This school is amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! they treat us so well!!! They love us all very much! They teach how to have good relationships with people, and they teach us how to talk about our feelings. The food sucks though, like really! There isn't much bullying only here and there, never that I've seen. I have great relationships with the staff here!
God gave me three beautiful children. I raised them with good values to respect people, do what is right and fallow the rules. We are not perfect but, I always receive compliments for my well behaved kids from people coming to my house, Doctors offices, churches, preschool, elementary school and other places in public.
My first born was an honor roll student in elementary school never get in trouble. Everything changed when he attended GRMS. Some teachers were nice, others were horrible, quick to take disciplinary actions against my son instead of teaching other kids not to attack my son. To my opinion, the school administration is quick to put a bad report on the African American kids' file. All I experienced there was prejudice and discrimination in that school. My son is in High school now, his teachers always have good things to say about him, no suspensions, no bad report, and of course "well behaved kid" reported. I am glad I moved out of the area.
