Emiliano Lizares National High School is a barrio high school situated at the heart of Barangay Granada. Basically, the school is surrounded by sugarcane fields but in close proximity to the PNP Precinct and the Barangay Hall. The school is also accessible to the nearest barangays such as Barangay Estefania and Barangay Alangilan.
This barrio high school was opened in 1962 through the passage of Resolution No. 294 s. 1962 in the leadership of Mr. Jose Ballesteros, Mr. Pedro Aguilar, and Mr. Flaviano Hechanova. Granada High School was considered an extension school of Bacolod City High School under the supervision of Mr. Geronimo P. Gonzalez.
After a series of joint meetings of the different stakeholders, landowners Mr. and Mrs. Manuel Del Rosario Jr. voluntarily donated 3.5 hectares of lot for the school. But due to pending transfer of the Bacolod Boys Home which was apparently the occupant of the site, the building was not constructed.
In 1966, the high school main building was officially turned-over and inaugurated in the permanent highs school site covering 12 classrooms with 438 enrollees on that year. The school was then known as Don Emiliano Lizares National High School.
The school was nationalized in 1988-1989 and was renamed Emiliano Lizares National High School. There were 8 school heads who took charge of the school since its birth in 1962. Each school head marked a niche in the development of the barrio high school.
Presently, there are 1, 447 students officially enrolled. Most of them come from the 32 haciendas of Granada and the neighbor barangays.
