Grant Union High School Reviews

Attending Grant was a unique experience not only was there so much diversity which allowed me to work with amazing individuals and call them friends but what I loved most was the Criminal Justice Academy which shaped me into the great leader I am today with confidence and integrity. This program allowed me to participate in over 500 hours of community service in a wide variety of events. What I would change is the funding for this program, I feel like there’s a lot of funding for other programs and sports but not much for the Criminal Justice Academy which does contribute a lot of time and help to not only the school but the community. Overall my experience in Grant was amazing and most of the great memories I will never forget along with the friendships that I will forever cherish.

What I liked about Grant is overall the academic programs that it offers classes such as AP and honors and also the teachers that amazing and very helpful. Grant is very unique on how it provides different types of academics and your schedule is based off of whether you have an academy or not. There is a variety of sports and clubs offered every year for students to participate in. We have a lot spirit at our school like our pacerettes, marching band, and drum line who play at the games. I would suggest that the bathrooms could be a little bit cleaner but other than that it's a good school.
Being a student at Grant High School is something very significant in my life because it shaped me and I saw a positive change in myself. I was an extremely timid person and had deficiency in community skills. I met some friends who became part of my life and helped me grow and get out of my comfort zone. I loved how everyone was so gentle and compassion of others and willing to help those who were afraid to speak up, including myself. However, even though everyone cooperates with each in keeping the campus in peace, there is a problem that we all have in common, the facilities. I believe that the conditions of our facilities should be looked into since it’s not the best and it’s an obstacle that we, students face daily. The bathrooms are in poor conditions, some classrooms don’t have functional boards, which makes it difficult for the teachers to teach the lesson. If this was to be fixed, the students would achieve higher in their academics.
