The mission of the Granite Falls School District is to inspire and facilitate a passion for life-long learning and the pursuit of excellence in every student, every day.
February 2017 Bond
We are in the early conceptual stages for a bond resolution that will run in February 2017 with the following initiatives:
(1)STEAM/CTE modernization at the Middle School;
(2)Security upgrades district-wide;
(3)Grandstand addition at the High School.
The improvements for the Middle School would include: Environmental Science classrooms; Family and Consumer Science and Life Skills classrooms, modernization, and additions; Engineering, Design and Manufacturing classroom modernization; Digital Media modernization; Technology classroom improvements. The High School grandstand addition would replace the current seating and include covered stadium seating, with team locker rooms and bathrooms, an entry/exit tunnel for the teams, and storage areas… plus, so much more!!! We are still looking at areas to improve in our security and will keep you posted on our proposals. We invite you to provide your feedback through a Survey Monkey link and share your name and email to be a part of the electronic updates regarding the bond plans.
The entire bond initiative is a huge opportunity for the Granite Falls School District and our students. We encourage all of you to view the plans in depth and give us your feedback!

Mentor Program Looking for Mentors
We have several students that are on a waiting list. Do you have an extra 30-45 minutes a week? Do you want to give back to your community? Become a mentor! The primary role of a mentor is to promote positive self-esteem and success in school. A mentor is a role model that listens, encourages, and guides.
