• staff quotes Grant Elementary School is one of seven TK-6 schools in the Petaluma City School District. Located 32 miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge in Sonoma County, our town is proud of our heritage as the “Egg Capital of the World,” where in 1875 Petaluma resident Lyman Byce invented the first chicken incubator.

    We still value and celebrate our agricultural roots with our annual Butter and Eggs parade. We maintain our close-knit, small town feeling and vibrant community with a newly renovated downtown of work/live spaces, shops, theatres, and restaurants.

    Grant parents and volunteers along with other school sites strongly support our schools and have passed parcel taxes to maintain and extend school programs in 2004 and 2007 with voter majorities of over 70%.  In 2014, a Bond Measure passed to support 21st Century infrastructure and facilities.
