I have been at Graham for four years now and overall I've had a great experience. Graham really gave me positive and exciting High School experience. The Teachers and staff really show their care and interest in preparing students for college and after high school. There is a warm and welcoming environment with new things to discover. Yes, not many positive things have been stated about our school but I take pride in being a Red devil . I like walking through the double doors every day and knowing that I'm bettering myself and my future.
Review Graham High School
My experience was pretty good in Graham High School, I met a lot of new people and got to be in a lot of clubs. I liked that right now as a senior they have a college advisor at school all day everyday so she helps me a lot with college. The only thing I really didn't like is that the food wasn't good and there wasn't a lot of food options. I liked most of the teachers because they would always be there before or after school for help with any work. My favorite part about high school was being on the girls soccer team because it felt good having a team to support you. It was more than just a team, we bonded so much that we all felt like family.
I've had a great experience at Graham High. The teachers care about ones well being and ones success. Although the staff are amazing, I feel like the rigor is not where it should be. Graham is full of potential and knowledgeable kids, we just need the right push. The greatest teachers who pushed me, drove me, and guided me were Walter Mastin, Ashleigh Denny, Torrence Carle, and Tony Whitsell.
