School Notes

  • MIssion: Achieve intellectual excellence, build strong character, enrich learning through the arts and athletics, and prepare our students to be engaged citizens and thoughtful leaders.
  • Achievement: A great school never sits still. At Graland, achievement is not just about being number one. It`s about doing your personal best. We make it a point to acknowledge effort as well as success and reinforce the concept that it`s okay to try, and okay to fail. The important takeaway is the lesson learned through the effort (which often leads to future success). We believe skills like perseverance are highly valued in the 21st century. 
  • Diversity: Graland`s commitment to diversity and inclusivity seeks to support our entire community of adults and students, as well as foster students of strong character. Our diverse community is one that embraces and celebrates the rich and unique qualities of each individual, characteristics that may include differences of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, age, ability, and religion.
  • History: Graland`s rich history began in 1924 when concerned parents and teachers came together to create a school different from others of the era. From its earliest days, Graland`s approach to teaching was influenced by the philosophy of educator John Dewey, who believed in "progressive education" and an educational system adapted to the needs of children. As it was then, Graland`s focus today is on the whole child and on the development of a well-balanced individual of strong character who excels intellectually, athletically and creatively.
  • Facilities: Graland`s campus and facilities are impressive among independent schools in metro Denver and the latest addition, Fall 2016, is an innovative science, library, technology and learning center. Our classrooms feature the latest tools for 21st century learners and our seven-acre campus includes 2.5 acres of play space and sports fields, two playgrounds. Art studios, music rooms, drama studios, a state-of-the-art performing arts theater, a full-service kitchen and dining hall, a 32,000-square-foot gym, and a climbing wall ensure we can offer a well-rounded program for today's students.
  • Tuition and Financial Aid: To make certain all Graland students can fully participate in our program, tuition includes the cost of school supplies, lunch, snacks, trips, technology, sports equipment and other program-related expenses. Through a robust tuition assistance program and thoughtful inclusivity efforts, we are committed to ensuring that everyone in our community can have the opportunity to be part of the Graland experience.
