Granada Hills Charter High School Reviews

GHCHS is an outstanding high school. We've won the Academic Decathlon six times and our education system, though may be faulty, is pretty good compared to other schools in our area. The teachers aren't top notch for a school of this academic prowess, but they get the job done and in a way teach the students the responsibility of teaching themselves. Most students that attend are seriously competitive and to graduate from Granada with any reward is an accomplishment within itself.
What I would change about Granada is the administration. The staff in most of the offices are snobby and rude. During enrollment season, their egos are inflated because everybody wants to get into Granada, but if you don't live within the boundaries - there is no way for someone to get in without going through lottery, but even then your spot at Granada isn't guaranteed.

This high school is pretty admirable, being the number one charter school in the nation. It has amazing academic success rates and the extra curricular clubs/ classes are truly an experience you won't want to miss! The culture is much better compared to the other high schools because at Granada we prioritize doing the best we can and constantly improving.
I had an average time at Granada Hills Charter High School. The teachers in the English department are absolutely amazing ,but those in the math department could use some work. I experienced two very poor teachers for math and have struggled since. Granada does have a nice campus that is well maintained. They have an abundance of activities and I throughly enjoyed my time in show choir as well as in an a capella group. My main con of Granada is that the administration is not very caring and they seem more focused on appearance. Counselors and nurses were amazing but the deans were not pleasant. The school wants the kids to be in class to learn yet they make students late by dresscoding them. I think they should take the student’s ID number and deal with the dress code during a break instead of wasting class time and embarrassing them. Overall, I didn’t feel cared about by the administration but I had several AMAZING teachers and loved the music department.
