    My sister goes to this school and loves it! But she's saying some "big" girls are mean to eachother so I decided to ask her for more. She says they are mean on the bus.. With this being said the BPS needs to take action. But I give it to the Grew! Great school but some disrespectful children.. But no one can change that! Sincerely A sister who cares

    I have a daughter in the school currently. I had 2children in the past. My son is now a senior at BLA. My daughter first year in Boston Latin. The teachers at the grew support the children. My son won an award and was in all the papers the Grew hung his picture on the wall with the news article. His teachers sent him card at home. Teachers let my daughter now if she needs anything the Grew is there for her. My youngest daughter loves the school. All the teachers and principal are very supportive. The children come first. they give monthly awards Multicultural day end of year cookout and much more. I will be very sad when my third grader leaves. I give the Henry Grew school an A+. They believe in all the children and go above and beyond They let them know they are all special.
