Granada Hills Charter High is an average school, like every school I have even attended or heard of. Most of the teachers I've had are nice and are good at teaching us. However, there are some teachers that are not good at teaching. The work load at Granada is not horrible, but it really depends what program you are in and what classes you are taking. Some teachers give a reasonable amount of work, but other teachers assume none of the students have a life and they give so much work. In addition, Granada does not implement any BIPOC (black, indigenous, and people of color) readings/books in their classes which is a disappointment. At least our sports teams are the best, right? Well, except our football team. They barely win any games. Thank you!

Granada provides one of the best high school opportunities you could ask for. Challenging yet fun obstacles will help you grow into an independent and free thinker through the years. The teaching staff are always ready to assist you at a moment's notice. Arguably more challenging than some colleges, Granada is guaranteed to leave you better prepared than anyone else. Not to mention they've got huge sports teams with excellent coaches. My track Coach was a professional who ran in Massive events all the way in Japan!
Granada has been a rocky experience. I have had some fairly bad teachers which have seriously weighed down my time, but also some teachers who have given me many opportunities. Overall, the wildly varying range of teacher ability is what most dragged down my time at Granada, as it is a noticeable and widely talked about issue amongst students. The most interesting part of Granada would be the culture and diversity. There is no noticeable "social hierarchy" here, everyone sticks to their own groups on the enormous campus and leaves each other alone. This lends to a pretty fun culture where students can find a group that they can befriend without worrying about "popularity." Students are also usually academically driven here due to a culture of work effort, leading academics and average grades to be pretty high. Furthermore, the counselors and resources overall here are solid, and if taken advantage of, are very useful (tutoring, counseling, etc.).
