What's Happening at Garden Grove?

  • All students need to be at school and in their classrooms by 8:10.


  • Carlitos Nunez, Delaney Kutcher, Alden Ta, and Kylie Rubino presented "The Kids Teaching Kids Science" program to the Board of Education on March 10, 2015.  This program allows students in grades   4-6 the opportunity to provide demonstrations and investigations of scientific concepts to every student at this school. The purpose of the program is to increase comprehension and participation in our monthly science explorations in our Exploration Center. Another goal is to infuse important science concepts into a student friendly delivery system that fosters engagement and enthusiasm for every student in every classroom at every grade level.


  • 85% of all Garden Grove's 5th graders scored proficient or above on the CST Science Assessment!


  • 110 Garden Grove students had Perfect Attendance from  2/1/15-3/27/15


  • As of  11/17/14 the Tracy gate will be locked after Kindergarten has been dismissed at 1:05.  The gate will not be re-opened due to traffic congestion.  Please pick up students in the front of the school or arrange for another pick up area.


Garden Grove is proud of the weekly classroom awards earned by students that exemplify the philosophy of Garden Grove IMPACT Academy. Student recipients are eligible for a monthly drawing to earn "Time with the Principal" and a "Golden Paw Spirit Stick".
