I am a student in 5th grade at this school. It is amazing! People are always willing to become friends, and it is a very inclusive learning environment. However, due to the COVID-19 virus, it has been harder to interact with friends, and people outside of your `house` are not allowed to interact with you at school.

I have three boys who attend Graland. I highly recommend this school. The faculty and leadership team exceeded my expectations. My children receive personalized instruction with a focus on the entire child. I could not be more pleased with our experience.
