Small school, BIG dreams!

East Leonard Elementary School is a neighborhood school on the northeast side of Grand Rapids. It is located on top of a hill overlooking our beautiful, diverse city. 

East Leonard is a small but mighty school. Because of this, our staff learn each child's name and develop strong relationships with scholars in every grade. The team at East Leonard works collaboratively to provide a safe, caring, and supportive environment for all children. We believe that all scholars at East Leonard are important and are the responsibility of every staff member. We work to understand the academic and social needs of every scholar. Scholars receive small group instruction based on their needs. If you are looking for a school that will give your child the personalized attention they deserve, East Leonard is the right choice!

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.
