As a school project, students have set up a museum with details about and artifacts from the Granada War Relocation Center. [ [http://www.nps.gov/archive/manz/ccgranda.htm Granada Pioneer] , National Park Service. Accessed July 23, 2007.] John Hopper, a history teacher at the school, started a program in the early 1990s to educate students about the Japanese American internment camp situated near the community during World War II, gathering photos and interviewing those interned at the camps. Through the efforts of students and their "Amache Preservation Society", the camp has been designated as a National Historic Landmark. [Frazier, Deborah.

Accessed July 23, 2007. "Okubo said John Hopper, who became a history teacher at Granada High School about 15 years ago, transformed local attitudes about Camp Amache. Hopper said he wanted to give students a sense of local history, so they began gathering photos and interviewing Japanese-Americans who had been at Amache. "We've taken our presentation to schools and colleges across Colorado," he said. "It's controversial because some people still think it was the right thing to do." Hopper's students worked with Sen. Wayne Allard, R-Colo., Sen. Ken Salazar, D-Colo., and Rep. Marilyn Musgrave, R-Colo., to win National Historic Site designation."] Students from the school have traveled around the state, educating students about the internment camp.
