I can't believe the realtors below did not know that answer to your question! If they took the time to actually look up an answer to your question they would know that this street is in East Grand Rapids and the taxes are EGR taxes and NOT Grand Rapids township. Your kids would automatically get into EGR schools. Be prepared for a much higher property tax bill than what you've indicated in your email.

Since the tax code is showing GR public, the only way to get into EGR schools is through school of choice and there are no guarantees as to whether or not you would get it.

If the house is located within the Grand Rapids Public School District, the only way your children can attend the East Grand Rapids schools is to apply under the School of Choice lottery program for an opportunity to send them to EGR. EGR is a popular district and many people apply, but very few of these applications are granted. There would be no guarantees that your children would be accepted. The best bet is to buy a home within the EGR school district.

We do have school of choice for for EGR it is very hard to get in, some grades are full. Wondering what the address is - you can call the school district to see if it is or not EGR. However if you let me know the address I can fin out for you.
