Hello,

We may be moving to the GP area and really like the Grosse Pointe Park and Grosse Pointe areas. We have small children who will be starting elementary school in the next few years and are wondering if anyone has information/thoughts on the various elementary schools in the area.

Thanks!

Grosse Pointe Public School System

Defer, Trombly and Maire are all GPP elementary schools, Maire is the main one in the City (just a few blocks of the Park feed into there). All of GPP and GP City feed into South HIgh School.

Lots of great preschools as well in the area, the library website has a list of preschools as well.

We are in the Park and happy with our neighborhood school.

Thanks for the information. If you don't mind me asking, what school do your kids go to? Did you pick a school and then try to find a house in that area or find a house first?

Do you know if any of the elementary schools have multi-age programs, etc?

Thanks again!

One of my children is at Trombly, which does have a grades 1-2-3 class. It's the smallest school in the district with two grades per class. I believe it's also the most diverse, which isn't really saying too much. There is also a magnet program and a gifted & talented program -- I think one is at Maire and the other at Defer. If you dig thru the website in my prior post you'll find info. on both.

We moved here from out of state during the summer, so we found a house to rent first, then saw what school we'd be at. Right now we are looking to buy a home, and I'd be happy with any of the three elementary schools (I know people with kids at all three). I like the area south of Jefferson because it's almost all residential (Fairfax Market might be the only retail) and it's an overall quiet neighborhood.

Good luck in your search! Feel free to PM me if you have any other questions.
