Grant is a preK-5 Title I school located in south central Casper. The school serves about 230 students, including preschool. Some students live within walking distance, but more than 60 percent of students choose to attend Grant from other areas around the district. The school has a strong focus on reading, math and writing, as well as a dedicated and caring staff that works hard with students and their parents to create the foundation for educated, caring and productive citizens.


Grant empowers students to excel in academic areas as identified in the NCSD Essential Curriculum. Grant uses a scientifically based, researched reading curriculum along with the Literacy First assessments and framework to guide student learning. Skills are learned on a continuum that emphasizes phonological awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency and comprehension. Step Up to Writing and Harcourt Language address a variety of writing genres and language mechanics. Grant also uses the district adopted My Math Program to help students make connections with mathematical concepts and problem-solving through a standards-based, hands-on approach to math. The Go For It! Seven Keys to Success program is new and exciting for our school this year. Our goal is to share the success of the keys with students, parents, staff, and community. We also incorporate a positive behavior approach throughout our school. Grant is working on a continuous school improvement model and aims to excel in literacy and math while promoting a safe and healthy school culture to support a high performing learning system.


Students may participate in Student Council, Geography Bee, Chess Club, Lego Robotics, and Missoula Children’s Theater. Fourth- and fifth-graders may participate in volleyball, basketball and track through the Casper Recreation Center. A breakfast club for advanced students as well as students who need extra support is available before school, and a homework club meets during lunch and after school.


Preschool is available for children ages 3 and up. Families must meet income guidelines. Students are screened by the Child Development Center or the preschool teacher before being placed, and the students most in need are placed first.

Children must be potty-trained before starting in the program, and parents must agree to volunteer five hours a month in the classroom.


Classes at Grant run from 8:45 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Breakfast is served at 8:05 a.m., and before-school activities begin at 8 a.m. After-school activities and Extended Day programs end no later than 5 p.m.
