Electives


Each trimester, the primary grade students are given an option of elective classes they can choose from for their last hour of classes.  By offering a variety of classes in both right and left brain thinking, the students get a well-rounded education is areas in which they have interest.  

According to the theory of left-brain or right-brain dominance, each side of the brain controls different types of thinking. Additionally, people are said to prefer one type of thinking over the other.

For example, a person who is “left-brained” is often said to be more logical, analytical, and objective. Classes that appeal to them are debate, chess, computer and robotics.

A person who is “right-brained” is said to be more intuitive, thoughtful, creative and subjective. These students would enjoy dance, gardening, music, and art to name a few.

Each trimester, the elective classes change so that the students experience different subject matters and opportunities.

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.
