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.

These programs are designed to prepare students for entry-level employment from high school or further specialty study in their chosen vocation.

Keystone is a course taught in 9th grade and is an introduction to career pathways and career decision-making. The course was developed to meet the needs of career academies including content in self-development, career clusters, pathways, and choices, as well as, financial planning. The course is designed to be taught in a “flipped” classroom environment where students are introduced to the content outside of class and actually experience the content during class.
