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.

Granada Hills Charter High School has treated me, a new graduate after attending this school for four years, very well and very precise. It is a large school, some say too large, but somehow still finds the time for each and every student, to help with personal or academic issues. Most teachers are fresh and exciting, bringing life to each lesson they teach - from taking field trips to Six Flags to taking a yoga class IN our actual classroom! Definitely worth taking a tour and grabbing your spot today.
Granada Hills Charter High School fosters an academically rigorous environment, provides numerous public resources, and offers a wide range of classes. From what I remember, while some academic workloads became overwhelming, I truly enjoyed the course work because my teachers were so passionate and supportive. The faculty has developed over time; if not all, most teachers have high degrees and care about their work so much that they encourage student-teacher interaction when wanted/needed. I had a great experience academically and the school would offer public resources to me, like college courses, a wide variety of books, and health(ier than most schools) food. However, I did not really enjoy the social environment due to distinct segregation and the wealthier culture of the campus. Further, many of the regulations and security measures the school board takes often target students of minority groups (dress code, meal plan, etc.).
