Welcome to Grenada School District
Grenada School District is dedicated to excellence so that each child reaches their maximum potential within a safe learning environment while providing a comprehensive educational program that fosters the academic, physical, social, and emotional growth of all students.
In order to accomplish our mission, the district is committed to five components of effective schools-
1. A clear school mission
2. Strong instructional leadership
3. A safe and orderly climate
4. High expectations
5. A system to measure achievement
Mississippi’s First Lady Elee Reeves visited Grenada Elementary 4-5 on Monday, May 1. The wife of Governor Tate Reeves spoke to fourth-grade students about her children’s book, Mississippi’s Fred the Turtle.
Reeves’ stop in Grenada was part of her goal to visit every county in the state to talk to children and excite them about reading.
Members of the First Lady’s staff presented each student in attendance with a copy of Mississippi’s Fred the Turtle. In thanks, the school’s show choir, Pizzazz, entertained the First Lady with a music and dance performance.
The first-ever Red Top Senior Walk-Through was held at Grenada Elementary PreK-3 on Friday, May 1. Students in the GHS Class of 2023 donned their caps and gowns and made one last pass through the hallways where many of their educational journeys began.
The line of approximately 260 seniors wound through the Red Top halls, flanked on both sides by students in first through third grades. Elementary students held up posters as they cheered loudly and slapped hands with the line of seniors passing by their classrooms.
A new class of sophomores, juniors and seniors were inducted into Grenada High School’s chapter of National Honor Society on February 19. The 150-member organization is made up of motivated, high-performing students who are dedicated to service as well as academics.
GHS sophomores with a minimum overall average of 92 are eligible to join the GHS chapter of National Honor Society (NHS). Students with high achievement in academics, as well as extracurricular activities and community service, are invited to become a member. Though most enter the club as sophomores, junior and seniors who reach the GPA requirement are invited to apply for membership as well.
Grenada School District upheld its tradition of show choir excellence this year as all three competition choirs — from elementary to high school — earned first-place honors at various festivals throughout the southeast.
Grenada High School’s Visions show choir took home two Grand Champion titles and a host of other citations with their show “Something to Believe In.”
The Grenada Middle School choir, Entertainers, closed out their season with a first-place win in Brandon, while the Grenada Elementary 4-5 choir, Pizzazz, competed strongly among middle school choirs.
All three choirs will hold public performances for the community during the month of April.
Grenada Elementary School 4-5 enlisted the help of students and parents to solve “Mystery at the Mansion” on Thursday, February 16.
Administrators and teachers used theatrical performance, brain-building exercises, and a narrative educational experience to strengthen math engagement at this family event based on the board game Clue.
“We’re trying to teach students to use not just math but deductive reasoning, problem-solving, and higher-order thinking,” said Lisa Jordan, a math specialist at GES 4-5 and one of the event organizers.

Real estate agents from Landmark Realty in Grenada delivered a financial gift of $500 to the Grenada School District’s Special Education Department.
The gift, intended to supplement supplies for special education teachers across the district, was part of a new initiative set forth by the agency’s owner, Kevin Jackson.
Jackson said when he bought Landmark Realty last year, he had one goal in mind: to immerse the company in the community. “We began brainstorming for the first project, and the school district was the logical choice,” he said.
