Granite Hills is what you make of it. Some teachers are unknowledgeable (the math department needs work), but others are amazing! Foreign language, English, and science departments are very good, and they have very good teachers in the History department as well. If you don't apply yourself and go out of your way to get the resources you need, you won't be college ready. You really have to be self motivated, otherwise you can easily get left behind by admin. For those who do make those connections and build God relationships with admin and teachers, Granite gives you what you need to succeed.
I love Granite Hills High School. Granite hills is a very open, accepting, and opportunity-filled place with all kinds of people from all backgrounds and we all come together as one. I love our school spirit and how much the students connect with the teachers. We offer a lot of arts programs such as dance, band, guitar, strings, choir, drawing and painting, and so much more. I feel my school really encourages me to grow and build myself up as a person, wanting to try new things any chance I get. We all get so close and your friends start to feel like family. My school also offers many resources for our improvement like after school tutoring, SAT prep, councelors are always available and wanting to help you. My school also offers a bridge program with our community college where you can take college and high school all in one and being part of that program is the best choice I have ever made. I would not change a thing about my school. I am very lucky to be able to attend it.
