Sustain the School!

The Annual Fund supports our Montessori public school’s pioneering programming and educational materials. The state funding we receive doesn’t cover the full cost of our experiential learning opportunities, so we turn to our community to support our life-changing work.

Our Annual Fund Goal: $120,000 by July 2020

GRS is an unique school with an award-winning curriculum. We are proud to be a tuition-free public Montessori institution, open to all students, and community-supported!

$30/month per student will allow us to reach our Annual Fund goal of $120,000!
