Though many teachers and authoritative figures aren't particularly supportive towards students, there are enough staff that genuinely care about the student population and make the school much more bearable. The culture that has emerged from Grady is truly phenomenal and there's enough support of the non-traditional approach that many students have. Grady is a very "artsy" school and emphasizes students being able to showcase their thoughts and emotions, but not every teacher honors this idea. Honestly, I wouldn't want to attend any other school because Grady has a lot of passion and spirit behind everything we do.

The atmosphere is one of a kind, which is why I love this school. The athletics department is one of the best in the state. The student culture is very active and vibrant.
