Could I said " the higher grades they are, the busy schedule they have"?
"They" should be referring to the same people in both cases - the people who have higher grades and the people who have the busy schedule. "They are" is incorrect, because they are people - not grades. I would rewrite this sentence like this:
The higher the grades they have, the busier their schedule is.
