GRPS has twelve K-8 schools serving students in either PK-8th grade or K-8th grade. K-8 schools operate under an elementary model with self-contained classrooms. The middle school classes do have some transitional classes whereby students switch classes like a middle school or junior high (i.e. math with in one classroom with one teacher, social studies in another classroom with a different teacher). K8s offer athletics and after school programing.
