Grant Park High School Reviews
From being in this district since kindergarten, I've learned that teachers either really do care or don't. In high school, more teachers tend to care rather than not. We have excellent fine arts program - our music deptartment even received 1st place in state music sweepstakes for D class division! There are so many wonderful artists, as well. I wish more funding could go towards fine arts because there are so many talented students, but our money is kept with the athletic dept. Yes, we do have some highly skilled athletes, but as a team, people don't mix all that well. And, not just with sports or clubs, so many people are left out or discarded because people deem them "not good enough." Grant Park has a few families that have been there forever and if you are not, or aren't related to, "GP Royalty", you won't make it very far. Overall, the teachers, clubs, sports, classes, and fine arts are fantastic but the students are just awful.
Grant Park high school is ok. There is nothing special about it. Teachers are alright, for the most part. The school has a poor special education program, but for the "normal" kids I suppose it is fine. More effort could be put in to the school in multiple ways, but some of the staff genuinely care about the students. Overall, the school is average I would say, but special education students are not warmly welcomed to the school. They are often discriminated against by the staff. So if you want to attend the school, I hope you are "normal".
As a current student of Grant Park High School, I feel that the school does an excellent job of preparing students for the world ahead of them. The teachers are deeply involved within their job and extracurriculars have always been enjoyable in my experience. Things that should be changed within the future is more emphasis on the arts programs as they get very little funding or thought toward and more drug/alcohol prevention programs.
