AMAZING!!! I'm a student that currently attends Graland and I must say this is proabably one or if not the best experiences of my life. The academics are amazing at this school and the teachers are highly flexible with the students and their learning style. In addition to a great education, Graland has

One of my favorite aspects of Graland is there Physical Education/Sports program, Graland has many outstanding coaches that help make learning new sports easy and entertaining. Graland's P.E also helps us students bond with peers outside of the classroom. Overall Graland is the most amazing school and I wish it was K-12 so that my experience could last longer!!! Read less

WE LOVE GRALAND! I can't say enough about the teachers and the administration. They are incredibly in tune with the kids and responsive to the parents. Technology is integrated at every turn and our kids are inspired daily. While a school that is "traditional", it is also quite progressive in how
... Read more they adopt new teaching techniques. They also put a real emphasis on the social emotional development of our kids which as a parent, is such a relief. I really value the community at Graland. There is a diverse group of families and kids and we have made many new friends. Graland makes it easy to build community/friendships through ongoing activities and events. I know my kids will receive an excellent education and that is fabulous. But I'm most excited that my kids will build friends and a community for life. Also, a big shout out to the specials teachers like the music guys/drama/art etc. They make learning super fun for the kids. In addition, daily physical education has been critical for my kids to "get the wiggles out" and learn new sports. I can't say enough great things about this school. People should definitely sign up for a tour and check it out for themselves. Read less

I've had two children at Graland for the last three years, and I can't overstate how much we love it. It's only the second week of summer vacation and my kids are already asking when they "get" to go back! Thank you Mrs. Schreiner, Mrs. Newman, Mrs. Wagner, Ms. Cooper and all of the wonderful support

A networking forum for Denver's social elite masquerading as a school: more focus is put on events for parents than on trying to improve education for children. Academics average; teacher quality far below value of such a high tuition. Lot of energy spent on indoctrination of issues like diversity and
... Read more character, but little attempt to go beyond parroting buzzwords. Leadership too arrogant and inexperienced to recognize the school's problems, let alone fix them. Good place for busy parents to babysit children who have a lifelong trust to take care of them and who want to meet their own kind - questionable how well it prepares a child for life outside the country club.

Graland has been a fantastic educational experience for my child (currently enrolled in Kindergarten). The breadth & depth of the curriculum has far exceeded our expectations, and the commitment to the arts, music, science, foreign language and daily physical education is commendable. Unlike some of
... Read more the postings about materialism and elistism, we have not experienced either at this school. The children attending the school have been genuinely nice, and there is zero tolerance for rude behavior (many positive behaviors are modeled starting early such as compliments at circle time). The community has been very welcoming with down-to-earth families who help continually at the school (Graland sock hop, bingo night, Carnival, the list goes on). The choice to attend Graland over another public or private option boils down to its small class sizes, focus on its broad, traditional curriculum, and its wonderful faculty and facilities. Read less

Many say its prestige is worth it, which tells you a lot. There is not a high level of parental involvement, the academics isn't as good as I would have hoped and my child is definately learning little about diversity, humility, thriftiness and just plain kindness as there is so much judmentalism and

This school is perfect for the mom/dad who finds joy in telling people their child is from Graland, simply because of its pricetag which they perceive will earn them a great deal of prestige as well. So sad for the children who will grow up to focus on such hopeless ideals and the emptiness materialism brings. Read less

The impressive campus is a disguise for what lies beneath! The core curriculum is very 'progressive' and leaves a lot be desired and there is a definite one-size-fits-all philosophy at present. Control over disruptive kids in the some classrooms is highly questionable as is the 'zero tolerance'

A lot of socially elite families: there is not much of an atmosphere of parent community and a good percentage do not seem to be aware of very much that goes on in the classroom or the school in general. Happily, the remainder are starting to ask a lot of questions and so, hopefully, it's time for the leadership and administration to wake up, deliver and save the good name of the School. Read less
