Granada Hills Charter High School Reviews

Throughout my two years at Granada Hills Charter High School I have enjoyed the friendly and safe environment. Not only does this school offer 29 AP and 38 IB courses, but offers college courses provided by Pierce College as well. The diversity in these classes ensure that every student is encouraged to take a course that best fits their interests. There are also many programs at GHCHS that tend to different needs such as STEM and Humanitas. All students are encouraged to try their best, even when coming from a difficult background. The teachers here at GHCHS care about their students and fellow co-workers alike. Teachers often spend hours after classes helping students study, prepare for future exams and answering important questions. With this being said, the teachers also help their fellow co-workers by sharing classroom ideas, worksheets, and exams so that they can later discuss what students and missing or need more guidance with. I hope this helps!

I’m an alum from Class of 2016 and from what I remember, I had an overall wonderful experience. I was advised and always informed of resources offered- especially in the College & Career Center. They made me feel like a top-tier university was achievable and prepared me well during college application season. Overall, students are kind, bright, and ambitious- a great environment to immerse your child in. The quality of instruction depends on what academic program you enroll in because that can shape your experience and types of relationships with teachers and other peers. There are teachers that love their job and are inspired by their students but most of them are only in specific academic programs like GHI/IB/Humanitas/etc. I’ve been thankful to experience that synergy in the classroom. Lastly, admin was extremely rigid with their policies such as dress code and tardy policies that were a bit excessive and hindering in my honest opinion. Other than that critique, GHCHS was great!
Granada has a lot of mixed opinions from me. It definitely isn't the best school, but it is not as bad of a school as everyone says it is. I have met amazing people here, and apart from all the stress from the workload, I enjoy being here. The food and AP/IB exams cost a lot if you don't have the free and reduced lunch plan. Granada offers great programs such as IB, STEM, and much more! Many students are a part of some sort of extracurricular or program. However the overall community has its ups and downs. You sometimes meet students that are not the nicest, but also meet kind students if you search. The teachers/admin make or break your experience. There are really good teachers, and then there are some that don't fit that standard. Detention is a common practice among the staff/admin, since the rules are very strict and are made to ensure that all students are safe and protected from bullying. I personally am enjoying Granada, and hope that 8th graders do consider going here.
