Granite Falls High School Reviews
As a graduating senior student of Granite Falls high school I can say there there are many good things and bad things in the school district. To start things off I would say most teachers are very nice and put obvious effort into your education, they are not there only for the paycheck. Another thing is, the student involvement, it’s quite shocking how involved the school is (students, staff, and families) with school events like sports and dances. The downside however is Granite is not very good with their planning and their website is never up to date, they also never notify people about things happening. They have (on many occasions) changed the date in an event that has been the same for a month (I was in drama and this happen three times once for one play, the whole cast had to tell their families (because the school never does) sorry for the change since they all took those days off to see the performance) to something else and never tells anyone about it until last moment.
Granite Falls High School is a very close community where most students and teachers know each other. The students and staff are fairly welcoming, but finding a group of friends to wholeheartedly accept you into their clique as an incoming student may prove to be a challenge. This can easily be attributed to the small student body. The school has a limited choice of classes pertaining to STEM subjects and has a focus on math and economics classes.
It’s a small school so it has it’s downfalls, but the first thing any student would say about granite is how close it is. We have our cliques, but a “nerd” can walk to a “jock” table and feel like they’ve always belonged there. Everyone fits in with everyone. The only problem is students don’t feel supported by their administrators in their opinions and or problems with our school.
