    School Profile

    We are a "family-sized", inclusive school where staff and students all know each other and parents feel welcomed and involved. Children are expected to put forth their best efforts, and do so in a safe, caring, peaceful environment. The school is organized to meet the needs of kindergarten through grade six, regular and special needs students. Programming for special needs students occurs within inclusive settings and a district site program.

    Grovenor emphasizes academics and provides exceptional music instruction integrated throughout the curriculum. Daily physical education programming is a tradition at Grovenor, with programming being implemtented long before it became a requirement! Kindergarten to grade 2 students are introduced to Spanish Language and Culture through school-wide activities, environmental print and classroom conversations. Students in Grades 4 - 6 receive formal instruction in Spanish as a second language.

    At Grovenor School, we believe children learn at different rates and times and in unique ways. Students are intentionally challenged at their personal academic level and receive opportunities to experience success in a supportive environment that encourages learning. Expert staff empower students to become engaged learners and problem solvers.

    Together we DO make a difference - Volunteering and parental support are valued aspects of our school community. In partnership we work to support Grovenor students as they engage in their learning and begin understanding their individual potential. Our whole child focus provides direction for programming and support for students as they grow to become active, peaceful citizens and life long learners.

    Join us on our learning journey!
