Grand County is located in the heart of the Rocky Mountains immediately west of Rocky Mountain National Park. It is approximately 85 miles from Denver and in the middle of a spectacular recreation area. The East Grand School District serves six rural communities covering an area of 712 square miles. These communities are: Fraser, Granby, Grand Lake, Hot Sulphur Springs, Tabernash, and Winter Park.
The District is one of the few in the state that is on a successful 4-day school week, with classes meeting Monday through Thursday. The calendar has 144 student/teacher contact days and exceeds the contract requirements set by the Colorado Department of Education. The school year generally begins the week prior to Labor Day and ends the last week of May/first week of June.
