Grundy County School District Reviews

3 reviews
As long as I live, I will never forget how amazing our teachers are. They are always willing to go above and beyond to ensure that we, the students, receive the best possible education and experience. I feel more than prepared to attend college in the fall, thanks to my teachers at GCHS. The community is very tight and caring; everyone is always willing to come together to help someone in times of need.
The only problem I find with Grundy County High School is that, due to the fact that we live in a socio-economically disadvantaged area, opportunities offered to us are very limited. I would like to see more opportunities, educational, vocational, extracurricular, etc. come to the area.

Graduated from Grundy and have children currently attending. Grundy offers a lot but the school board doesn't have our students in their best interest so our schools and kid suffer for it.
Grundy County does not offer much diversity for the students. Resources are very limited to none. Teachers do not communicate well.
