Grandville Public Schools

Strong Schools, Strong Communities

Known for its committed faculty, Grandville Public Schools has been a premier public school district in West Michgan for more than a century.  We serve approximately 5,700 students in Young Kindergarten through 12th grade with seven elementary schools from Walker to Grandville to Wyoming.  We offer child care, preschool, Community Education and a transitional program for young adults with special needs.  We have one of the highest Advanced Placement course offereings in West Michigan.  New for 2017, the district is opening Pathways High School, a blended-learning educational option for 10th-12th grade students who are credit deficient.  Strengthening our schools strengthens our future workforce, helping develop talent right here in our district. The students and staff in Grandville are grateful to our voters for approving the Strong Schools, Strong Communities millage, which we are putting to good use for students.

District Mission

Improving lives by producing successful, life-long learners

Career Learning

We help students consider and connect with possible careers, build the skills expected in the workplace and learn about options after graduation, including college, technical training or going directly into the workforce. We offer career and technical coursework through Kent Career Tech Center, through elective offerings in our high school, and through one of the premier robotics programs in the country.In addition, our district is committed to partnerships with local businesses to provide students with insight and experience within many career fields. These include experiences both inside and outside of the classroom. Our 1:1 technology initiative provides students with the necessary tools to acquire skills needed to thrive in the 21st Century.    

Academics and Beyond

Strong academics are the basis for all of K-12 learning, beginning with literacy, mathematics, science, social studies. In addition to these areas, we engage students with a wide range of courses including Advanced Placement, Business and Careers, Manufacturing Technology,  Engine Technology, Web Design for Forensic Science, Computer Science, Marketing, the Arts, and certification to be an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT).  We take pride in the multiple opportunities our students can experience after school as well. We have a state of the art fitness center with a certified trainer on staff. In addition, we offer K-12 state, national, and internationally recognized Robotics Program and 29 varsity sport offerings that rank in the top 20 in the state of Michigan.

Early Childhood

Early childhood is a crucial time in children’s lives, a time when they engage in the world around them and learn all the basics they’ll use in school and beyond. Our Great Start Readiness Preschool classrooms help children prepare for school success.  We offer an all day every day young kindergarten experience as well as traditional kindergarten. We take pride in providing custom learning plans for every child.

Support for Students

Most students will need a little help at some point in their schooling. They might struggle with a particular subject, an assignment, or a life challenge for themselves or their family. We work hard to support students so they succeed, including hiring the best staff to assist them. In addition, we have a comprehensive multi-tiered system of support that ensures every child experiences the essential knowledge and skills needed now, for the next level of learning, and for life.  Additional supports are provided when a student needs intervention and additional time to learn what is essential.

How Grandville is currently using the funds generated from the voter-approved millage:

  • We have reduced kindergarten class size across the district to the low twenties to provide stronger attention to literacy and math essentials
  • We have established a comprehensive mental health support system by adding certified mental health coordinators to service our students and families
