Mission Statement and Vision

“Whatever it takes for student success”

Grant High School will be recognized as a school of exemplary achievement. We will establish a learning community where teachers and staff know the students by name and aggressively nurture their academic growth in the classroom. We will instill in each student the desire to become a lifelong learner and responsible citizen, both in and out of the classroom.

We, the Grant High School faculty, believe that the purpose of education is to direct and encourage the total development of each individual student mentally, physically, socially, and emotionally by providing a positive learning environment through successful learning experiences. We also believe our educational process should involve continual change for the purpose of improvement as we identify changes occurring in our American society. We believe that the school should seek to develop the students' potential for becoming productive members of the twenty-first century by providing for them as many varied experiences as possible within the limitations of the community resources. These wholesome and meaningful experiences will come from curricular and extracurricular activities as well as the personal guidance of a well-trained, dedicated staff in order to provide opportunities to develop the knowledge and skills to become self reliant citizens who are able to compete in a global economy, as proposed by the Louisiana LEARN Commission. We further believe that it is our responsibility to achieve these goals through promoting cooperation among the school, home, and community.
