Founded in 1947, Grymes Memorial School sits atop 42 acres in a rural setting that serves families from more than five surrounding counties — families of remarkable economic diversity, and whose children reflect a wide range of ability.
NURTURING CHARACTER, BUILDING THINKERS, CULTIVATING CREATIVITY, FOSTERING COMMUNITY, LAUNCHING LEARNERS
Our Statement of Philosophy
We nurture the character of every child, emphasizing honor, respect, responsibility, and kindness.
We build curious, analytical, and tenacious thinkers through a thoughtfully designed curriculum.
We challenge students to take risks, whether solving a math problem, developing a scientific hypothesis, or writing a poem.
We cultivate creativity across all disciplines. Students discover their voices and grow in confidence as they explore varied means of expression.
We foster community by providing a warm family atmosphere that allows children to be children even as they grow and flourish as students.
By developing students of good character, who have built a strong foundation in thinking skills, who have found their voices through intellectual and creative outlets, and who are well-rounded in a caring community, we launch learners in pursuit of meaningful lives.
