Granada High School provided me with the best high school experience I could ask for! Whether if it was teachers who have paid much attention to my questions or a student body and administration that helped me with anything that I needed, Granada High School was one of the best chapters in my life.

Although the environment is not as diverse as I would imagine the average American school is, the environment and atmosphere was great, along with an excellent athletics department and overachieving students, GHS is a great school!

Granada High School is very community based. It is in the suburban area close to Livermore downtown. The neighborhood around it is safe for the most part. They offer a lot of activities for students such as homecoming skits, dances, pep rallies and other activities. The sports games bring the community together and they are a lot of fun! The administration could be better. Not many teachers are open to helping students one-on-one and most are neglectful. It also does not feel like there is very much support for students regarding mental health or their studies in general. On the other hand, Granada offers many AP/IB classes to further challenge students. Overall I give GHS an average score for their atmosphere and academics but there could be some improvements.
Granada is an enigma. Surrounded by mediocrity yet, like any average individual, parades as the best. My experience there is a whirlwind of the average shallow high school experience and the blaring brokenness of the American education system. In spite of this, this fake facade is loved by many as the classic stereotypes come into play through glances and whispers. I pretend to know myself amongst so many yet as I watch them ostracize unique differences, I look at them with disgust and only know what I am not. Most of the staff was average and underwhelming, viewing students only as distracted minds walking in and out. However, there were few that treasured teaching and nurtured not only the minds of students but the souls.becuase of these few hidden treasures to neutralize the sourness of the cons, Granada is mind-numbingly, astoundingly, average.
