Grand Haven High School Reviews
I graduated in 2018 and I think GHAPS is an amazing district. GHHS’ teachers are all very equipped with preparing students for college. I understand that Grand Haven is not a racially diverse town, so the school is not in correspondence to that. As a POC, I sometimes found it difficult to connect well to my peers. But I did feel very welcomed by the teachers who loved to have cultural conversations. Additionally, I did not participate in sports, but the games were always amazing. Our athletes are trained well here, and GHHS offers a large variety of sports. But, I was a student interested in the arts and music. So I do feel partial to say that I wish that those areas of the school were more appreciated. Also, clubs were fun at GHHS. Students could join clubs that teachers led, or could form their own! I think the latter is an especially neat feature of this school as students know themselves the best, and is definitely a beneficial way for students to gain leadership experience.
I am currently enrolled at Grand Haven High School, and will be a senior next year. I enjoy many things about GHHS, I think that the teachers are fantastic and the amount of opportunities is excellent. If you are thinking about coming to Grand Haven there are some things you should know, they make it difficult to get the resources you may need if you are lower-class. I am often forced to reach out myself, rather than be provided with support. Support for mental health here is abysmal, and there is not much focus or services. There is a heavy emphasis on sports, so if that is your thing, you're all set! There are many opportunities to join interesting clubs and to take challenging classes. If there is one take away from GHHS, make sure to advocate for yourself!! Email your teachers and guidance counselor, and don't squander the opportunities you are given.
The academic curriculum taught is well preformed. They have a wide variety of athletics to choose from however the prices are a bit high as well as very strict coaches. I have had some trouble in both departments. One huge factor that needs to be changed is the amount of bullying students are doing and that the staff are letting it slide. One day my senior year I was walking in school and wasn't shocked by what I heard because this is what goes on daily but disgusted that people think its okay. A group of boys were discussing the topics of depression, suicide, and rape. They think it's okay to go around and make jokes about the seriousness of mental health, while including phrases like "she was asking for it" while discussing rape victims. I have gone to staff members even the assistant principles numerous times to discuss the matters at hand and they said they would handle it but nothing ever changed. All I want is for Grand Haven High School to not be known as "Suicide Central."
