9th Graders Tour Holmes

The varying academic and technological needs of Grenada High School students are met by rendering a broad range of concentrated instruction and courses to prepare students for the global world. Math and science courses are supplied for every level and a variety of languages are offered. For students requiring general or pre-college studies, Grenada High School offers special programs in addition to the regular curriculum for the pursuit of realistic goals.

STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) is a 9th grade workforce education course to prepare students for a global economy and future academic and vocational arenas. It incorporates 21st century skills through online learning in the classroom along with hands-on learning. Scientific and mathematical skills are applied to real world, industry-specific problems.

Dual Enrollment is a joint initiative of Grenada School District and Holmes Community College to increase educational opportunities for GHS students with 14 or more high school core units of credit. Students can enroll for college classes during high school and earn high school and college credits during the same school year, providing an accessible and economical method for students to begin their college careers.

Mississippi Virtual Public School (MVPS) is a web-based educational service offered by the Mississippi Department of Education to expand the boundaries of the traditional classroom. Students can access a wider range of course work, have more scheduling flexibility, and have the opportunity to develop their capacities as independent learners. MVPS can offer additional Advanced Placement (AP) course options, alternatives to traditional learning, enhanced educational technology use, and assistance to school districts in offering subject areas where teachers are limited or nonexistent.

GHS Video!-Voice narratives were created by GHS students.

Recognizing the importance of vocations that are vital to everyday life, the Grenada High School encourages students with interests and aptitudes in vocational areas to pursue courses at the Career & Technical Center. The Center offers a practical environment with sequenced programs in a variety of job skills. These programs are designed to prepare students for entry-level employment from high school or further specialty study in their chosen vocation.

Advanced Placement Courses are offered to scholastic achievers seeking college credit from high school classes in English, calculus, U.S. history, economics or biology. By completing the classes with a specified core, students receive college credit from the State College Board.

To further broaden their educational training, the school extends opportunities for growth and leadership through clubs and extracurricular activities. To foster a well-rounded individual, many fine arts and athletic opportunities are offered.

Grenada High School students have the option to participate in the Naval Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (NROTC). One of eleven units in Mississippi, the NJROTC Program strives to teach self-discipline and self-confidence and to instill an ability to lead and motivate. Classroom instruction emphasizes citizenship, basic naval orientation and history, sea power, and seamanship. Classroom academics are augmented throughout the year by drill teams, a running team, community service activities, orientation trips, and other military training. Participation in NJROTC can assist students who are competing for an ROTC Uni- versity scholarship or an appointment to the Naval Academy, Air Force Academy, or West Point and allows entry into the armed forces up to three pay grades higher than other enlistees.

The primary goal of the Grenada High School staff is to prepare students to be independent, self-motivated, and able to function effectively in society. Students receive a varied and solid base of knowledge to prepare the individual for employment or additional education experience.

Students graduating from GHS earn 24 credit units unless participating in the Graduation Opt-out Policy, in which they must earn 21 credits. (Opt-out allows one less science, 1/2 less economics and 1/2 less geography, 1/2 less physical education, and one less elective.)
