As you review the school rankings data, please be aware that some of the information from certain demographics is missing. The reason for this omission is that the data has been redacted from the source data itself due to low population samples in these specific demographic groups.

Redacting data from low population samples is a necessary step to ensure the reliability and accuracy of the results, as small sample sizes may not be representative of the broader population. Additionally, this measure helps protect the privacy of individuals belonging to these demographic groups.

Open Quote We love Grant for our daughter. Yes the school has a diverse population, with some kids coming from challenging situations. The teachers at this school are amazing and fully committed to giving each kid what they need socially and academically. We are proud to have our kids at Grant and wish that more parents in the neighborhood would support their local school because we have had an awesome experience. Close Quote

Open Quote My daughter goes to Grant, and I have been so impressed with the responsiveness and dedication from the staff and faculty. In addition, it is refreshing to see an ethnically diverse school in Spokane. Not only are all races represented, they are welcomed and celebrated. My daughter went from wishing she was blonde like her friends in preschool, to commenting on her beautiful brown skin. Other friends of ours take their kids to the more "desirable" South Hill schools. Their girls have issues (in kindgergarten) with being teased and/or excluded for not having just the right clothes and toys. That hasn't been a problem for us at all. Also, my daughter has gone from being able to sound out a handful of words at the beginning of her kindergarten year, to reading at an advanced 2nd grade level just 6 months later. Her teacher continues to challenge her, making sure she is never bored. We couldn't be happier with Grant. Close Quote

About Students eligible for discounted/free lunch:

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides low-cost or free meals to students in U.S. public and nonprofit private schools based on household income. Those with incomes below 130% of the poverty line receive free lunch, while those between 130% and 185% qualify for reduced-price lunch. The percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch serves as a marker for poverty, as it reflects the socioeconomic status of families in a given school or district. A higher FRPL rate typically indicates a higher concentration of low-income families, suggesting that the school or district may face additional challenges in providing adequate resources and support for student success.

About Student-Teacher Ratio

Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
