Grant Union High School Reviews

Throughout high school my academics have been encouraged continuously. My school takes high initiative in providing opportunities for it's low income community's students to strive for and achieve success. If it wasn't for my school's amazing faculty and Advanced Placement curriculum, I would not have became the academically competent and strong individual I am today. The school itself, although it has a bad reputation for being ghetto, is one of the best schools a person developing into adulthood can attend.
Review Grant Union High School
UC Davis is definitely a great school. It's location has good neighborhoods and has a really good vibe and environment. I can tell many people care for their city. This school is filled with open minded and friendly people. The education system is also great. There's always help when you need it. I think the reason why I wouldn't rate it the best is because of my personal likings. I knew about Davis and been around there since I was a little girl. I didn't live in Davis but I had family who attended Davis before I did. So I guess I wanted new experiences and sights which would bring me to much more excitement. Other than that, Davis is awesome! Go Ags!
Grant Union high school is an amazing and awesome high school. I love their academies that they have there. I am in their Criminal Justices Academy and I had have a lot of help to be prepare for college. Not just Criminal Justice academy that help but their Advance placement classes and the inspiring teachers. They get you ready for college and the teachers share their experiences with us, so we are able to achieve what we would like to do.
