Granite Hills High School Reviews
Rating 3.84 out of 5 438 reviews
I transferred to Granite Hills High School as a junior, and ever since I have not regretted it. The people there are very friendly and kind. The teachers love to help their students the best way they can. The campus is very safe and secured. I've never seen any fights in that school since I moved there. I have been welcomed to the kids who go there and I am grateful for that.
Great place to explore the outside environment. Make friends and meet new unique people close to your age group to explore to wild adventure of Granite Hills High School. Go Eagles. Our mascot represents a form of bravery and power. I, personally, did not have a good experience at high school because people were jerks. I was mostly fond of older groups, not the younger groups.
This is an overall good school located in a suburan neighborhood. The area around the school is single family homes with ranches with horses. A park is located across the street. Tons of parking for drop off locations for parents.
Granite Hill's medical pathway is was attracted me to the school, and I can say whole heartedly that it has exceeded my expectations. I have never felt more prepared for my future career, and have been given so many incredible oppourtunities that I never would have recieved without this program.
Granite Hills High School has been an okay place to attend for high school. It doesn't offer as much as other high schools do but it does still offer a lot for its students. Things that I like about this school is our education. It is one of the few schools that offer the IB diploma and IB classes that prepare us for college. Overall, the experience at this school has been not good but no bad making it the average high school experience.
Granite Hills is all around a very nice school. The campus is clean most of the time, the bathrooms are maintained and monitored, there is no gang activity, no racial tensions, all staff are open to student beliefs and opinions, teachers are passionate and understanding in their work, the school offers counseling and mental health help when needed. Over all, it is an amazing school to be going to. All I wish to see changed is the amount of vapes/weed seen on campus, but the school already takes as many measures as possible to monitor and combat this problem. We also have an on-campus officer at all times, and many assemblies and activities throughout the year to promote student health and wellbeing.
The Granite Hills campus is very beautiful. There is a lot of greenery spread all throughout the school. The students and staff are all nice and helpful. One thing I would like to see changed is the lockers in the halls. Many of them are old and dirty and should be replaced with new ones. Also, Granite has an extremely open campus which can be dangerous at times.
I would like to see more resources from the school such as better tutoring and help for first generation students. I think that the reason there is the lack of these resources is because around 70% of the students at this school are white which implies that most students have the money or parents that can help out with school. There are many clubs which is great but they are not really those that seem very appealing in college apps because they are for example “culinary club, anime club”. I feel like sometimes the math in this school is a lot different from other schools in that we have “integrated math” which I feel like puts students behind other schools who have regular “geometry” and “Algebra” (nevertheless the teacher is NOT the problem, she is great) I would also like to say that the science classes offered here are great and really set up a path for success in college.
Granite hills high school offered me a pathway to help prepare me for science and language !! The teachers at granite hills are inspiring and never stop fighting for your success.
I am a senior at Granite Hills High School. I think Granite has very good school spirit and is great at involving students to join clubs/activities. The teachers are very supportive and always want to see their students thrive in their class. They will go over lessons even if only one person doesn't understand it. The teachers at Granite make the students feel safe and give the students room to express themselves and instill values into each individual. The food is very good and cheap too! The only downfall I would say is that eight out of ten people in the office administration are rude and do not care about the students' feelings. Overall, Granite is a good school and I'm glad I can say I graduated an Eagle!
Soo to be graduating I have seen the entirety of the staff and campus. I love the friendliness amongst students and teachers as well as the amount of help and support offered to the students. There is a huge variety of classes open to students and each one has varying levels of difficulty. The only thing I would like to see change is some of the restrooms, some of them have been destroyed by students and need replacing.
Granite Hills High School has very few open-ended spaces where students could interact, express their feelings, and connect in class with peers and teachers. The teachers and staff are very strict at Granite Hills High School. The teachers and staff are concentrated on the fact of teaching and getting the curriculum accomplished on that day that they don't allow the students to connect with the work they are given and have open-ended discussions about the assignments with other students in the class. The students are expected to sit in class for a full hour and not connect with the work and students that they are given. Granite Hills gives students very boring educational experience and that is why there is a high dropout rate as well as bad testing scores. Students can not learn without connecting, speaking, laughing, and overall enjoying the class while learning the curriculum. I would like to see Granite Hills promote more connectivity in their classes without strict experiences.
My experience at granite hills has been interesting to say the least. I’m a senior and have been involved in sports, clubs and advanced classes. Each category is pretty good in my experience except the administration, they aren’t very helpful.
I like the relationships at Granite Hills. All of the kids are friendly with each other and nobody feels excluded at our school; every kid has a friend or friend group at Granite Hills. The sports are by far my favorite part of the Granite Hills experience. I am a baseball player and I enjoy being out on the field with my teammates/brothers because I know that they will have my back no matter what. Other sports are great as well; Friday night football games are a close second to baseball games. It is almost as much fun to be in the crowd as it is to be on the field. I used to play football, but I gave it up to focus on baseball. Anyway, the energy that is surrounded by football games is so immense that you can barely hear what's going on in the field.
I am currently in my second year attending Granite Hills High School. The staff has always been very welcoming and the upperclassmen are welcoming as well. One of the poor things at Granite Hills is the limited hangout space for the students. During lunch, the students are all crammed up in one area which doesn't feel safe or accommodating. Another one of the poor things about Granite Hills is the times the bathrooms are closed. After a certain period, there are some bathrooms that are closed which isn't very accommodating for the students and makes it very inconvenient.
I've liked the years that I've been here. I've made great friends, I've had great classes and teachers and the school spirit is good here. Football games and dances are always fun and the other rallies are great too. Classes are nice and there's an array of options like college prep, honors, AP and IB courses. However, even good schools have some issues. A lot of people have issues with class schedules and we have a lot of students, which is why it's this way.
Granite Hills High School led me to friends that I still keep in touch with today. At Granite Hills I developed a passion for medicine and I am currently acting on this passion by pursuing a Bachelor's Degree in Biomedical Engineering at Arizona State University.
