Read what parents are saying about Grady Middle School
My child came from Briargrove and this is her 3rd yr at Grady. Her 6th grade yr was great. She was happy and excited about going to school. Towards the end of 7th she wasn't too thrill and now 8th she just can't stand the school. Just like every school you have some teachers who care and others who don't. We have had issues with 2 teachers. She felt she was being bullied by one and just picked on or singled out by the other. She has came home telling me horrible stories of adolescent sex in restrooms and drugs on campus. None of this is communicated to the parents. The principal is tough and stays on top of everything. I must say. When I have had issues I get a response fairly quickly. They also focus on STARR testing. Lots of extra curricular activities. The new campus is great. Kids are no longer in T-buildings. You have your good and bad wherever you might go.

As a new student in special ed, our son is receiving the similar care and concern he experienced in nine years of private school. The teachers and administration bends over backwards to ensure students get a first-rate education. Grady is a gem of HISD. be more pleased with the care and responsiveness of our the teachers and administration.

I am currently a high school student at Memorial High School and after leaving Grady Middle School I felt very prepared. People always say Spring Branch schools are supposed to be more difficult, but I am at the top of my class because of the great foundation Grady provided for me. I loved all of my teachers and I felt like I had a personal relationship with most of them. The teachers really care about the students.

I went to Grady Middle School for three years and had some of the best years of my life that I know I will never forget. I always wish that Grady had been a school that went from 6th grade all the way to 12th grade! Grady has so many different activities and fun things that you can do during and after school... Personally I was and still am a theatre kid and the theatre program at Grady is one if the many things that I am thankful to Grady for. Another thing that I could not imagine going to that school with out are the teachers and staff! I had the best time with all of my teachers and coaches and deans! They all are always there for you and I still go and visit them and call them for advice! (My mom and my math teacher are now best friends!) Not to mention that they are in the process and are so close to finishing a whole new school! If Grady is still around when I have a family and kids... That's where you'll see my kids getting the best education I could ever ask for!

If you love your children don't go to this school. This school is really bad! One of my teachers lets us watch cartoons and pretend we are working instead of practicing for STAAR test. All the buildings are made of wood and they are really dirty and old. Another teacher doesn't care about you and if you don't understand something he won't explain to you! He also has a really messy classroom! Also a teacher tells us to study something and puts something different in the test!! I have experienced all those conflicts so believe me don't let your child go there!!
