Granite Falls High School Reviews

All Categories
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.
The majority of the teachers here do a good or great job teaching, and they are more than happy to help students who show an interest in their class. The sports at this school aren't the most competitive. However, some of the coaches put a lot of effort into their sport and help their students improve as both an athelete and a person.
