Zoom Call In Information:
Grant K8's innovative curriculum and dedicated staff of highly credentialed. experienced teachers set us apart. With the support of the parents through the Grant Community Foundation and Parent Teacher Association (PTA) Grant offers a full array of science, technology, engineering, art, and music courses to students from grades TK through 8.
The Grant K8 PTA and Grant School Community Foundation are both 501(c)(1) nonprofit organizations that provides vital financial assistance and support for the instructional, educational, and recreational needs of our diverse student body.
Many of Grant's programs simply don't exist at other public schools in San Diego -- and the PTA and Foundation work to bridge the district's widening budgetary gaps while facilitating resources critical for our kids to excel.
Our efforts are paying off: Grant K8's scores are among the highest in the San Diego Unified School District.
Any organization is only as good as the sum of its parts -- and that's why we've made it our goal to engage with every parent as we strive to make Grant San Diego's best public school.
Can't make every meeting? No problem. Can't make any meetings? We hear you.
Help where you can and in a way that suits your skills, competencies, and interests.
