Advertising Information for besthousingvalue

High school is a name used in some parts of the world, and particularly in North America, to describe the last segment of compulsory secondary education. It is preceded by primary education. High school is also the name used to describe the institution in which the final stage of compulsory education takes place. In the United States, high schools generally consist of grades 9, 10, 11, and 12, although the inclusion of grade 9 varies by school district.
Grimsley High School is a public school with grade levels eighth grade through twelfth grade. Grimsley High School is located in Greensboro, North Carolina. There are approximately 1859 students at this school. There are 114 teachers. This makes the student to teacher ratio 16 students to 1 teacher. In this school there are 865 male students and 994 female students making the female students exceed the number of male students in this school. The student ethnic body is comprised of 1115 white students, 59 Asian Pacific Islander, 41 Hispanic, 638 African American students and 6 Native American students.
The school's colors are blue and white, and its mascot is the Whirlie, a tornado-like symbol. The school's original color was purple, but because it was hard to find the matching purple when football uniforms had to be changed and because they faded easily in the wash, it was changed to blue and white. The mascot was originally the Purple Whirlwinds, but local papers found that to be a mouthful and shortened it to Whirlies.
Grimsley provides a strong academic tradition for its students, having been rated 67 in the nation by Newsweek in 2005. Grimsley has a large selection of AP, Advanced Placement courses that range from Physics and Chemistry to Art and Latin. In 1995 it also initiated an International Baccalaureate program that now offers most of the courses also offered under the Advanced Placement program in place.
The mission of Grimsley High School is to provide their students with opportunities to obtain the skills needed to become productive, responsible citizens, capable of making positive contributions to a changing society.
