What I loved about Grant Community High School was how quickly I was able to find groups and clubs to associate myself with. I went in with only a couple of my close friends. But soon after I became friends with many others and involved myself in clubs that I loved to be a part of, such as the Chess Team. The teachers there are great! They always got us involved and always strove for our success in and out of the classroom.

My experience at Grant has been great so far. I am currently enrolled in Honors and AP classes, and feel very prepared for college. The staff cares about their students and always keeps the school spirit high!
the teachers are extremely nice and have special relationships with their teachers and actually care. Even though they are nice doesn't particularly mean they're good teachers. I blame the school system for that because my learning style is different from what the school program expects. They somewhat don't care about the students mental health. They also don't fund art as much as they should, especially with a lot of the grant population being some type of artist. My art teachers have to scavenge for money to fund the beautiful and talented art pieces at this school. Sports are seen as more important, yes they're important, but so is art. Grant doesn't see that. For the most part people are decent there. There are always gonna be mean people but at grant for what I've experienced a lot of people there have racist, sexist, and homophobic ideations. But there are also amazing people there. Overall grant could improve
