Grady High School is a place where students are able to express themselves in many different ways. Our school is very diverse and many people come from different backgrounds, so having that cultural diversity brings everyone into a place of involvement. Whether involvement is in sports, community service, clubs, in the classroom, or outside of school. Everyone at Grady wants everyone to succeed and that’s the kind of school environment I love to be in everyday. We just got a Free Lunch meal plan for everyone at school and installed cross walks for the safety of the student body and faculty which shows how much we care about everyone. The cross walk initiation was by the idea of a student at Grady, which shows the great leadership that Grady has and wants to spread. I 10/10 recommended this High School because of the challenges it throws at you and the support you get all the way to your Senior Year.

I liked the diversity in the schools and the people that surrounded me. The teachers work well with the students and do their best to try to help us learn. The college advisors that we have in place are also very helpful with college questions and completing applications. The school lunches thay we have our somewhat descent but could be better, as their should be more choices offered every day. The saftey of our school is not all that great beacuse their are a lot of reports with students having handheld weapons on campus. Nobody really checks students good enough so anythin can happen on anyday. Overall our school is somewhat of a good learning school.
Grady was a perfect diverse environment for me to excel and grow in. I have met some of the most talented and intelligent people here no matter their background that all have such different interests. Being at an inner-city school opens students' eyes to so many different things including the backgrounds some students can come from or the advantages of being in the middle of a city including colleges loving us and companies wanting to help our school out. You will come across some difficult teachers but it teaches you how to work with anyone you come across, and I have also had some of the best teachers who have fully contributed to my high school success.
