I liked the International Baccalaureate program offerings at Granby High School. The school itself is very crowded, and getting from place to place is a huge chore. The lack of lockers or places to store things make this even more difficult. The school however was very safe, sometimes to the extreme making it feel like a prison. There are many great teachers there who make up for the prison atmosphere!

My time at Granby has been quite interesting throughout the course of high school. It is a quite diverse school with people from all sorts of backgrounds, providing me with an opportunity to befriend all sorts of people and get to know there story. However that being said, education wise, I feel as if it is underfunded. It lacks variety in classes, especially when it comes to electives. Ap classes are available so are IB, but again, I wish there was more variety. The laptops are slow and the internet is quite inconsistent. There are limited numbers of events and hardly any recognition of good educational performance. Nonetheless, the overall experience has been quite rich. I made some of the best school memories here. Hence, I give it a 4 out of 5 along with a personal Circle of Diversity award.
I am a Senior in the upcoming 2018-2019 school year. Granby High School, under the leadership of Dr. Gibson, has been amazing. Like many schools and organizations we have our downfalls in areas such as resources, we don’t always have enough and some have to go without. Also, we can sometimes have favoritism between the regular and the IB students. Although, Granby may not be the best our school spirit, the teachers whom most can confide in, and the many different opportunities Granby High School offers overule all the bad. As we always say, “ Our mission is to raise the bar so that all students will be prepared for college and the world of work. This will be done by rigor, relevance, and relationships.” Stay Golden !
