Kindling young hearts and minds for a lifetime of joyful learning.

At Grymes, curious students discover the spark that leads to lives of purpose, growth, and contribution.

Close-knit and child-first, Grymes is a co-ed, Junior Kindergarten through eighth grade independent day school where academic challenge and strong community values intersect within a nurturing, whole-child philosophy. Gifted faculty and staff, small classes, and a rural campus create a special place for children to do what they were born to do: explore, discover, create, work, and grow in their own ways, knowing that they are seen, known, and loved at every turn.
Grymes sees our kids' strengths and passions and provides the individual challenge and encouragement they each need to grow. They are getting opportunities here they wouldn't get anywhere else.

Grymes by the Numbers

Grymes is designed to give every student the attention and support they need to thrive. Students benefit from small classes, a low student-to-teacher ratio, and the support of a warm and close-knit community.
