Granite City High School is a school near to my heart. We don't have best equipment compared to other schools in our area, but our school is definitely one of the most spirited and fun. Our school was voted best student section in the South Western Conference and our sports team does pretty well. We also have great academic resources. The teachers at the school are all incredibly nice and are always ready and willing to help. We also have after school tutoring every Monday and Wednesday with teachers for any student who may be struggling in a subject. The school also prides itself on safety with the recent increase in school shootings our school has taken initiative of guarding doors and keeping us safe. Over all I highly recommend GCHS.

I like how everyone is friendly and there’s always a smiling face coming down the hallways. The administratives are always greeting us and telling us to have an amazing day. I love the environment around the school. It’s uplifting and encouragement throughout the entire school. Whether it’s a school sport, homework, or even pushing yourself to get up to go to school. You name it and Granite City has it all covered. The teachers may give out a lot of homework, but it’s preparing me for college. I’m always so stressed from all this work, but I realized this is preparing me for college and I can get through it. Also, I love how my school has peer tutors, which are students who help other students that are struggling with their specific class. It is very helpful because they are making sure everyone is passing and understanding their work.
Excellent high school to prepare for college while still having fun! Teachers and student alike rally behind one another. The atmosphere there was all about school spirit.
