Principal's Message

It is with great pride that I welcome you to Grant Middle School, home of the Grizzlies, where our goal is to provide the best education for your child.  Our school consists of approximately 600 sixth through eighth graders and fifty staff members. This is an exciting time of continued change as our nation and state have adopted Common Core Standards and Smarter Balanced Assessments including the addition of Next Generation Science Standards.  

The Grant staff strives to build a positive school culture emphasizing our learners demonstrate Respect, Responsibility, and Resourcefulness.  We believe that each of us is responsible to be our best in all that we do on a daily basis.  Our staff’s commitment to our students is what sets them apart from many other educators across the state.  It is not unusual to see our teachers working with students before and after school providing them with additional opportunities to learn.  In addition, as you browse this website, you will notice the numerous opportunities for our students to become involved in music, sports, the after school program, MESA, and other school sponsored clubs.

Grant Middle School is a wonderful place to teach, learn, and play.  A great contributor to our school’s success is the strong support of our parents, our school personnel, district administration, and our school board.  This collaborative effort is essential for our continued growth.   

Therefore, on behalf of the faculty, staff and administration, thank you for supporting our school.  We hope you enjoy our webpage and the information it provides.  Please feel free to contact us for any further information.
