Grant Union Junior/Senior High School Reviews

I recently moved away, and although my new school has way better rankings, I feel like my new school should be lower. GU really prepared my for going to college/career and having engaging courses. The teachers really care about you. For students that were struggling, teachers always made time to help explain, and really pushed students to graduate and pass their classes. But also, if the student wasn't ready, they wouldn't pass them anyway. All students that graduated were prepared for their next step. For gifted students, the school offers many advanced and college courses, even if the class is very small. One of my classes only had 6 students in it, but we could advance faster because we got more individual help if we needed. I would not say there is grade inflation at this school. Graduating with a 4.0 was actually an honor. Teachers really care that students are learning and understanding, not how high their grades are. Diversity is low, but students accept minorities.

I went to Grant Union and had a good time. The teachers are great, the administration has since changed and the extra curricular activities were of high importance. Bullying was an issue, as it is almost everywhere. The faculty did their best to fix this problem. The buildings are always kept in good condition and always clean.
Administration is not receptive to student concerns. The administration does not include student opinions in many of the decisions made. Public opinion is generally negative toward school district and administration. Overall the teachers are not bad but could put in more effort to reach their students. Very few clubs are active. Many seniors have not been informed about how to apply for college and feel as if there is no one to help them.
