The IB Program is a great program which should be more promoted and differentiate Grimsley from other Guilford County High Schools.

When I first went to Grimsley I hated it.... but after I got to know the school better and learn about the history there I instantly fell in love and now im a sophomore getting ready for there IB program next year which by the way the IB program at Grimsley is the best in all of Greensboro.

Grimsley has an outstanding academic program with courses to challenge and engage every student. The PTA, Athletic, Band, and Vocal booster groups are active and parent, community involvement is evident.

Grimsley High School has been a great choice for my children. The academics are strong (one quarter of the senior class this year is International Baccalaureate,) and there are many ways to be involved, as both a student and a parent. The PTA is strong, the principal is energetic, and most of the teachers are very good. My children are very different, yet each has found many ways to shine here. Grimsley is one of the oldest schools in town, with many loyal alumni and a longstanding reputation, so the expectation of its success is part of the community. It is consistently ranked as one of the top public high schools in the country - compared to private schools who can choose their clientele - and has instant name recognition among top colleges, in our experience. Families from many ethnic backgrounds all come here and seem proud to be GHS students, parents and alumni.

I truly enjoyed my time at Grimsley High. The teachers, for the most part, were great and worked with the students to get the best education possible. They are underfunded and the staff underpaid, but that is the unfortunate reality of a secondary school in North Carolina right now. The student body was very diverse and very representative of both Greensboro and the diversity of a state college to prepare them for university life. I was a football player and a member of the orchestra, as well as an AP student, so that shows that Grimsley has many different options for anyone who wants to do virtually anything. I read a couple of reviews about drugs in the school and that is true. However, most of the drugs are low-level users doing pot, not students using heroine or hardcore drugs. Also, find a city school that does not have some sort of drug problem. Ours was a very small issue. Bottom line, the vast majority of students who go to Grimsley come out prepared and ready for college and life beyond. I would be happy to send my own children there if I am in still in Greensboro at that point. Whirlie Pride from '09.
