    Sports & Fitness: I played varsity soccer for 3 of my years at Grady before transferring to home school. It was a big power trip. The filed was great and the players by your side were even better we didnt win any state championships but it was very fun and competitive

    Extracurriculars: There are a numerous amount of after school a person can take part in. They even allow you to hang outside in the court yard after school while other schools make you leave the property.

    Resources & Facilities: Grady is one of the best places to come to if a child is having trouble in classes because teachers take their time and and stay after school for tutorials or even in the morning. They even offer students online classes if they cannot understand by just hearing it come out of somebodies mouth. Technology is great, they have as many computers as you could possible need.
