About Our School
Granada Elementary School is a community of students, parents, and staff dedicated to maintaining high academic standards for every child to prepare our students to take a positive role in society as productive citizens and be life long learners.
Granada School is dedicated to developing and maintaining a philosophy of respect for all members of our school community. We have high expectations for all students, teachers, and staff. We strive to meet the diverse, multicultural needs of our students by fostering a lifelong love of learning, and developing responsible, confident, educated citizens through a school/home/community partnership that will advance into the 21st century.
Granada School maintains consistent enrollment. We began the school year with sixteen classes in Kindergarten through eighth grade. In grades K-3, class size reduction provides classroom settings at a student-teacher ratio of 24:1. Granada School is the location for the District’s deaf and hard-of-hearing (DHH) program. In addition to our three regular DHH classes, this year we have two DHH pre-school classes. They are a wonderful addition to our school campus.
Implementation of the California State Standards (CSS) is a top priority. Literacy and Math are the two major focus areas of the school. In grades K-3, our emphasis is on primary students learning to read and write well and begin using technology. Students in 4th through 8th grades focus on both literature and informational text and the further integration of technology. In Math, students learn, master and apply essential concepts and grade level skills.
Granada School has implemented a systemic reading program intended to raise all students to a proficient level of performance. Students in grades K-3 participate in Strategic Teaming (ST). During ST students receive reading instruction according to their needs with extra adult support provided to lower the adult/student ratio. Teachers collaborate to plan lessons and monitor student progress.
We continue to seek ways to improve parental and community involvement. Parents are very important members of the Granada family. The Granada staff works with parents to encourage increased involvement with our school and their children’s education. All parents are invited to attend parent workshop opportunities that provide helpful strategies for success and clarify information on many school related issues.
We invite you to become a partner in the education of our students and welcome your attendance and participation at our school functions. We believe that our school goals can best be achieved through a cooperative effort by students, school staff, parents, and the community.
