    Food: I typically do not eat school provided lunches, however, by students reviews, the four lunch line is the most renown serving pizza, fries, tacos, and burgers.

    Administration & Policies: Administration is highly effective at my high school. We are constantly reminded of school rules and dress code to insure that students do not disobey. Once students violate these rules and policies, warnings are issued followed by administrative punishment after a second encounter.

    Teachers: Grady definitely have some of the best teachers students could possibly obtain. Most go above and beyond to excite their students about learning their material. They also have regular afterschool tutorials for all students that need extra help, extra credit, or anything they might have missed in class.
