Our family Absolutely loves Grassfield High School. Both my older siblings have graduated as Grizzlies and being a part of the Grizzly Pride has defined our entire family. We feel fortunate to have been a part of all the traditions started, the service and sense of community that is a part of the school, and look forward to always returning to participate as a Grassfield Grizzly!

Grassfield is a very privileged school, but that brings in much parent involvement and many resources. The academics are phenomenal, as it is a STEM school and the teachers are ready to help and teach every day. Many teachers stay after each day to help their students. I only wish the sports were better advertised so individuals knew when games were. The sports are not terrible, but it is difficult to find information on when and where games are. Overall, I love my school and am grateful to have the opportunity to graduate with so many AP classes under my belt and a wonderful education.
When I arrived at Grassfield the fall semester of my Junior year I noticed an unusually large amount of cliques and did not feel I was given many opportunities to meet other students with common interests upon my arrival. Since I had transferred in the middle of the semester, I was unable to join any fall sports and consequently felt like I was missing out on many of the activities many of my other classmates were able to enjoy. Many of my teachers however worked very hard to create an open and welcome classroom environment making it easy to make good connections within the school.
