Grosse Pointe Public Schools Reviews

I have really enjoyed my time with GPPS! I feel very ready to attend college, with amazing academics and extracurricular opportunities preparing me. I love that the schools provide equal funding for all activities, rather than dedicating al their resources into one area. For example, at my high school, our women's sports were voted the best HS program in the state, the choir is recognized internationally and win many titles, and we have dozens of scholastic art award winners each year- I even have access to my ceramic classes in a college-level studio. The students also care very much about their academics. My only qualm is that I wish the schools (and community) were more diverse.
Review Your School
I really am blessed to have grown up within this school district. I constantly find myself reflecting on my previous school years with my friends and having nothing but great memories. I've had great grades all through my school career thanks to the amazing teachers in this district. I'm graduating this year and it's bittersweet because even though it's been hard at times, I've loved every bit of going to school in the GPPSS. I hope that one day my children get to learn and expand in a district as amazing as GPPSS.
My school, Grosse Pointe South has proven to have many rich benefits and almost no low points. At South, as the students refer to the school, we receive one of the best educations in the state and sometimes South is recognized on a national level for its sports and academics. South also offers an array of other in school clubs and programs. This makes it easy to find a hobby that you enjoy and connect with peers that share the same intrests.
