Granite Bay High School is a wonderful school. The teachers are extremely dedicated to their students and the overall feeling is welcoming. The only downfall I could find with GBHS is the counseling system in place. My personal experience has been very frustrating with the councilors. They have implemented a system that makes direct contact and conversation seldom. The department does have a system in place, but perhaps it could undergo some modifications. The councilors do their best to help and that is evident but it feels like they are very thinly stretched. Overall, GBHS is a wonderful environment that offers practically everything. Whether your scene is with band, robotics, sports, drama or anything in between you will find your place!

Granite Bay High School is an excellent school with a strong focus on academics. Everyone at the school values their education, and the teachers and administration do an excellent job at pushing students to be their best. In terms of resources and facilities, it really is your standard public high school. However, the whole community is very involved in the school and it shows in our school athletics and activities.
Granite Bay boasts top athletic programs in the region and top academic programs, making it the perfect fit for student-athletes.
As a recent graduate moving on to a 4 year university, their is truly a strong effort to motivate students to pursue education after high school. The goal is not only to graduate high school, but to be accepted and attend universities and colleges all around the country.
The AP classes offered truly prepare you for college, as well as their IB program. Many alumni have connections to prestigious schools and you have higher chances of getting into top schools, especially with the rigorous classes offered. They have many resources for classes, as well, especially in the science department. The athletic department is one of the best in the area and the clubs offered are diverse. The professors are educated in their works and care about their students. Many students are as equally motivated in their schoolwork and professors are very supportive. However, the school does lack diversity as well as the area.
