Educating and inspiring each student to navigate successfully in a global community
East Grand Rapids Public Schools is located in the heart of a small neighborhood community in West Michigan. Three elementary schools, a middle school, and a high school provide approximately 3000 students with rigorous academic programs, excellent opportunities in the arts, and co-curricular activities that meet the developmental needs of the whole child. Our district stands out as a model of public school success and we have received many local, state, and national accolades, honors, and awards in our long history.
At East, our motto of a "Tradition of Excellence" is a commitment, a challenge, and an expectation.

Kindergarten/Young 5's 2014—We Are Enrolling!
we continue our planning for the 2014-2015 school year, knowing the
number of children enrolling
for Kindergarten/Young 5's is an important
part of our overall district budget planning process.
We encourage you
to please enroll your child on or before March 7, so that
we can ensure
an accurate student enrollment projection.
a district we want you to know that we are ready for your child, rather
than ask if your child is ready for us. Our commitment to you is to
provide an engaging and nurturing environment for your child that
includes highly qualified and caring teachers, and to educate the whole
child. The State requires all
children to be five years of age on or before October 1, 2014, in order to be eligible for next year's class.
