Grant has a lot to offer! From academies, to sports and academic clubs. I enjoyed all 4 years. I’m in the Academy of Rhythm Technology & Stage Production (ARTS). It’s the most fun I’ve ever had! I doubt I would have had as much fun in high school if I went somewhere else.

My experience in Grant Union High School was great compared to what other students have to say. I met with great classmates , counselors, teachers, and staff. I had very supportive and helpful teachers that guided me towards the right path. What I enjoyed the best in Grant Union High School was the opportunities that I got by joining the GEO academy. The academy has let us cook healthy foods, that we had no idea of. Students in the academy learned the importance of healthy food, composting, and interacting with nature. This is why I liked attending Grant Union High School. If something could change about Grant Union High School it would be the bell schedule. I believe that school starting so early has always been a struggle for me and other students. It becomes a challenge when you have younger siblings and you have to take them to school. Most of the times one misses breakfast from not having enough time.
I really liked my experiences with some of the teachers who showed me a lot of support and helped me prepare for college. Although this may be because I took AP classes and Honor classes, I know not everyone had the same experiences. We are very diverse but horrible amount of resources when it comes to library, computers, even decent classrooms, and the bathrooms never were clean even usable when there was no functioning locks, toilet paper, soap, or paper towels.
