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 is an outstanding school! Teachers at this school want you to challenge yourself. There is a lot of diversity at Granada, which is great to be surrounded by. All of the students want to succeed, which makes the environment very positive. I absolutely love this school! Unfortunately, I transferred to another school and it does not compare to Granada at all!
Granada Hills Charter High School does a excellent job preparing students for college. They inform students about scholarship opportunities and tell them about the different types of colleges. They also offer many resources such as SAT prep and mock interviews. However, the school is so well known for things like ACADECA and high test scores that they overwhelm their students with many unnessicary assignments to keep their scores high. They often don't care about a students well being and mental health, and instead put endless amounts of pressure on kids to preform well so the school can have a positive front. They have good cafeteria food.
