I have three kids at Grant, and my oldest, a fifth grader, has been there since kindergarten. My kids love the school, and as their parent, I am confident they are getting a first-rate education in a nurturing and caring environment.

Grant K8 offers children a warm nurturing environment in a beautiful neighborhood setting (next to Pioneer Park) - and has been there for 100 years. I'm a parent and also former student at Grant (I graduated in the late 80's). My two kids (ages 6 and 8) are entering 1st and 3rd grade - both started at ...  Read more

Wow! I read through some of the comments on here and was a bit surprised. The experience some have had differ greatly from my own personal experience. With 2 going on 3 kids in this school, I can say I have been very satisfied. I am even hoping to get Mr. Martocchio this year. Is it perfect? ...  Read more

We LOVE Grant--the teachers, the staff, the parents, and the kids are all wonderful. We have met such amazing people during our time at this school. The Middle School is great. It is such a relief to not have to worry about a new school until High School. We highly recommend it!!!

Grant K8 is an extraordinary school with committed faculty and staff. The parent community and PTA is very active and has made this school a real gem. With a new campus renovation starting in 2015 this school will be the best around. The science, math, gardening, digital media, art and music programs ...  Read more

Another Mission Hills family leaving Grant!! Discussded with teachers and Principal. So sad so many local families choose to send kids elsewhere.

Grant is a good school, yes, but it's not great. First, their current math program for the lower school is outdated and confusing. And can I say something about the school's favorite kindergarten teacher, Mr. Martacchio? He is the coldest, most arrogant, close minded kindergarten teacher I have ever ...  Read more

We have been so disappointed at Grant. Leadership is very low, they have gone through 3 principals in 4 years and not one has any leadership skills. Principal will not address any issues on campus, completely hands off. You would think it would be or should be zero tolerance, for bullying, illegal items, ...  Read more

My daughter goes to this school and I have been very happy this far, especially with the new principal. She has had wonderful teachers every year and she thrives. The most beautiful part is the park next to the schools, where the children play and socialize afterwards. It is such an enrichment to their ...  Read more

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.
