Welcome to Grand Rapids High School  

Home of the Thunderhawks!

We believe that interscholastic activities are an integral part of our school's total educational program. The activities program is a complete extension of our basic educational philosophy of preparing students to become productive, contributing citizens of their community.

We believe that participation contributes to the development of health, happiness, physical skills, maturity, sportsmanship, decision-making skills, self-confidence, and self-discipline of each participant.
