Exam Schedule

Second-semester 9-11th grade exams are Monday — Thursday, May 24—27. Two exams are scheduled each day.

  • The first exam begins at 8:30 am (NOT 8:35 which is our usual class start time) and ends at 10:00 am. Students must stay until 9:45 and may stay until 10:00 am. Students should arrive by 8:20 to ensure they are in their seats ready to begin at 8:30.
  • The second exam begins at 10:15 am and ends at 11:45 am. Students must stay until 11:30 and may stay until 11:45 am. 

Students are only required to be present for the exams they have scheduled (e.g. if a student has a first-period class and a second-period study hall, the student may leave for the day at 10:00 am.)

Buses will run on their normal morning schedules and will depart from GRCHS following the second exam.

Spring Break in Paris

If you are still interested in spending 10 days of Spring Break 2022 in Paris at a hotel 1 block from the Eiffel Tower to see the sights in and around Paris, please stop by Room 114 or email Madame at for a brochure and more information. You still have time to get your application in for this. Adults are also allowed to travel, and you do not have to be a current French student to travel. Bon voyage!

Part-time job with the football team

The football team is in need of 1-3 student managers to help organize equipment, film practice (with a camera and/or drone), potentially make highlight videos, and other activities to be determined. Hours would be in the morning during summer and after school in the fall. Students will be provided some Eagle football gear and will be involved on game days. Payment will likely be a stipend based on how much work is performed. Please email Coach Sundberg if interested at or stop by room 220.

Want to welcome a little more Spain into your home?

Our GRCS community has the opportunity to welcome 8 students from Madrid, Spain for 8 weeks this next summer/fall. These students (9th and 10th graders) are excited to experience life in West Michigan! They want to live with an American family and attend classes here at GRCS for a few weeks. Are you interested in Spanish culture? Perhaps you are studying Spanish and enjoy hospitality. If so, then this could be a great opportunity for you and your family! Students will arrive in Grand Rapids on August 6 and depart in early October. Stop in the ISP office (room 202 by the Prayer Wall) to talk with Mrs. Williams for more information or have your parents contact Mrs. Williams at or 616.574.5652.
