At Campus, it's Camp"US"! 

Embedded in a beautiful neighborhood next door to Grand Rapids Public School’s main campus, Campus Elementary has so much to offer your family.

We are proud to partner with Kent School Services Network to provide our families with a DHHS success coach, mental health clinicians, and a community school coordinator. We offer monthly PBIS celebrations and activities to showcase all the positive things happening in our school and with our scholars. We also offer Big Idea celebrations that focus on a monthly theme scholars try to implement every day. Additionally, we partner with the YMCA to teach scholars and parents about eating healthy. We have an amazing LOOP program that supports our scholars beyond the school day through engaging after school programming. We offer learning and teaching through the Social Emotional Learning (SEL) lens as well. 

Our amazing, dedicated teachers and staff help make Camp"US" the best place to learn and grow. Together we are better!  We strive to change lives one day at a time by giving students the tools they will need today to be awesome leaders of tomorrow. We believe our scholars shine brightest when they are positive, accountable, willing, and safe. These P.A.W.S. principles serve as a guiding light for our scholars and staff, helping to ensure each child is ready for their future! 

We have incorporated distance learning for years and are poised to be a leader in the district as a blended model of new technologies and old practices, giving our students the best of both worlds. Our 1-to-1 student technology device approach ensures that every student has the opportunity to learn inside and outside the classroom.
