Gruver Elementary School has a long-standing history of student achievement. While academics will always remain a priority, we cannot overlook the importance of relationships, respect, manners, work ethic, values, and high expectations. We want our students to be well-rounded and have the skills to be prepared for life. Together we can! Our students are successful due to the partnerships between our school district and the community. Stakeholders work collectively to provide for each student through fundraising, donations, and community partnerships. Relationships with parents are solidified through genuine and consistent communication. We have the best parents, hands down.

Our campus role models set high standards, and our students rise to the challenges. Our staff uses an individualized approach to instruction. They collaborate consistently to review student data and utilize formal and informal assessments to achieve the best schedule for each student. Teachers conference with students on goal setting so they are active participants in their growth. We don't have a magic curriculum, software, or program to credit our success. Each teacher has the flexibility to supplement the adopted curriculum to improve instruction. Technology is an increasingly important part of their future, so students are provided devices at a 1:1 ratio to acquire these skills. The staff implements available technology to help empower 21st-century learners.

Gruver ISD is a school family that takes pride in ensuring each student reaches their potential. We are blessed to work in a community as invested in our kids as we are!
