    Overall Experience: If I had the choice, I would absolutely attend Grimsley all over again. The academics are what you make them, they can be extremely rigorous or very laid back. I have had the opportunity to knock out many classes that I would've had to take in college by taking AP courses. Grimsley has a very diverse culture and there is a place for everyone to fit in. The school spirit is one of my favorite things especially during Grimsley/Page week. The whole school comes together for athletic events and it is one of the greatest experiences. Most of the teachers genuinely care about their students and put in many extra hours to ensure that we succeed.

    Food: The food is not great but it could be worse. We have a brand new cafeteria and it is extremely nice. There are always many options for food and the prices are reasonable.

    Administration & Policies: The administration is great. They are very helpful and proactive when issues are brought to their attention. The dress code is always very strictly enforced at the beginning of the year but as the year progresses it is hardly paid attention to.

    Sports & Fitness: School spirit is a huge part of Grimsley. During football season, the stadium is the place to be every Friday night. Students are extremely involved in school spirit and football is definitely the most popular sport. The facilities are very nice and many of them have been newly renovated.

    Teachers: Most teachers are outstanding, with the occasional few that simply do not present the information they are supposed to. Overall, the teachers are great. They are very good at making sure they have tutoring outside of classroom hours. Most of the teachers teach from the front of the room with technology, there is very little textbook work. Most of the teachers have great communication skills. Teachers are usually accurate in grading consistently and when they aren't, it is quickly brought to their attention and resolved.
