Grafton High prepared me extremely well for college. I was able to take a rigorous course of studies, and was pushed daily to do better and learn more. The counseling services helped me to apply to and select a fitting college. There were a plethora of extracurricular activities that were fun to participate in. I enjoyed knowing my teachers and was very comfortable asking questions and going to extra help sessions. The admissions staff was also very approachable.

At Grafton, there are so many wonderful and supportive teachers there to help you learn and have your back as well. The administration usually has the good of the students as a whole in mind at all times and do their best to help everyone have a great experience. There are so many wonderful clubs to take part in, and its easy to make your own if needed. The food could be a it better, but that is due to the vendors, not the wonderful cooking staff at GHS. Grafton as a whole is a very white town so the school does end up reflecting that, so diversity isn't fantastic here.
Grafton High School had many pros and cons over the years. Administration often favored certain students over others based on activities that they were involved in. Example: sports kids were often punished less or let off on easier terms than those involved with the arts when breaking the same rule. The teachers were pretty average, but did their jobs. The guidance department were some of the least helpful people I have ever come into contact with. While nice people, they were not qualified for their jobs in regards to how they approach issues.
