Grayling Elementary School
At GES, we strive to provide a first-class educational experience to elementary children in grades K-4. There’s no doubt that the CASD's children are “Growing to Greatness!” And at Grayling Elementary School, we believe that “The Sprout Starts Here." We also know that "The Sprout" starts well before kindergarten. GES houses the community-based Grayling Cooperative Preschool-GSRP and a NEMSCA Head Start program. Learn More
