Grapevine High School has so much to offer their students, from multiple clubs and orginizations one can be apart of, to their undeniable school spirit. We have dedicated teachers and the most friendly students. I love being a mustang and would 11/10 recommend Grapevine High School to any incoming freshman!

I love Grapevine High School's school spirit. Everyone is kind, welcoming, and generous with their time. However, many of the best teachers feel ignored by the administration and there appears to be little need for students to do well on AP exams (especially in languages). The coursework is not extremely rigorous and teachers are for the large part lackadaisical. Counselors as well have a reputation of underestimating students, planning things without thought, and not caring about students. Student-athletes get to use a college-level workout building, but art students have to pay to be in all art classes. I wish that there was a more fair distribution of supplies and less wasteful spending on ineffective security measures, but overall it is a great school with a good community--and it is what you make of it.
Overall, GHS is a good school that sets up students to succeed in academics and extracurriculars. Plenty of clubs are offered for students who are looking for involvement or even career-specific experience. Academic wise, many AP classes are available and there are plenty of resources in the Go Center to prepare kids for college and careers. The teachers I’ve had have been mostly helpful, although it depends on the class. And although the workload is challenging at times, I feel it prepares me. One thing to note, though, is that this school can be competitive and the drive to overload students with AP’s can prove challenging for students who want to rank well.
