Grand Rapids High School (GRHS) is a school of over 1,300 students with more than 200 courses that offer our students excellent educational opportunities. Few institutions of learning rival the academic, athletic, and fine arts opportunities available to the students of GRHS, and all while maintaining an unmatched sense of community and personal attention.
In addition to high school course work, students can also earn college credits while at GRHS through UMD College in the Schools (CITS) and International Baccalaureate (IB). GRHS is proud to be the only rural district in Minnesota to offer the IB program.
Other options available to prepare our students for post-secondary opportunities include the Career Pathways program. The Career Pathways classes are designed to train students for careers in healthcare and manufacturing fields. Students receive college credit from Itasca Community College, make connections in their fields, and have real-world experience opportunities with internships.
We believe that all students can learn and we are prepared to work collaboratively with colleagues, students, parents, and the community to achieve this shared educational purpose.
At GRHS, students have many ways of earning college credits while completing the credits necessary for graduation. One of those programs is College in the Schools (CITS). The CITS Program lets students earn college credit while staying on campus.
On Monday, October 25, the ISD 318 School Board approved naming the GRHS practice football/lacrosse field based on the recommendation of a naming committee that had been assembled. The field will be known as the Tom Drazenovich Field. Tommy D was known for his impact on and off the field.
