My experience with Granite was absolutely amazing! Every staff member there goes out for students whenever in need. Everyone at Granite is so respect and helpful. Granite staff members will take time out of there lesson and help you if in need, there always givin opportunity’s to helps others aswell. In my opinion granite is such a positive environment. One thing I would change from Granite is to have more time for tutoring.

My time at Granite Hills High School was memorable. The four years were filled with everlasting moments of happiness, sadness, and everything else in between. Even though it wasn't always perfect, nothing is. There is always room for improvement and that is just what Granite Hills High School is doing. Go Grizzlies!
What I really loved about Granite Hills High School is the teachers and its activities. Granite Hills in Porterville hires amazing teachers that, after four years, become your family. As for the campus, Granite Hills is generally clean for an enrollment of over 1000 students. There are some parts of the area that do need more attention than others in terms of being cleaned. Granite Hills provides a multitude of activities and classes for its students, such as choir, art, journalism, and law enforcement. Some of their clubs include the Anime Club, Excel Club, and Z-Club. However, Granite Hills doesn't really create a push on scholarships and making sure of your college applications. Overall, Granite Hills is the best high school I've ever known, and I am so glad to graduate from there.
