Teachers are not dedicated to teaching students like they should be. We come from a low income area and teachers do not challenge students to excel. Teachers are not willing to change curriculum to teach students life related topics like how to complete tax forms, how to write a check, how to complete a college scholarship. Students need to learn more about how to survive once you graduate!

I would love to see Grafton High School exposed to more diversity and higher level curriculum. The school does have a very close knit community base, however there needs to be more opportunity! The Tech Programs are very beneficial to a lot of students who don't intend to go to college. However the students that are planning to go to college, are not very readily prepared.
Teachers are very supportive, although our school does have a struggle with college readiness. Our teachers will try to help in every way possible! The principal tries to remember everyone by name and be sure to know things about them. It’s a personable school, and if you need anything, everyone is willing to help!
