Granville High School Reviews
While the education was most definitely superior, often times I felt as though the mental health of some students was being compromised for the sake of higher academic achievement. I also feel like the district chooses to ignore the lack of diversity and it results in lack of diverse thought which stifles intelligent conversation, something that a school like Granville should be encouraging among its students. Besides the inability to facilitate diverse and deeper thinking, as well as a definite presence of "bully culture" the school is academically very impressive.
What I love about Granville High School is that it is a school with a rigorous curriculum that I feel has adequately prepared me for college. I am continuously pushed out of my comfort zone and end up accomplishing projects and works that I never thought myself capable of. Unfortunately, with such a challenging environment, often times I think there is more emphasis put on grades than on the actual students. The levels of stress I have experienced as a student are embarrassingly high, most often due to feeling overwhelmed. The dilemma, however, is that in order for Granville to retain its prestigious reputation, it must continue to push its students. As a student, I was lucky to have a supportive family who reminded me my value does not come from grades. Even though I know I received and excellent education at Granville, sometimes that education came at a cost of unnecessary stress which I think could be prevented.
Invested in arts, heavily. Including music, literature, and history. Lack in math, but local college (Denison University) lets high-school students take classes for high school credit. Also OSU-newark and COTC are close-by. Community is small, elderly, not poor, with some chains but mostly small businesses (=higher taxes for residents). Good teachers mostly. Class sizes of about 200.
