The way the breaks are set up aren’t good! We have spring break and they count the weekends. Also they should not have student graduate with 27 credit in order to revive your diploma with your high school name in it. There are other school who only have to graduate with 24 credits. I also believe the administration needs to realize that everything isn’t about testing or how good a students IQ is. Admins need to understand that there are student who are going through a lot and sometime only come to school to feel safe when reallythey don’t feel safe at school. The Granite Distirct should make Moreno programs that help students with sucide. We should have classes about suicide awareness , bullying , depression, & more. We need to talk about things going today & things that will help us in our future.

I love GSD! The teachers are committed to teaching and actually like their jobs. They are always willing to help out and answer questions. Granite also has so many opportunities available to all students, opportunities I could not get elsewhere. I am so thankful to be apart of GSD. The only problem here is the WiFi, which unfortunately shuts down and quits working often. When the WiFi is down, we cannot do our work.
I have had an amazing time at a Granite School District. I went to Granger High School, all four years of High School. I joined the basketball team making new friends. The teachers were just amazing! They were always there for me to pass my class. The teachers I had made sure I was getting my work done and showing my true potential. I passed mostly all of my classes with a B or higher! My teachers were really there to keep me on track. I was also able to join the Girls Basketball team and Concert choir. I never felt like I couldn't both, with being in school and all. My teachers and coaches were just always there to support me!
