Granby is one of the best schools I've attended in Norfolk and I've been to three within my whole high school career. I say this because this school seems to really care about their students. The teachers I've had over the last year have really helped mold me into a better student and didn't mind going the extra mile to help me get back on track. They have recently added a new class which I'm glad to be a part of, African American studies, which helps me get to know more about my roots and where I come from. Also, my English teacher along with the guidance counselors have continually came to discuss our futures. Our staff helped us apply to college when it was Virginia College Application week and helped us fill out resumes. As far as safety, they are always on top of the safety of the students.

I would say that for someone who took advanced classes both AP honors and IB Granby offers a great education. The school funded programs on demand, online tutoring and homework help at no cost for military families. Online tutoring classes helped me stay focus and I immediately seen a change in my grades. The faulty did a great job on making sure students had the tools needed to succeed and beyond. Grades were not an important factor to faulty and staff but the student being able to apply the material. I would say Granby is a great school but not perfect, no school is.
What I liked about Granby High School was how the administration trusted the students to plan for themselves and make things happen but with their support. Granby mission was to raise the bar so that all students would be well prepared for the world of work, and their commitment to ensuring that we are prepared is clear in their everyday actions.

One thing I would like for them to change is their shyness from modern technology. Most teachers don't want us to use phones or other technical aspects in class yet the world has unlimited resources at our fingertips. It is important for us to use all the resources that we have access to.
