Granite School District

The Granite School District spreads across central Salt Lake County, Utah, serving West Valley City, Taylorsville, South Salt Lake, and Holladay; Kearns, Magna and Millcreek Township; and parts of West Jordan, Murray and Cottonwood Heights. About 67,000 students are enrolled in its programs ranging from kindergarten to twelfth grade. It operates 8 high schools, 16 junior high schools, 62 elementary schools, as well as several specialty schools. This makes Granite the second largest school district in the state of Utah behind Alpine School District in Utah County. Other school districts in the area include the Salt Lake City School District and the Murray School District.

History

The district was created in 1904 with 4,258 students.[1] Its name and original boundaries were taken from the Granite Stake of the LDS Church, which at the time spanned nearly the entire breadth of the Salt Lake Valley from Mill Creek in the east to Hunter in the west, and from roughly Sugar House in the north to Bennion in the south.[2]
