This is our first year at GHS...my daughter is a freshman. A few things that I dislike: the school is HUGE, very crowded halls, big classes, approximately 650 students in cafeteria during each lunch period, lots of trailers in back. My daughter's gifted classes have up to 35 kids in there, her AP class has what seems like 40! Things that I like: my daughter has some fabulous teachers (a couple are just average), the APs work really hard to keep all the kids in line, the school seems to be very clean or at least the areas I've seen. I'm not overly impressed with GHS so far, but to be a large metro public high school it's about what one would expect. I do feel from talking with other parents of older students the school has declined some in recent years.

We moved to Georgia last year. So far, I'm moderately impressed with Grayson HS. My child was lucky to find four very dedicated teachers last year, however, it seems like we've encountered either excellent or poor teachers with not a lot falling in the middle. The math dept. seems to have more than its fair share of teachers who are not well-trained in thier subject. One teacher in the foreign language dept. actually "helped" the students by hinting at answers while they were taking a final. Students might have scored well, but what did they learn? On the positive side, I am pleased that there is a zero tolerance for bullying and poor behavior.

I have two children at Grayson, a freshman and a senior. My daughter is an excellent student and is the top 5% of her class. The school has had 4 months since she was accepted to an internship, but still does not know where they are going place her. They are also dropping classes that focus on science (i.e. biotechnology and AP chemistry). Please don t get me started on the uniformed counselors who only seem interested in the path that requires the least amount of work. My son just started and all is not well. There are 35 students in his gifted math class! His teacher in his foreign language class has no classroom management skills so students play their ipods on deaf and sleep during class. A major irritant is that although he has no handicap tag, the principal always parks his huge truck in the handicapped spaces. I feel that Grayson has declined with each year. I would no longer recommend this school.

Great school. I was offered the chance to go to another high school, but I stayed in my current district because I didn't want to leave Grayson.

I am grandfather of a future student. I expect him to be a good to excellent tennis player by then. I would want him on the tennis team. Alas, I find that the tennis courts at GHS are 90 degrees out of proper alinement. That shows a blatant disregard by staff to understand or really care about tennis. Bodes poorly for my grandson's chances to learn from that ignorant staff. Just a heads up to other parents who trust a american football type mentality.

I went to grayson when i was just comeing out of homeschool. i was a downer and looked down on every thing, one of these being my life. but as the years passed grayson built me up and gave me some of the best friends ive ever had. ill never forget my years at grayson. i dint like it at first but i got thru it. its a good school and if anyone puts even just a little effort they will be fine. this school gave me the tools to become a man. anyone looking for a good school, look no futher. but i warn you. there are problems with grayson just like any school. but i found there to be much less. and they also keep the school in grat shape. the teachers are mostly good and very easy to work with. all most all of my teachers gave me good time to do my work. but again, they are bad teachers.

I've had 2 children come up through the Grayson cluster. The school has been a great experience for one, and a so-so experience for the other. For the most part, as a parent, I've been pleased. For my child who struggles more academically, I've been a little disappointed that there has been little to no contact initiated by the school. However, for the most part, I have been well received when I've requested a meeting or sent an email. At no fault of the school itself, it's a large place making it very easy for someone to fall through the cracks.

I am a teacher and have taught in Gwinnett County for all 15 years. I am also a product of Gwinnett Co. Schools being a graduate of Parkview. I think Grayson is an excellent place for students. At any place you go, there is always room for improvement, but you have to go into it with a good attitude. Those that I saw excell (even non-athletes) were those that had that positive attitude. They were going to do well regardless of who their teacher was or what the administration was doing or not doing. The school is open to help from all parents. The best way to help is not complain, but come up with a solution to what you see as a problem.

This is our first year at Grayson High, We moved to this area specifically due to the high recommendations of Mconnell and Grayson. I have some issues with the high school so far, not the least is the way I feel when i walk in to check out my child. I was told my daugher had two offenses, one due to being 20 minutes late! with me checking her in,. the other for being checked out by me her mom? I hope the greater good of this school is not overshadowed by many over the top rules, and it would be nice to be addressed as an adult when walking in to deal with the people checking in and out the students, or dealing with parents..

My daughter is extremely happy at Grayson. We would like to move closer to Midtown where my husband works, but our daughter begged us to stay put until she graduates in two years. Grayson's AP and gifted programs are phenomenal. Our daughter will be well prepared for the SAT and college admission.

I am currently a student at Grayson and I believe that it is a pretty good school, but there is many teachers that do not bother in teaching the students the things needed for the test and finals. There is many teachers that cannot even control their students and they do not even try to get along with them and give out referals like crazy for the smallest reasons I believe that the teachers hired should have more hands on experience before hand so they know how to understand the students needs. There is other teachers that do not respect students

I teach at Grayson, and I think that this is one of the finest schools anywhere near here. The staff is very concerned with students' well being, and the coaching staff has done a great job of developing talent in all the sports. The leadership here is firm with the students, but supportive of its teachers and open to the parents. This has been the best stop of my career, and I look forward to my children coming through the Grayson cluster.

As a Grayson Alum, I do not think the school is half as bad as everyone says it is. I am going into my senior year at UGA and believe Grayson prepared me for college the best it could. There were many classes available to students that were beyond helpful such as AP classes, Peer Leadership, and QUEST Internship, just to name a few. The teachers worked with me and made themselves available to help after the class ended. They assigned projects that made students think and not merely copy and paste something from google. School spirit lacked towards the end of my time at GHS, but that was due mainly to the change in principals. I feel that Grayson provided a great high school experience and wouldn't change a thing. My only advice- get involved! Actually doing something for the school makes for a better high school experience. -Alum '04
