Grand River Preparatory High School Reviews
I walked into my high school on the first day feeling like I was surrounded by family. Throughout my time here, I have been introduced to teachers who will do everything they possibly can to ensure that their students are cared for and classes that have been challenging yet incredibly rewarding. I have been offered so many AP classes that have helped me prepare for college education programs in addition to learning how to be responsible with my schoolwork. The sports available here have also enabled me to build strong relationships with my teammates as well as learn how to properly exhibit good sportsmanship. Coming to GRP has been the greatest decision I have ever made in my life.
Grand River Preparatory is a very diverse and cultured high school. Grand River is smaller than the other high schools around, meaning the students and teacher can create a bond during school and keep that bond after the students graduate. Also, it gives a chance for all the students to get to know all their classmates. The teachers spend time after school to help their students in tutoring and also help them outside of school with emails.
This year, im a Junior. While this school is very good education wise, these last three years. Its really upsetting not to have any real food that doesn't come out of plastic containers. The school feels 100-200 student over capacity and it sucks getting around the school. Our teachers are absolutely amazing, they all really care about us and our education. Im bothered on grading though. Theres a single question on your tests that dictate if you get an A or a B. If you get even half a question wrong on the first half of the test, you cant get more than a C. You take three tests on what you're learning, you learn from your mistakes. All the people I know are very involved in what little we have to offer. We have very few sports; volleyball, soccer, basketball. If the school had enough funding for more sports, actual lunches, better classrooms, and got rid of students causing problems, this would be probably the best school you could go to.
