The teachers and staff here are very friendly, highly educated, and helpful. Their willingness to help their students succeed is apparent and appreciated. Switching to this school has provided me with more tools to succeed that I did not know I was missing. This school shaped me into a more intelligent and mature student. The only thing missing from Grafton, but is becoming better, is the lack of diversity.

Grafton High School has given me many opportunities to challenge my knowledge in the subjects I am studying both in the classroom and through clubs. The teachers are dedicated to the work and will do anything to help you succeed but they always so that you must advocate for yourself which I believe has allowed me to grow as a person. Grafton High School prepares us very well for many things we will face in life, not just the ACT. They prepare us for college in many ways I believe other schools fail to do. As a junior, I have visited many colleges already and I would not be where I am right now in my college search without the help from the faculty and great group of students surrounding me. I personally believe there is nothing bad to say about Grafton High School because it has prepared me for many events in the future and it has put me in an accelerated learning environment which will lead me to a successful career in college in the near future.
This school has many issues with cliques and excluding others, bullying is most definitely an issue. Education wise there was a place for everyone, whether it be wanting to pursue an interest in the medical field or in the technical field. The counselors and administration are not the best, it felt as if it was constantly changing and it was hard to find trust in people who were guiding one's education.
