Grand Rapids Public School District Reviews

Grand Rapids Public School District is a really good district. The teachers care. The custodians care. The administration cares. Parents are involved and the community supports all areas from sports to arts to all the different clubs. A student can be involved as much or as little as they wish. There is also wide variety of college prep classes. I am proud to say I went to Grand Rapids and proud to have been a Thunderhawk!!

It was a great school for kids looking for tech classes. The tech wing is top notch. Math department is strong with the exception of a few students. I personally had a problem with the English department, I feel that they don't do a good job preparing students for college writing, with the exception of the College Prep Writing course. It's an overall good school but there's plenty of room for improvement.
My experience at ISD 318 has been great. I would love to see more encouragement of students to participate in PSEO rather than staff looking down on the opportunity. I would also like to see better communication for students between their PSEO college and the high school
