It definitely isn't the worst district to be in and sometimes it is enjoyable. Their is one thing I absolutely love about this district: the diversity. I have grown up in a district that enabled me to meet people of all races, and it has helped me become the person I am today. Having a district that has diversity helps you be more open-minded and able to accept someone no matter what! I also appropriate the fact that they have so many different classes available; they have both academic and career ready classes. Unfortunately, frequently they have changed things in my school that have created unwanted changes in education. I feel that our education could have been better without some of their changes.

I love how the administration really fights with you and helps you achieve what you want, and encourages you to do it. The staff is very helpful because they reach out and make sure you are doing good, not only at school, but also in your home life. There are many students that have amazing school- spirit, but also support other high schools. I am always provided with new and hands-on experiences due to the GTI as well. At the GTI I am able to connect with other students from various high schools while focusing on my schooling. I also get the opportunity to get an internship and a job lined up after school due to this!
This is the best school district I have ever been in! They are always willing to push students to go above and beyond. I moved from Las Vegas and school districts there were horrible. No one cared whether or not the kids were learning. After moving to Utah, I found schooling to mean so much more to me. The granite school district allows for so many different opportunities from easy to hard courses to prepare students for college. Ive learned so much more within this district just in 3 years.
