Grandview School was first opened in 1912 and has endured in our community for almost 100 years! We are a Kindergarten to grade 8 school of approximately 210 students, including an Autism Class and a large intermediate population due to the fact that we integrate the grade 7 & 8 students from Graham Bell School into our school. The school is built on 5 different levels so we are not wheel-chair accessible, but if you need assistance to enter the school, please let us know in advance. We also have a before and after school program operated by the Boys and Girls Club of Brantford. Community volunteers distribute healthy snacks to all students every Tuesday and Thursday.
We operate on the balanced day, which includes 2 forty minute nutrition breaks. The school schedule is as follows.
Opening bell: 9:05 AM
Nutritional Break #1: 11.05 – 11:45 AM
Nutritional Break #2: 1:25 – 2:05 PM
School ends at 3:25 PM
There is a high expectation for student achievement and behaviour. We focus on character attributes each month and educate students on responsibility and strategies to stop bullying. We have a caring and committed staff who are very diverse….sharing their strengths in academics, athletics, technology and school spirit. We are the home of “The Grizzlies” and proudly represent our school in many board sponsored events. We have an active parents group called The PIT Crew, who meet each month and support our students in many ways.
