Learn more about Grant Elementary School.

Mission

Grant School is a student-centered place for learning. Teachers focus instructional strategies to best meet the diverse learning needs of each child. Character is the key to success at Grant School. The Owl Way, our character education theme, is rooted in the lessons we do every day. In addition, we implement numerous fun and educational activities to foster and promote great character. We also implement New Jersey State Bar FoundationÕs Bully-Busting Curriculum school-wide.

Academics

The New Jersey Student Learning Standards guide our language arts, math, social studies, science and physical education curricula. We use various assessments to plan differentiated instruction, monitor progress, and to help match each student with the most appropriate books. Writer's Workshop guides our writing instruction. Teachers incorporate technology to enhance instruction each and every day.

Clubs

Beyond the classroom, we provide opportunities for positive student activism, such as Band, Orchestra, Student Government, Safety Patrol, and Peer Mediation. These, and other outlets, encourage students to become informed and caring young citizens of New Jersey.

Programs

The YWCA provides before and after school services at Grant School for a cost to the families.

Teachers

High quality teacher professional development contributes to the quality of instruction at Grant School. Our teachers continually expand their own instructional knowledge and skills, which in turn, improves student learning and achievement. The district offers professional development opportunities to support professional growth. Teachers are also provided with opportunities to attend various best practices workshops and participate in Professional Learning Communities.

Supports

Grant School provides Supports and Services for English Language Learners and Students with Disabilities. We provide intervention services through a Basic Skills program, and use the Intervention and Referral Services process to assist those who are struggling in school. Our teachers differentiate instruction and provide extra help to remediate and enrich instruction on an individual basis.

Health

Grant School employs a full time registered nurse who provides care for the students, conducts health screenings, and communicates with parents. The nurse also coordinates health related instruction for the students. Each child participates in 30 minutes of recess each day. The students and families have access to a guidance counselor for social and emotional supports as they pertain to the school environment. The students participate in 150 minutes of PE/health per week.

Parents

The Grant School Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) supports the students in countless ways. The PTO organizes fundraisers for student benefit, provides regular parental support for classroom activities, and arranges special programs for students and parents.

Facilities

Grant School has a full sized gymnasium, open area for play and playground. The school has a media center inclusive of books and computers for classroom use. Grant also has a music room and art room that house the respective programs.
