Open Quote This school is wonderful! I pulled my daughter from a Puyallup School District School to go here and it was the best decision I've ever made when it comes to her education! The teachers love what they are doing and the fact that it's an Expressive Art school that is free makes it that much more appealing. The teachers spend so much extra time with offering Enrichment Classes, plays and the traveling dance team. My daughter is in 5th grade this year and we are really sad to leave Grant next year. Even though it doesn't have a great rating and it isn't in a good School District, it is by far way better than the high ranked school she attended in Puyallup. The school is so diverse, the parents are very involved, and there isn't any stereotyping going on. Take your child here and you will be very pleased! Close Quote

Open Quote School based on teaching through the Expressive Arts. Wonderful specialists in music, dance, drama, and the visual arts. All classroom teachers trained to teach content through the arts as well! Amazing school with warm, caring atmosphere and lots of enrichment opportunities including performances where kids can shine!

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.
