About 90% of female students come from far away, so various events are constantly held at the weekend. At Grier School, you will receive a good education in a beautiful, calm and safe environment.

The school has very strict requirements for the selection of teaching staff, so all teachers in the school are very qualified and experienced. Pupils are under the care of teachers around the clock, to whom they can turn for help in solving any problems that they have. Very close interaction between teachers and students.
