FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Welcome to Granite Mountain School!
We are pleased that you have chosen to send your child to Granite Mountain School in Prescott Unified for 5th and 6th grades. We offer the students in our community an innovative and rigorous educational opportunity, for every student, that is designed to meet the unique educational and developmental needs for students at this age level. As a former middle school campus, we are able to offer our students a variety of choices and options not typically available to 5th and 6th graders. At the same time, our teaming model creates a small school environment for our students.
Granite Mountain School is one of only 9 schools in Arizona and 149 schools Nationally and Internationally to have received STEM certification through AdvancEd School Accreditation. It is through the expertise of our high calibre, professional staff that our students experience a STEAM-infused (Science Technology Engineering Arts and Mathematics) educational experience. Students will have opportunities to learn grade-level content material, integrated with critical thinking and applied to real-world situations. In addition to our rigorous grade-level curriculum, we also offer an accelerated honors curriculum which provides the appropriate challenge for our highest performing students.
At Granite Mountain School, every student is provided an innovative, character-rich education in a safe environment. Our students have the opportunity to explore STEAM, Band, Orchestra, Choir, PE, Art, Computers, Intramural Sports, and a wide range of before and after school club activities. Additionally, our technology-integrated classrooms prepare our students for college and career readiness in the 21st Century.
It is our sincere pleasure to be able to ensure that every student at Granite Mountain has the opportunity to learn and succeed at high levels with professionals who are focused on the individual needs of every child. We look forward to being a part of preparing your 5th & 6th grade students for their future educational success during their intermediate school years.
