Open Quote If your child enjoys full time harassment from fellow students and bullying in all capacities with no staff support this is an excellent choice. The academics are good if you don't mind having to physically defend yourself like a prison inmate. Close Quote

Open Quote Grafton provides a challenging academic environment and has dedicated teachers. There are numerous extra curricular activities for students to participate in. The student body is not huge so the kids have the opportunity to know each other. There is also a lot of school spirit.

Athletic teams are generally good to very good and the band is the largest on the Peninsula. I have one student in school now and one who went to Grafton for 4 years and is now in college. The college student was well prepared for higher level academics and with the credit received for AP courses will easily complete the requirements for a bachelors degree in 4 years. 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.
