I understand that allowing only seniors to drive and park at GHS is a problem. My adult children graduated from GHS in 2001 and 2005. I didn't like the fact that kids who were not seniors but were involved in the program that allowed them to work half and day and attend school half a day. I am hoping ...  Read more

Being a new Grafton family we are often impressed with the positive attitudes and quick problem solving of the staff. The students have been welcoming also. My only issue is that only Seniors are permitted to park at school. There are exceptions but the rule is only Seniors. Having a student to has after ...  Read more

I have had 2 children in this school and have been happy with the school. I think communication could be a l little better, especially from the Guidance dept. I do think the parents need to hold their children more accountable then the teachers and not expect them to be spoon fed which seems to be ...  Read more

It is no longer the excellent school it was in the past. Non communicative teachers, flippant attitudes, political through and through. The morale is horrible with the staff, they pick and choose who they are "nice" to and treat most students like numbers, unless you are amongst the "chosen" few. YC ...  Read more

I wish I would have known how bad the environment was before sending my children there.

My son graduated from Grafton last year. It is not a school that I recommend to anyone the does not have an over achiever unless you can buy their way to success here. It is very cliquish. Your children will have a difficult time at this school unless they excel at sports, or scholastically. This ...  Read more

After attending Grafton for all four years, I would have to say overall that my experience was negative. The school places too much emphasis on athletics, and students involved in the arts or other types of activities rarely receive recognition. Being in the band and having several excellent teachers ...  Read more

I'm a freshman at Grafton and I have to agree there are alot of stuck up people but if you get involved in activities that you like, you will find true friends here. Majority of the stuck up people are the "popular" groups but they don't amount to much of the school. the rest of the school is very nice. ...  Read more

i was very disappointed in GHS after good experiences with GBES and GMS. All of a sudden teachers dont communicate with parents, dont respond to phone calls or problems. My child has a problem with a 10th grade English teacher and we were pretty much ignored on it. Staff just seems not to care much.

I am a freshman, and i love this school. I like the people i am friends with but if you havnt moved here from middle school, than your going to find a hard time making friends. People are so clique orientated and no one really talks to new people. The teachers are okay, but the guidance counclers rock! ...  Read more
