Welcome to Grenada Middle School

A happy medium

Grenada Middle School offers numerous opportunities for students in grades 6-8 to accelerate from childhood into adolescence. Our stellar academics introduce innovative concepts in science and elevate concepts in math and language. Meanwhile our athletics, art, band, and show choir programs give many students their first chance to explore interests outside of the classroom. All along, we get to know our kids to make them feel like they belong here.

Take the tour and see what makes us tick.

Grenada School District hosted its first track meet in over 25 years this spring. The Grenada Invitational, held March 26, brought six other schools from around the region to compete on Grenada’s new rubber track and field as part of the refurbished Charger Stadium.

Jeff Williams, head coach for the boys and girls teams at both Grenada High and Middle Schools, said the meet allowed the program to show off its new track and field space as well as its top athletes.

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."

GMS's Inclusive Classroom Strategy

There’s more to conducting a modern classroom than just using technology to spice up a lesson. Educating today’s diverse student body requires a more holistic approach to the classroom, even if it means using multiple teachers and strategies.

Inclusive teaching methods are used to create a learning environment where all students can thrive, regardless of social backgrounds and learning abilities. At Grenada Middle School, certain classrooms have shown success merging general education students with students who have been identified as needing special education and/or related services.

After the recent retirement of Prinicipal Marshall Whittemore, the new administrative team at Grenada Middle School, led by new principal Jamie Harrison, continues to build on a strong foundation by listening to teachers and getting to know students. 

Among the new changes is a separate class schedule for sixth graders, which is part of a new commitment to easing the transition from the elementary school to the middle school for incoming students.

Show Choir Wrap-Up, 2023

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 Middle School hosted its first-ever family literacy event, Night of Legends, on Thursday, March 23. The event introduced students in grades 6-8 and their families to exciting stories featuring classic figures from Greek mythology.

Following on the heels of other successful themed events throughout the district, Night of Legends brought out 100 participants to celebrate literacy. “Time and time again, our teachers, students, parents, and community members have remarked on how unique and refreshing these events are,” said event organizer Pam Briscoe, the district’s ELA Instructional Specialist. 

Students and their parents were divided into four groups to hear classic Greek myths read aloud by members of the community. Staff members ushered families into classrooms that had been transformed into fanciful settings with the help of community business and civic organizations.
