When choosing a school for your child there are many factors to consider and it isn’t a decision that should be taken lightly. Luckily, Grand Rapids Public Schools will be hosting the School Choice Expo and Family Harvest Festival which will help parents find the school that is right for their child. This event will be taking place on Thursday, October 18 from 4-6 PM at the Gerald R. Ford Academic Center. Find out what you can expect by attending.
Grand Rapids Public Schools offers a wide choice of schools throughout the West Michigan area. Parents have the option to choose from Theme Schools and Centers of Innovation with a variety of curriculum and subject specialties.
