Mission and Goals

Mission Statement:

The Grantham School District serves students in grades K-6 and tuition students through an AREA agreement with the Lebanon School District for grades 7-12 as a New Hampshire Public School District. It is our desire that all students in the school district develop a passion for learning, become self-directed literate individuals, develop a willingness to continuously improve themselves, become responsible and contributing members of  society and to the democratic process, become informed decision-makers and problem solvers, become life long learners, participate in an educational process that blends social, emotional, physical and intellectual learning,  and prepares them for the global world in which they will live. Further, we believe that the educational process should be sensitive to the transition between schools and school systems, and reflect the values, cultural and social needs of the community.
To this end, our staff will strive to provide extensive educational experiences through utilization of balanced curricula that is comprehensive, flexible and increasing in complexity and depth.
