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.

Overall, the school environment was positive and encouraging; school spirit is big here. Not only were students of diverse cultural and social backgrounds, but teachings incorporated a wide variety of sources and focused on quality. Of course there may have been some teachers that use techniques that may not work for all students, most of the faculty really wanted kids to succeed. Hands-on activities, tutoring, workshops and enrichment opportunities allow for students to really be immersed in the education process. Personally, my writing skills flourished junior year in an AP English Language class and has helped me earn high marks on my papers in college. Electives were also very educational: I took a cooking course which expanded my knowledge on food safety as well as the culinary arts. In fact, all of my skills were harnessed and grew at this high school, allowing me to feel prepared and ready for the best possible college experience.
Honestly, Granada is actually a great school. You will most likely hear good news about this school, and it will most likely be about its academics rather than its sports. I personally believe that we are especially known for our Academic Decathlon team, and they are amazing. I love how diverse this school is, and how both students and administrators are exposed to many different cultures and traditions. Granada will never stop to surprise me with the varieties of clubs they offer, and the many activities it hosts. Granada is all about college readiness, and I know this 100% because I had just attended a college fair hosted by Granada. Safety is one of the many things Granada performs well because of the amount of drills we do and the campus police. Whether its from a class that you chose to fill in your schedule, or an intellectual conversation you have with your group of friends, you never truly stop learning at Granada Hills Charter High School.
