I truly feel like my school allows you to be ambitious and go after your goals! Everyone in the school is willing to help you with any possible. My school lets you be great even after you graduate and decide to go to college you become who you want to be at Grady High School. There is literally no child left behind my school is full of over achievers. Attending this school is worth a million and what you will learn, see, and do does actually help you in life.
Review Grady High School
Grady High School is not just a school in downtown Atlanta. Yes, it's a school that interests many people due to the caring faculty, the hardworking students and the diversity. However, this school is made up of teachers that not only give students the freedom to flourish but also the freedom to express themselves. There are many programs involving the arts of theater, photography, dance, fashion and modeling. When entering the school one may notice the student made murals in the courtyard, or in the music hall and while strolling through the halls you may also notice the original fashions of a future fashion designer hanging on a manikin outside the fashion room. Students at Grady have the freedom to show off their talent and improve their skills while also having access to amazing teachers and counselors. This is why my experience at Grady High School was amazing and will never be forgotten.
Grady Hish School is already in an amazing, culturally inspiring area of Midtown Atlanta that cultivates the society that it is surrounded by. During my time spent here, Grady offered me and my class many opportunities to grow, experience, and mandate our dreams into our future. Grady is an inspiration, and local site to the community and will continue to inspire many of the students that are in attendance. Every school has it's own atmosphere, but Grady has it's own world entirely built off of the eccentric community it is surrounded by offering wonderous learning opportunities all the while being in one of the most interesting places in the United States, Atlanta, Georgia.
