Grant High School has become THE school district on the east side. I have many buyers that will only look in this school district. I can’t say I can blame them. The school is closing in on a 300,000 square foot renovation and expansion that will completely modernize the school upon completion this fall. So next year’s freshman class is in for a treat!
Upgrades include a new gymnasium, new turf and natural fields, all new interior classrooms and offices, a restored auditorium, and all new landscaping throughout. And to top it all off, the project is targeting LEED Silver certification and a Minority-owned, Woman-owned, or Emerging Small Business (MWESB) participation goal of 40%.
The school district is a significant driver of home values. Even if a person doesn’t have children in a school, they should be invested in their local schools because this will directly affect the value of their home. In the words of the Beach Boys, “be true to your school!”
