Failing grades are down at Grand County High School. Overall, there were 101 failing grades in the third trimester of the 2017-2018 school year, down from 110 in the 2016-2017 school year, according to campus administrator reports from the May 16 school board meeting.

While the school saw small increases in students failing English, math and social studies, a significant decrease in failing science grades made up for the other subjects. While 39 students failed science in the 2016-2017 school year, only 22 failed in the 2017-2018 school year.

Caucasian and Native American students saw a drop in failing grades, while Latino students saw a slight increase.
