Theme School Listings

GRPS has twelve “theme schools” each with customized curriculum and unique academic offerings centered around a certain theme (i.e. environmental science, arts/music, Montessori, dual-immersion, college prep, etc.). Applications are required, admissions criteria apply to four schools, and seats may be limited. Some limited attendance area seats are available for students who live in the immediate neighborhood around a particular theme school.
