welcome to THE 


Our school believes in a balanced approach to the development of the whole child. We foster critical thinking skills, nurture social and emotional growth, encourage respect for self and others, and inspire a lifelong love of learning.


Welcome To GASP

GASP (Grattan After School Program) is a nonprofit, licensed after school program serving Grattan students. 
GASP believes after-school is an extension of the school day and that learning does not end when the academic day is over. 

By working closely with the Grattan Elementary School staff,  GASP seeks to help students be more successful in school and life as they grow and move on from elementary school.
