WELCOME TO SWEET GRASS!
Thank you for visiting Sweet Grass School's home page. We are very proud of Sweet Grass and welcome the opportunity to share our school with you.
The school has a dedicated staff, enthusiastic children and a warm community all committed to creating a stimulating, positive learning environment. Along with a strong focus on academics, students’ learning is enriched through various clubs and special events supported by active parents.
At Sweet Grass we believe that having high academic and behavioral expectations and establishing a learning community based on collaboration will enhance student achievement and lead to greater success. Along with this, the active involvement of parents plays an important role in our students' confidence and willingness to take risks in their learning. Sweet Grass is a community school that is committed to providing a meaningful, challenging educational experience.
Sweet Grass School is proud to offer both regular programming and Spanish bilingual programming as the south west's site for the International Spanish Academy.
