~ 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 3,000 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.
