Many of the programs offered at Grant K-8 School are non-existent at many San Diego public schools. Our extensive community of supporters work hard to ensure that we keep budget realities at bay while maintaining the resources necessary for our kids to excel. Your generosity helps to secure the programs that continue to make a difference for our children and our efforts are really paying off: Grant K-8 test scores are some of the highest in the district..
Grant K-8 PTA is focused on providing children with hands-on opportunities to experience art, and music. From our support for music programs to in-class art instruction, we provide students with enrichment experiences that result in a well-rounded educational experience.
With a legacy as a Math/Science Magnet school, Grant K-8 continues to focus its support in the areas of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math). The PTA and community support this effort through donations that fortify teacher education, laboratory supplies, and online learning programs.
