Middle School Listings

GRPS has four comprehensive middle schools, also known to some as “junior highs.” Unlike elementary or K-8 schools where students typically remain in a self-contained classroom for all of the subject areas, comprehensive middle schools operate like high schools where students transition to different classes throughout the day with multiple teachers. Middle schools offer comprehensive athletics and after school programming.
