Wells Elementary houses students in grades Preschool through 5th grade and the cafeteria, which operates National School Lunch/Breakfast programs staffed by two full-time district cooks.  Preschool is a full-day program for children ages three and four with separate transportation provided.   

Grayville Junior High/H.S. operates on a traditional period schedule and is departmentalized by content areas. The district is in close proximity to both Frontier Community College (FCC) in Fairfield and Wabash Valley College (WVC) in Mt. Carmel allowing high school students the opportunity to take courses or participate in programs working towards certification on campus. Grayville H.S. also works closely with FCC & WVC to provide dual credit course opportunities, as well as online courses for high school academics. The district continues to offer a nationally recognized agricultural education program and FFA club at the Sr. High School.

Grayville Schools offer extracurricular opportunities for students, which enhance student learning outside of the classroom. Currently, students in grades 5-8 are eligible to participate in basketball, baseball, cheer, softball, volleyball, track, and cross country sports.  Scholastic Bowl and band are also offered to junior high students.
