    "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."

    "My son views GMS as a prison because: teachers won't let them use the restrooms except during class switches. However if they are late to class they will get "strikes" which can add up to a detention. So nobody uses the restrooms all day. They can't sit where they want during lunch and have no recess. Thus, they have no way to socially mingle with their friends. They get no physical education if they participate in band, and if they are not in band, they only get 1/4 of the school year with physical ed if lucky. They actually count the time it takes to switch classes and claim that this meets their state physical education requirement. 12-13 year old boys could use some exercise to break up the day but they don't get it. Some teachers are nice, but many are callous and try to break these kids spirits. As a parent, I would add: There is very little critical thinking and hardly any writing that is truly evaluated. It is all rote learning for the tcap and uninspiring. My husband and I each have advanced degrees and place a priority on education, but this brute force method is not the way to instill a love of learning, quite the contrary."
