Grosse Pointe South High School Reviews
Grosse Pointe South provides an exceptional education for all students. Even though the school isn't very diverse, they do not discriminate based on anyone's race, religion, appearence, etc. The school is very welcoming to all types of students. Teachers at this school are great; highly educated in their field and always open to answering questions and giving extra help to students in need of it. Overall Grosse Pointe South is a great high school, no wonder it is ranked so highly!
As a senior at Grosse Pointe South, I can definitely say that I've enjoyed my time at my school. For the most part it's been a pretty good experience. The students are mostly well-behaved and there is a nice community atmosphere. The teachers are kind and outgoing and overall, very well-educated on their subjects. There are some teachers who I've really connected with; they'll go out of their way to care about students' wellbeing. There is some controversy over changes in administration recently regarding school's drug policies, but I think administration is just trying to better our school. While some students do live up to the school's snotty reputation, most students are kind and intelligent and the school makes for a great learning environment. The diverse amount of AP classes and sports were things that I really appreciated in my time here.
There is a hand full of teachers who really go above and beyond to engage their students in the lesson and who will reach out or be willing to work with students outside of class (three english teachers I have had experiences with over my four years and a few others I've never had classes with) about 75-80% are not really invested in each and every one of their students and are just there to do their job and most of them do it well, and their is also the 25% that need to consider a new profession all together. All but one of the language teachers are HORRIBLE!
