Open Quote Grant Middle School is an outstanding school. It is a prime example of misleading numbers and reality. My son has become a different child since we started. He got his life and childhood back. We as family have never been happier. I will start with the phenomenal staffs who are really dedicated to teach at school and not pass on homework back to the parents and children. They are willing to talk with us and not down on us. They spend much of their own time working to improve the school. Day in and day out, doing what they do best and still find a way to be positive.

Next the parents who are trying to make a difference of what become a victim system. These parents have to do what the government, state, and district should be doing. They volunteer time and money, unconditionally. They love, understand and appreciate the fact that at the end of the day it is beneficial to all of us. They do all this while still facing economical pressures daily.

The government, state, and district need to pay more attention to these facts and not to those who can donate more money. They need to realize that a school like GMS is what makes this country great. Allowing struggling parents and children to find their calling and actually do something about it. To treat a parent with respect for who they and not where they come from. To listen to those children who are at the most important cross roads of their lives. Giving an opportunity to a six grader to feel that the universe revolves around them.

Sincerely,
The Wardani's Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.

About Immunization Rates:
Each year, public and private schools across the state are required to send data about their students’ vaccination status to the Illinois State Board of Education. The state Board of Education compiles the data and shares them with the Illinois Department of Public Health. Public health officials use the data to monitor trends, track compliance with state immunization laws and identify pockets of vulnerability should an outbreak occur.
