Grand Island Public Schools Reviews
The Grand Island Public School system is slightly bias when it comes to athletes. Most of the athletes there are the students who tend to get into the most trouble and cause the most harm to others. However because they are athletes, they are seen as the perfect student since they need to be able to play in all of the games. They also get much more funding compared to the other departments such as the music department. As someone who was in the music department for the full 8 years that I was in the Grand Island Public School system, I saw many occasions where the athletic department would get special treatment while the rest of the school had to find different ways to make their own money for activities. However once you are able to get past that, the overall quality of the schools and teachers is very good. The majority of the teachers I had were very nice and kind people.
What I like about Grand Island public schools is the teacher involvement and academics. Advanced placement classes are fun, interesting, and help us prepare for college. Clubs, activities, and sports are also fun and competitive.
Overall a good experience, teachers are helpful and seem to care a lot about individual students. College readiness could use some extra work because the courses become overly simply unlike college courses.
