About Us

Welcome to Granite Ridge Education Centre, a unique Kindergarten to Grade 12 composite school located in Sharbot Lake and home of the Gryphons. We serve the areas of Sharbot Lake, Parham, Tichborne and surrounding areas. At Granite Ridge, we are committed to providing all students with a positive, supportive and stimulating learning environment in which all are encouraged to succeed.

Collectively we will work with and support all of our students so that they can achieve academic excellence through a variety of learning opportunities and programs that reflect students’ interests and needs. Individuals are encouraged to accept challenge and change, to strive to the best of their abilities and to appreciate the value of life-long learning. It is our aim that each student will face the future and its challenges with a positive attitude and confidence for success.

Parent involvement is important to us at GREC. We encourage our students' parents and guardians to get involved in our school by attending our monthly School Council meetings, special events for families and open houses. There are opportunities for volunteers as well. 

The 2020 school year is looking a bit different than usual and while our out of school activities are currently on hold we are looking to find ways to enhance learning opportunities and experiences closer to home. We look forward to the return of out of school activities and the ongoing support of Play! Gaming & Entertainment in Kingston.

Our commitment is to provide a safe, caring environment where people are treated with dignity and respect is unwavering, and is a whole school responsibility. Our students, staff and parent community take pride in our school, and strive to make everyone feel a part of our supportive family.
