I have attended Grace King High School for nearly four years and I believe the school focuses on the wrong things. Grace King focuses on the schools overall success rather than focusing or even helping a student graduate. This school even puts the students in danger by making us prone to diseases and viruses by not letting us go to the restroom when need to or even supplying soap in the bathroom, but I helped myself and persevered and studied on my own and basically taught myself and I have maintained a GPA of 3.5 or higher.

I went to grace king four years. Resources, administration are poor, but teachers are fine, they are nice and helpful. Whenever you have questions they will always like to help you!
As expected from a public school in Louisiana, Grace Kings is an average school, no the worst, not the best. I personally love the fact that it has access to dual enrollment courses and AP, because of this I now have 5 college credits and in my way to getting 8. But they are very careless about putting kids into these courses. The school gets points from people taking them,so they throw as much people as possible, withourt considering that some are not ready for it and might mess up their GPA for college.

Other things, in general teachers are good, food is trash, the school rules are pretty unconsiderate of the student's needs, and the campus is clean but not pretty.
