Open Quote Teachers and staff are passionate about their students. I believe they are some of the best teachers. Teachers have worked with me to help me understand where my students are struggling, they work to inspire students to be self motivated. When difficulty has happened they have done their best to resolve issues.
The one negative is the bus driver shortages that all districts seem to have currently. But Grayson is doing it's best to make drop off/pick up efficient and safe 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.
