    GHS is an OKAY school but some teachers have their "favorites" that they show more attention to. Another thing is Dress code. They will send your to In school detention or sometimes send you home if you're out of dresscode. Which is more important? An Education or Uniform? That's really the only rule they in force. Gun issues has also occurred. The school responded to this by installing metal detectors ONLY for visitors who come to the school NOT for students. *Being that A STUDENT was the one with the gun.

    Well as someone who went through major transitions at this school I am very disappointed in the school officials. I doesn't take long to realize that the "Grenada Band" is more important than academics. Teachers get in trouble if they keep students from going to band in order for them to finish their work. I graduated three years ago and it has gone downhill. GHS has a major drug problem and it needs to be addressed and anyone who gets their feeling hurt by random drug searches needs to leave. Another thing half of the baseball and football team are smoking pot among other things. The classes are not challenging b/c half the students can't read and the teacher has to stop teaching. These classes do not prepare you for college at a university or anywhere for that matter.

    This school district is not focused on the kids education...it's more of a minimum security prison that's focused on behavior modification than on academics. My experiences with the administration left a lot to be desired and many of the stories my child brings home about the classroom atmosphere are quite disturbing. I would not recommend this school district unless your child is in elementary school.

    Grenada High School is an ok school but the problem is that they seem to care more about dress code than anything. They trip out over the most rediculous things. I'm not saying it's a terrible school i'm just saying that they need to let up on the dress code rules a little bit.

    the work at this school easy and I need to be challenged.

    This has been a great school until recently. For the last few years this school had guidance leadership and vision; however recent changes in the principal and other top individuals in the school district have brought changes that are not very positive and definitely not student and academic oriented. The faculty and staff are top notch and the students have the potential to be the best anywhere but all of that is not emphasized anymore.

    Grenada High School's advanced academic classes are very helpful in college preparation. I enjoy the teachers. They always do their best to help us in anyway they can. Also our school band is very important to us. I believe the only real problem with the school is that there are some levels of favoritism to some students. Some students get away with breaking the rules where others can not. We will be getting a new principal this year. Hopefully he will be fair and make sure the rules are enforced as fairly as possible. We do have parents that play a strong role in our school but it would be nice to see a little more parent involvement. Overall the school is a safe and caring learning environment.

    Well Grenada High School is a good school overall and it's good that the parents as well as the teachers care about us. The principal Dr. Taylor overall is a fair man and I appreciate his effort and helping us to become a better school in the state. Teachers is giving us this 3rd 9 weeks test that is hard so we have to study and do our best.
