Granby High School Reviews
Rating 3.52 out of 5 368 reviews
At Granby, I experienced many different educational opportunities that not a lot of kids get to experience in other cities in Virginia. My best experiences at Granby were organizing events with class of 2024. Prom and pep rally’s were great opportunities to get out of class and have fun with my peers. I also took part in clubs such as black student union and enjoyed cheerleading as it being my sport. My worst parts would be lack of making connections with people and lack of communication from teachers. I would like to see a change in how diverse the school should be and I think teachers should do better communicating information to students. Despite all the cons from my teachers, I will say that when they communicate information appropriately, it makes the learning experience better and suitable for all students.
Overall my experience at Granby High School has been great! I have never had a problem with classes, whether that was choosing a class or actually sitting and learning in one. There were always people there if I needed them, specifically for my future. I am very glad to have my four years of high school be at Granby. Even though I had a great experience I have heard stories from my peers who can not say they had the same pleasant experiences. After the pandemic from Covid 19, Granby has constantly been understaffed. And I would like to add during 2022 many teachers left at the same time but it was never disclosed why. Also, the staff did not know how to control students very well; however, that is most likely because of not enough security guards. Even though Granby High School did have its flaws I would happily say it is a great school!
Granby High School. Either you could enroll in the amazing International Baccalaureate program like I did or remain in general education. I loved the IB program however, experienced imposter syndrome as there’s was not many Africa American students within the program. The school it’s self is okay yet, chaotic on some occasions. Many students don’t pass, attend their classes, or abide by rules. I recall the principle stating multiple times that Granby High may loose their accreditation due to the not so well passing rate. I can say that the school has improved over the school year as there was many fights in the beginning of the year. In my opinion, what can be done differently is hiring staff members that have their students best interest at heart and can be a backbone when their students are not doing so well mentally or emotionally. Many students feel as though their teachers are not supportive in and out of the classroom.
