A Model District


Project Lead the Way — which implements cutting-edge school curricula to attract students to careers in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) — released the publication “Launching a STEM Story for Every Student” in February 2024. The new publication spotlights Grenada School District’s implementation of the program in PreK-12 and how it has led to student success. The publication serves to illustrate best practices for PLTW’s more than 11,500 schools nationwide.

Grenada School District was granted $5 million in additional funding from the State of Mississippi during the May 2024 legislative session. The funds were awarded based on a proposal to confront the community’s growing population and workforce needs by establishing a dynamic new learning program, the Entrepreneurial and Innovation Center (EIC).

Projected to open for students in the 2026-2027 school year, the EIC will serve as GSD’s outstanding learning environment for fostering entrepreneurship and innovation.

The state legislature’s funding makes it possible to conduct significant renovations to a district-owned property, the 30,000 square-foot building that formerly housed the Daily Star and will serve as the EIC’s home.

Grenada High School’s Visions show choir capped off a stellar season with the biggest prize ever received by the program — a second-place trophy from the Show Choir Nationals competition at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tenn. Their competition show, "Ugly," earned two grand championships at competitions throughout Mississippi. 

The middle school choir, Entertainers, also competed well around the state with their show, "Beetlejuice," and the GES 4-5 choir, Pizzazz, captured many first-place titles with their show, "Catch a Wave."

GHS Internships Flourish this Spring

The internship program at Grenada High School continues to expand, granting students real-world work experience in their chosen career path as well as a generous hourly wage.

Tiffany Reed, Career Coach at GHS, has matched several seniors with local businesses that suit their interests. The experience is proving mutually beneficial for both students and businesses.

Several students are currently working in a variety of professional roles with internship positions at local businesses including the Carlos Moore Law Group, Psychosocial Solutions, and Horan Family Dental.

In addition to a fleet of 28 new air-conditioned school buses, the district’s transportation department has added two new electric (EV) buses. 

GSD Transportation Director Benji Britt said the new EV buses arrived free of charge to the district through a federal EPA grant. 

The EV buses have been employed to run short routes in town and have performed exceedingly well.The daily energy expenses are estimated to be about $5 a day less than traditional diesel fuel, and if those savings hold true, that could add up over time. 

PLTW Visits Grenada to Celebrate Impact

Grenada School District (GSD) celebrated recent achievements in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) education at a special event on Feb. 20. The occasion centered around the publication of “Launching a STEM Story for Every Student,” a profile of Grenada’s implementation of Project Lead the Way (PLTW) curriculum in grades PreK through 12. 

GSD was the first district in Mississippi to establish this program top to bottom in all grades, PreK through 12, and the district’s success story was shared and discussed with members of PLTW, local industry, and community leaders.

Spring baseball is gearing up, and like the start of last fall’s football season, fans are eager to see how this year’s Chargers will perform under the guidance of a new head coach.

Justin Flake took over Grenada’s baseball program last summer. He developed a successful strategy at his previous schools, including DeSoto Central and Heritage Academy in Columbus. Flake credits his winning mindset to the power of positive leadership. “The thing I’ve learned everywhere I’ve coached is to make sure the players know that you enjoy what you do,” he said. “If I bring positive energy day in and day out, it filters over to them, and then they start pouring positive energy into the program, which filters over to the stands and school and community.”
