    All of my 8 brothers and sisters went here. We've watched it grow and develop. It is still a great school. I am proud to say that My niece and nephew go there now and I feel blessed that they get to experience the same school that I did.

    My children have attended private and public school GRGS is by far the most encompassing enriching learning environment they have been involved with. This is a small town school with a deep understanding of community and diversity. The atmosphere is pleasant and extremely conducive to learning. Children are given the tools needed to excell not only educationally- but socially morally and emotionally. Physical fitness and nutrition is also something I was pleased to see an emphasis on. These kids are among the few in the state that have daily phy ed. Not only are parents and wonderful teachers and faculty involved this entire community rallies this school. Small town living at it's best! I could not be more proud for my children to be a part of the GRGS family!
