Grassland Middle School Ratings & Reviews
As a previous student, I would view this school as prison. Kids do not get to sit where they want at lunch and are punished with "silent lunch" when talking too much or trying to communicate with friends. There is a minimal amount of teachers who actually WANT to help you. They just want you to do well on the TCAP tests but other than that there is nothing. There is no creativity in the classroom and no socializing among students besides in the hallway between classes (which is your only time you are allowed to go to the bathroom). Middle school is a bad experience for everyone, but Grassland makes it exceptionally miserable.
I had two children attend Grassland Middle school in Williamson County (2006 - 2014). Our experience was very disappointing. My children were not challenged academically. I even called the principle to discuss ways my children could be challenged and received a call that the assistant principle would be in touch. I am still waiting for the call. My children never had home work and made great grades without studying. The only positive I can take away from our experience is Grassland is zoned for Franklin high School. My child is now is AP and honors and is being challenged . I would not recommend Grassland Middle for parents moving to Williamson County. Poor teachers and the Administration does not have your child best interest and avoids talking to parents.
Grassland Middle overall is a phenomenal school. I was in 6th grade last year and I had terrific teachers. I've heard from the kids in 7th and 8th say the teachers aren't great. The schools dress code is a little ridiculous. One of the only problems at the school is that there's no recess which kids need at my age.P.E is good but you don't have it all year and some kids don't even have at anytime I'm the year! There are tons of sports and other activities for the kids.The bus routes need to be changed there so overcrowded! Overall grassland is a great school! GO GENERALS!!!
This is a phenomenal school, with an excellent academic and athletic program. Coming from a highly rated private school in our former town, I would rank GMS as equivalent or better in many regards. The teachers care, and the parents are highly involved.
My son just finished 8th grade after three great years at Grassland Middle School. With only one exception, the teachers were wonderful. My only complaint is the lack of recess where kids can be kids, blow off steam and expend some pent up energy.
