    I think GFMS is a great school because it has a combination of caring teachers a supportive PTA and a principal who truly looks out for the best interest of the students. That is a winning formula!

    GFMS is are wonder school. I am a formal student there and during my time their i had prefect attendence and straight A's all three years. But sometimes the teacher didn't seem to both much with the failing student that needed the help but other than that the school was great.. )

    All the children should be cared about and treated fairly without taking into consideration what level they are on in the education/financial ladder.

    GFMS is an awesome school. My daughters go to this school and have accomplished so much. Most of the teachers are alwasy so eager to help the students when in need and the programs offered are fabulous. However when it comes to athletics the coaches only have tunnel vision.

    What a fantastic principal Granite Falls Middle School has! He is a great leader to the teachers and the students. My son is currently as this school and loves being there. He has had perfect attendence for two years and I contribute that to a great experience at this school. He is an 'A' student and has already taken the SAT and scored 47% higher than most college bound students and he is only in middle! Thank you Granite Falls Middle School for helping my sons future.
