about Grand Island, my school experience has made me into the person I am today!
I thought Grand Island High School was a great district because they focused deeply on academics and made sure that each student was involved. They hosted lots of activities for students to get involved in which made you feel important. Each staff member was incredibly nice and helpful at all times. I would like to see Grand Island become more diverse and possibly make the food quality better. Overall, I had a wonderful experience with this district and am proud to say that I am an alumni.
