Is there a Family Association?

The GIS Padres y Profes is an integral part of the school community.  Padres y Profes is a voluntary parent’s association, is responsible for planning and organizing many social, educational and fundraising events for the students, parents and faculty at GIS.  All GIS parents are welcome to join the group.

How are families involved?

Granada International School is a small, tight-knit community where families, students, faculty and staff alike contribute their time, energy and talent to the students and the School.  We invite the families to participate in day-to-day operations by reading to a class or helping in the front office.  We also rely on the parents to organize fundraising and social events.

What additional programs does GIS offer?

GIS’s mission is to engage each student in “a creative, experiential, and bilingual learning environment to uncover the maximum intellectual, artistic, and physical potential of each student.”  Our commitment to educating the whole child is evident in all that we do at our School and our Programs are designed with that objective in mind. GIS will offer a variety of extra-curricular programs which will include but will not limited to the following: academic enrichment, athletic programs, dance, art, foreign language and music.  If you would like to participate or lead a program please contact the Director to discuss the potential program addition.

Does the School provide lunch?

GIS does have a lunch program.  For $40 per month we will provide a  choice of two hot meals  high in protein and complex carbohydrates and low in sugar.  Students are also permitted to pack a lunch but we request that parents try to avoid the prepackaged foods and anything high in sugar including packaged drinks.  All students should bring a water bottle as water is available to all students all day long.

Do you offer transportation?

At this time GIS does not offer transportation.  There are several private routes that many of our parents use for pick-up and drop-off services.  If you are interested please contact the school office to obtain information regarding this private service.

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.
