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 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.

About Immunization Rates:
Kindergarten Immunization Rates: This graph shows the percent of students in the school who have all of the required doses for the vaccine type for kindergarten entry (complete). The following vaccines are required for Washington State kindergarten entry: DTaP (Diphtheria, Tetanus and Pertussis), Hep B (Hepatitis B), MMR (Measles, Mumps and Rubella), Polio and Varicella (chickenpox). The data comes from schools reporting to the Department each school year. Schools report total counts of students based on each student’s Certificate of Immunization Status, which is parent-reported and is not health care provider verified. The goal line is the national Health People 2020 target of 95% completion for these vaccines for school age children.
Protected Students: The number and percent of students in the school reported to have all required vaccinations for their age and grade.
Students with plan: The number and percent of students in the school with a temporary approved plan for getting caught-up on required vaccinations. These students can remain in school if they follow this plan.
Students with exemption: The number and percent of students in the school reported to have any exemption type for at least one vaccine.
Unknown: The number and percent of students whose immunization status is not known. These students do not fall into any other category – they may be missing required vaccines, but have no temporary delay plan or exemptions. Students with no signed CIS on file are also counted here.
