Granton Area School District is attracting new families and serves as a model of student excellence for communities everywhere.
We provide the highest quality education possible while meeting the needs of ALL students. We do this by focusing on three things:
Ø Individual attention and small class size ensures that each student receives personalized education in a comfortable and nurturing, small classroom environment.
Ø Broad and innovative educational opportunities that include agriculture, environmental science, technical education, the arts and online distance learning offer students a world of opportunities.
Ø Engaging and supporting the community means education does not stop in the classroom – we use serving learning projects and local resources such as the library, pool and childcare center to enrich our students’ academic experience.
