Gray Stone Day School, as a parent of a former student, I would not recommend this school. The school staff brags about a high-quality public education filled with integrity, yet the leadership does not practice what they preach. Your child may even find themselves in a closed room with the 'Associate Director' who will refuse to let them leave until they tell him what he wants to here!!! Does this sound like a high-quality public education filled with integrity to you? Doesn't even sound ethical to me!!!

I believe that this is a great school and I would recommend it to anyone in the area. I currently attend the school and have seen no problems. The classes are moderately difficult, but no so much to be unbearable to most students. There are many clubs and the school offers all sports but football and wrestling. Our athletics have begun to be competitive to the other schools in our divison. As for teachers, all of the ones I have had have been terrific. Overall, I believe this is the best high school in the area.
