    The place to find the current test score data is winss.dpi.wi.gov/ Please view with skepticism any comment from a parent who would allow her own child to remain for 5 yrs. in a "horrible" school. Instead look at the scores school climate surveys and MPS website for current data. Negligent parents have a right to their opinions but that opinion has little validity in the world of concerned consumers.

    Regardless as to what anyone says Grantosa Drive schools is one of the best schools in the Milwaukee Public School District. Our school of one of the schools that is not on AYP and the only time that it was on the needs improvement list was two years ago for special ed challenges. The school has an extremely supportive staff who go that extra mile to ensure that each child is educated. I would recommend any parent to send their student to this school.

    I am the Spouse of a Teacher at Grantosa Drive Elementary School . The code of living anywhere as well as with anyone is ' If you don't have anything nice to say about anything then don't say anything at all '. Well that saying holds true here. I see by running across this survey there is only one persons view to criticize this school. If the school is that ' bad ' then whey aren't there more parents writing bad reports on this school ? My Spouse as well as all the other Faculty and Staff at Grantosa do a 'Great' job teaching all students who attend Grantosa . The Principal of Grantosa is a very experienced principal with years under his belt. And the teachers are very dedicated to the cause of teaching children and turning them into future role models in their community. T

    This school is horrible. I see why the test scores are so low. Dont send your child there. My child has been there for 5 years and may I say that he may be the smartest one there. But the teachers are out of order.
