Garden Grove Unified school District is an amazing district. The district board is always attentive of each school needs and always trying to improve and encourage teachers and students. They added more extracurricular activities for students. For example, they have added dual- language at certain elementary schools to expand diversity. They are also currently upgrading each high school. Because of all the support this district give to the students, it has been made a distinguished district in California. Also, this school district has been an amazing support to me. I am a representation of their great improvement and help. Because of this school district, I am now thriving in my first year of college with a 4.0. This district prepared me and equipped me with the tools to have a bright future!

I love the staff, the teachers are very friendly and the environment is extremely clean. Everyone helps each other out and teachers wants to see the best in their kids. AP courses are offered here, although it is a rigorous course, teacher make sure student understands the material in order to succeed. The fine arts program such as choir, band and orchestra are extraordinary. As a student, working with others that shares the same interest in music gives me a sense of community. Orchestra taught me to work with other and cooperate as a team to put on an exceptional performance. From extracurricular activities and sports to academic, Garden Grove High school has it all!
I’ve been at GGHS for the past 4 years and the teachers are amazing here! All the teachers are caring and ensure that you are understanding the material. The environment here is great and there’s rarely any bullying around the school. However, some students don’t know how to clean up after themselves. After lunch, there is a huge mess with trash everywhere. That is one thing the students need to work on.
