    A great school the best teachers! A school that recognizes that building character and education are equally important to help kids grow for a successful future!

    Kay Granger is an awesome school. The princpal is Great the teachers rock and my kids loves to go to school.

    Granger is the best school a parent could ask their child to go to. It teaches them not only about math social studies etc. but teaches children how to have great character and in todays world that is very important. The entire staff is top rate and are the best around we are more than lucky to be Wranglers.

    We love this school. We moved into the area because of the school. There is such community in the school. Teacher and parents look out for all the kids. There is always parents up at the school volunteering. I could not imagine being at any others school.

    Granger has a committed staff and campus leadership and strong community/parent support. It's a fantastic school in a strong district.

    Kay Granger is a great elementary environment. There is a very real sense of community at our school. Not only to staff & teachers care about our children they care about the kind of citizens they will become as they move into the world. Personal responsibility is emphasized and striving for excellence is part of our motto. I've seen many teachers go above and beyond in support of their students' progress. No school is perfect but for a school of our size to maintain such high standards and keep a feeling of warmth and welcoming is quite an accomplishment.

    Awesome staff and teachers! Great community of parents! This is our 5th year at Granger and we have had a great experience.

    KAY GRANGER. I GIVE THIS SCHOOL A 5 STAR RATING. THIS IS A SCHOOL THAT IS 100% DEVOITED TO THE STUDENTS. ALONG WITH THEIR ABOVE AVERAGE TEACHING SKILLS THE ART AND MUSIC PROGRAMS ARE OUT STANDING. WATCHING MY GRANDDAUGHTER'S EXCITMENT EACH DAY TO GO TO SCHOO FOR THE LAST FOUR YEARS SAYS ALOT ABOUT HER SCHOOL TEACHERS AND STAFF.

    Granger staff and teachers create a great learning environment for my children. It is a large school but feels like a small community. The school is welcoming to parents and I feel my questions and concerns are always heard and addressed. We feel at home at Granger Elementary!

    I think Granger is amazing!!!! What is there not to love? This school has the most dedicated teachers staff and principal. The teachers are the best that you can get. I have loved all of my daughter's teachers. They have been so supportive and helped her grow each year. Because they build lasting relationships we have to get to school early every morning so she can "make the rounds" and say hi to all of them! The principal is incredible. One of the things my husband and I love about her is her support of all the activities. She is at every function on and off campus cheering the students on! The principal and teachers strive to set examples of good character traits and it's working because Granger is the National School of Character! Granger gives students many opportunities to learn how to help out their communities through charitable events. This is just a few examples of this extraordinary school.

    Why do you keep deleting posts that aren't so favorable? This site isn't worth the time if you don't show both sides.

    Kay Granger is the best school ever! I send my kids every morning knowing the will be safe and loved. The front office has the most precious people of all. My family and I had been very blessed to belong to this school. the principal is an amazing woman that teaches them character and values!

    Another wonderful year at Granger has come to a close and my children have continued to grow and flourish in character knowledge and compassion. Thank you to the principal for not only setting the example but hiring teachers with the same expectation. By the way my husband and I love the fact that sometimes she will share a personal snippet from her life showing the understanding she has for our situation as parents. She has consistently over the years at every Wrangler Round Up and Awards Ceremonies given credit for the success of our children by not only acknowledging the hard work the children have put forth but that by the teachers too. Granger has it all 1. The parent volunteers in the classrooms at performances and around the school is outstanding. 2. The teachers work hard by going above and beyond often setting the standard for the district. 3. The children care and will stand up for one another. This atmosphere was created when the school opened and continues today. It begins at the top (the Principal) and usually trickles down but not at this school...IT FLOODS.

    Our school is Wonderful they really push parent involvement and the kids love it! Their Field Days are top notch very fun for the kids! Also the way pick up and drop off is handled it runs pretty smooth once you learn all the rules of course! They do plays and the kids are so cute doing their acting! Most of the teachers are so sweet of course there is always a few that are missing the mark. The school does run like a well oiled machine I personally like it it keeps most kids in check. Also they really push caring for others and no bullying! We love our school for the Parent involvement they push academics the interactive learning field day caring teachers and an enthusiastic principal!

    The accusations reguarding the front office are quite presumptuous and lacks substantiation. At Kay Granger Elementary the front office staff strives to maintain a welcoming campus culuture. If you feel unwelome or have specifc cocerns.. Please Please Please address your concerns in person. Slandering names and suggesting staff lose their jobs on a website is very harsh.

    I Love the school they teach good values and morals. The education is good but parents still should work with the kids at home on anything they struggle in. Lets be real 22 kids to 1 teacher she is not going to give them private school teaching time as they have a ratio of 9 kids to 1. The school overall is good the front office staff on the other hand is very cold and rude.

    How nice that you can hide behind your computer screen and voice a generalized opinion when I am sure you have not had personalized interaction with every teacher on campus. If you are having an issue with a teacher as a parent you need to communicate that to your child's teacher not the online community. I know that the teachers at Granger care for and love EVERY child that walks through the doors of our school. They work harder than you can imaging to ensure that YOUR child is successful. I believe that the academic expectations progress of our schools and exemplary rating speak for itself. Not to mention that Granger is a state school of character and up for National School of character. If you are angry or upset communicate your concerns to someone who can help not the internet.

    Granger Elementary is THE BEST campus to enroll your child in. The education the teachers provide the students is top notch and far surpasses other schools that my children have been attended. The teachers there are absolutely lovely and are always bending over backwards to help my children out with their academic and social needs. They are also quick to respond to any question that I may have as a parent. Also there are many opportunities for myself as a parent to volunteer at the school. Which is phenominal. Not all schools are as welcoming to their parent volunteers as this one is. Overall I would give this school a million stars if you system would allow me to.

    Really narcissistic principal and below average teaching capacity have squandered the potential here. Look elsewhere for quality education and any concept of public education to be smartly implemented in the best interests of students. Sad.

    I love this school! The expectations for learning behavior responsibility and citizenship are above and beyond any other school that I have had my children in. The teachers are highly qualified and do not lower their expectations just to let kids "pass." In doing so the students rise to the occasion and excel! There are many opportunitites for parents to become involved in the classroom and after school activities. Although I can't volunteer during the day getting to know the staff through PTA meetings and extracurriculur activities has really shown me how much the people this school love kids! I wouldn't want my children to attend any other school!
