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.

Grosse Pointe public schools are clearly well funded with many options for after school activities for kids pursuing both sports and non-athletic interests. Teachers are very engaged and provide ample feed back individualized to the student. The campus is beautiful, well maintained and safe. Athletics options for both boys and girls are ample and coaches emphasize participation and team work over individual accomplishment.
The school is always highly ranked among public schools in the state and the majority of students are focused on getting accepted to a college or university. There are many opportunities for students to take college preparatory as well advanced placement courses. Seniors have an option to participate in a work study program. The school offers many resources and assistance regarding searching and applying for a post graduate education. Counselors are very responsive and easily contacted to discuss any all concerns regarding ones child.
What the Grosse Pointe Public School System offered to me was truly incredible. Although the district as a whole is not very diverse, the community still works strongly to make sure everyone has a fair and positive learning experience. The programs and activities offered, such as sports and the performing arts, are absolutely amazing and give students a look at a professional setting in their field of interest. However, it does seem like the sports program is more funded than anything else offered through the schools. Overall, I believe that the Grosse Pointe Public School System is a wonderful set of schools with amazing learning environments throughout all of the district.
