    With a school who's technology is better than Souths at this time; Grant has shown tremendous growth. Principal Alex has done an amazing job. I just hope he doesn't get sent to a high school. Grant is becoming a neighborhood school once again. Great after school programs and growing parent support. Thanks for a wonderful job.

    This school has just gone through a new innovation program that extends the day allows for more time to work on projects every student has an Ipad or Chrome book all the teachers are using the platforms so all work can be accessed on any kind of electronic device. Grades have improved and the school has recently gone green. The number rating might be easy pablum for the lazy to judge a school but it has nothing to do with what is going on inside this school. My son had great success here and I fought to have my daughter attend.

    Grant has potential lack of leadership has made it an environment where few students can thrive. I don't feel safe having my student there and am bombarded by other parents wh tell me the same thing. It has been the worst school experience I have ever had. Bullying is out of control and the principal takes no ownership of that. I heard horrible things about this school before going there and they have all come true. I am just heartsick.

    If you have not checked out Grant within the past 12 months you need to get into the school and see a truly exceptional neighborhood school in action. It is amazing to see what can be accomplished by a principal with a vision and enthusiastic & motivated teachers in small classes. Academic growth is impressive across the spectrum from the ELA students to the students from low-performing elementary schools up through the honors students. The school has received many grants -- e.g. all 8th graders do their classwork on Ipads. In elementary school my daughter consistently scored in the proficient range on her CSAPs. She did not like reading or writing. Now in 7th grade she does honors math and is rated "Advanced" in both math and writing CSAPs. She is very shy and timid but thanks to the small neighborhood school environment and encouragement from the teachers and staff she has blossomed into a school leader participates in school sports runs the school store and has even sung in front of the entire student body at the school's talent show!

    I am a community member in the Grant Community. I feel that Grant Beacon Middle School has done an amazing job building school culture and creating a positive environment among its students. The teachers are passionate about their positions and super caring to their students. The school provides students for lots of opportunities to explore many areas through their Enrichment Classes. Students' increased growth percentiles show that not only are students in a positive environment but also increasing their skills in math reading and writing.

    The team of teachers at Grant Beacon Middle School has proven extremely adept at getting every student to perform at their full potential. They have accomplished this even though the incoming student population is extremely diverse from both high-performing and under-performing elementary schools with high percentage ESL. Thanks to the educators' dedication and enthusiasm GBMS's Growth scores are tops among DPS middle schools.

    Grant has provided a good environment for my middle shool student. I find the teachers extraordinarily enthusiastic and energetic. The principal is engaged and committed and accessible. My son doesn't agree with all of the school policies but Grant serves a diverse demographic. Clearly Grant is on an upwards trajectory.

    My daughter is a 6th grade Honors student and I feel that Grant is the right place for her. I truly believe that the teachers and principal are doing an amazing job of helping these kids learn and grow. I feel parents should give this school a chance and not just go by test scores. She is learning a lot she is happy and engaged and she is safe. What more do you want from your neighborhood school?
