At Griswold High, you are welcomed by teachers, students, and all faculty. It is a very inclusive school that provides many opportunities for students such as AP courses, CNA certification, and the chance to earn college credit. My experience at Griswold allowed me to make new friends, find what I’m really interested in, and feel at home when I walk through the doors. The teachers are very understanding and go the extra mile for every student to give them the best education possible.

Even though the school was small and had very little financial support, they always made it work. The music and arts department alone was what really made our school worth attending. Most of my teachers were amazing and really took pride in their work. I just wish the school received the financial backing it needed and that money wasn't wasted on unnecessary things.
There's something about Griswold and the people that inhabit that school. It's like a family there and you never feel like you have to go through anything alone. However, I do wish that they would make their extracurricular activities a little more inclusive.
