Gruver Independent School District Reviews

I have attended Gruver schools since kindergarten. The one idea that makes Gruver stand out from other schools is the level of expectations in every aspect of the school. Every employee at the school expects all the students to succeed, try their hardest, and act in a respectable way. These expectations begin in kindergarten and have continued through-out my entire time in school. I remember going on field trips as a kid and the teachers would tell us, "Remember, you are representing Gruver, and we all act like the best Greyhound we can." Being a Greyhound meant, and still means, showing the upmost respect to anyone we meet, doing our very best, and having integrity in everything we do. From band students, to academics, to athletics, the students and faculty at Gruver Schools are incredibly successful because of this standard. We have represented Gruver at the state level in every area this current school year. To say I am proud to be a Gruver Greyhound is an understatement!

At Gruver High School, educational opportunities are provided in abundance. Teachers and community members alike want to see every student succeed; the community strives to help all students excel and reach their full potential. Selfless residents of my small town go out of their way to create opportunities for students such as myself. The Gruver Farm Scholarship Foundation is one of the ways that the people of my hometown show their care for students. The foundation selects a local lead farmer to raise corn and cotton and allowing the revenue to go to the scholarship program. For the program, students are awarded points based on a merit system of participation and success in academics and school activities; the more points a student earns on the merit system, the more money the student receives for college tuition. There is no other place I would have chosen to grow up in because Gruver is truly the best. There is nothing I would change about my amazing and supportive school.
I liked Gruver until they started changing all the rules to make the school "better." I believe in if something is not broke then do not fix it. For example, we must now turn phones in to teachers instead of keeping them in our pockets like students have for countless years in the past. Instead, we must turn them in to the teacher at the beginning of each class period. I also do not understand why the teachers must block all websites that are not solely educational as now students have no desire to finish the work since there is no reward.
