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.
I love going to this school. It has great teachers and a lot of choices to pick from for classes, clubs, and sports. I also love the band program. There's a jazz band, concert band, smthyonic band, wood wind band, brass band, and percussion band. Those last three aren't optional tho. Oh let's not for get the marching band. It's the best band in the state. Also there is a pep band. I love Grand Rapids and am proud to be a part of it.
