Sixth Grade

Sixth grade represents the transition between primary and secondary education. Therefore, among the main objectives of this stage, is to encourage individual decision making to create independent students. All this without forgetting the importance of teamwork to achieve the maximum potential of each student and their social skills. Beyond the teaching of each subject, we prioritize the passion for reading, writing and research for each subject. This way, the students themselves will be able to discover their true vocation during the coming years.

Go Green with our Reusable Grocery Bags

Granada International School has joined up with CENICA, the Nicaraguan conservation group, to help rid Granada of plastic bags. CENICA, along with our 5th and 6th grades students, are going door to door to ask businesses to boycott plastic bags and plastic straws.  To give the consumers options, we have created these reusable bags that can be used instead of plastic. Our plans are to sell the bags in front of the grocery stores as well as is a variety of locations. Each bag is $5 and is made of a heavy fabric that will withstand the test of time.  If you would like to support this project and order our bags, please click below.
