District and school information[edit]

Currently, approximately 1,800 students attend Grant Community High School and the school is still growing, due to the amount of construction in the area. With a new addition and renovations completed in 2011, Grant is now a two-story 260,000-square-foot (24,000 m2) building that sits on 42 acres (170,000 m2) of property. Another addition is currently being built. The district obtains most of its students from four public elementary school districts (Big Hollow, Gavin, Stanton and Palombi) and three private parochial schools (St. Bede, Calvary Christian Academy, and St. Joseph Catholic School).
