Transfer to a GRPS School

Thank you for making Grand Rapids Public Schools your choice. As a district, we pride ourselves on providing one of the largest comprehensive school choice selections for students in preschool through 12th grade. We invite families within our district and out of district to explore our school choices through the school transfer process.
