I'm a freshman at Grace King, and this school...well, this school is alright. I have found that the educational amounting of Grace King exceeds my expectations in some points (The Geometry courses are sipmly amazing!) but also lack in others (Creative writing: No creativity whatsoever.). Being in the

When I first showed up, I was really scared, because I didn't have the best experiances with school the past few years. But the student body really accepted me, and I have lots of friends all over the grades. The Seniors are very helpful! The school is lacking in a good Band Program, but is working hard to get up to highschool level. The Band room, to our dismay, is the only room that hasn't been renovated. We also lack in support for our Girls Soccer team. Altogether, Grace King is a wonderful school! There's so much to do, and if you play your cards right, you can have a lot of fun! Read less

The principal at this school, Meg Griffon is horrible with the school. She tries to run the school with an iron fist, but that has only made the students hate going to school, and one teacher even stated to me that they are all too intimidated to go to the principal with any opinion other than hers

Her assistant principal has been much more helpful towards both the parents and the students than Mrs. Griffon has ever been! Read less
