Welcome to East Grand Rapids Public Schools!
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!

As 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. 

As 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. 

To register your child for the 2014-2015 school year, please complete the necessary forms found here.

If you were unable to attend our May 21st Parent Informational Meeting, please see our presentation here.

If appropriate, please include the waiver, and email the completed forms to
