It's sad to say that the thing that I like best about granite is my friends. But one thing that I think is cool is that some of the science teachers have live animals in their classroom, which I think makes the class more interesting. The library looks cool because it has a upper and lower floor, but students aren't allowed to go up there.... Then what's the point at having it. Yes you need an adult because some kids are immature, but then again some like to read books. Well about lunch, the food is ok, it really depends on what you get. I think granite could use some more trees and tables because there's 2000 students and definitely not enough places to sit in the shade. The entire last year I had to stand because all the sitting places were taken. We need some new tables or benches in the shade. The main thing we need is money. But I'm afraid that if we get money then we're just going to spend it on something stupid like that granite bolder. Who needs a giant rock when you could use that money for something so much more useful.
Granite is great! The school's AP program is excellent, along with its teachers and staff. The extracurricular activities along with the athletic programs make the school even better. I would highly recommend this school to anyone considering whether or not to come to Granite.
Im Just a senior now and its a great awsome fun school thats were most of the kids go for high school i love it her and im sure ill miss this school after i graduate.
I have two students at Granite Hill and find the school to be very raciest to say the least,. Next when a teacher is absolutely wrong the staff looks the other way. My daughter was in a science class and the teacher removed her from the class and had her take a different test then her peers, when she complained she was ignored so she went to the board members of the district and nothing has been done. I send my children to school for an education not to be pick on by teachers who think they are right. Next this school does not celebrate black history month and has never, how ever at lunch every year they make sure they celebrate cinco de mayo. I wish they would treat all students the same.
This is my sons first year at GHHS. I love this school! After attending Silverado HS in Victorville, this school is a God send. At Silverado, his freshman year, he had 1600 students just in the freshman class. We were told only half of those would make it to their senior year and only half of those would graduate. Granite Hills is so much more about the individual student and not the masses that bring in the money. No school is perfect, but Granite Hill is pretty close.
As a parent of a one graduate and one current student I continue to have concerns about GHHS. Teachers are more concerned with what is good for them than their students. They teach curriculum not students. My biggest concern is with the administration. It is not child centered, it is only concerned with money, and the principal is disengaged with the student body and is only looking to make no waves as he attempts to move up the district ladder. If you are looking at GHHS as an incomming parent do yourself a favor and seek out one of the charter high schools.
Im a student and this school is disgusting trash just sits on the ground for several days, gum stuck on ground everywhere. School bathrooms havent had any soap since last year. It is almost like there is no janitor at all. Kids dont clean up. on stairs there is salad and pickles that have seem in the same spot since school started in august. this is the filthiest school i have ever attended. i will never let my kids in the future go here.
I had 2 children go to this school and never had any problems. Both had great grades and were in sports.
Granite Hills has excellent academic programs, especially AP, but they need to do more to involve parents. The choral and drama programs are also excellent.
I think that Granet is a great school. The teachers show interest in the childs learnung experience. The exteacurricular activies are great, they the children something to do other that get into trouble. Parents I think should be a little more involved, but for a High School IO think its much better, thatn most other High Schools.
Good School. My only bad point is the information comes too late or not at all, regarding grades, programs ect. We loved having a foreign exchange student this year!
Being a parent of three children at GHHS, I can say recently the quality of this school is going down hill. The administrative staff only seems to care about money and not the children. Alot has changed this year and if you ask the parents and children not for the best. There also are some problems with the athletic department. It seems that some sports get more privileges than others. The water polo and swim teams students have the highest gpa's of the all the sport teams but they are not given any thing. If it wasn't for the parents they would be non-exisitent. They need more recognition and privileges just like everyone else, most of all they need a pool.
This is so sad that such a beautiful school with so much potential has a hand full of wonderful instructors and a mouth full of hog wash. It's sad to think after knowing most of these kids for the better part of 10 years, They had to endure the heartache of loosing a principal they thought they trusted, and others who they thought were roll models. To the Class of '2004' may god bless you in all the decisions you make for the rest of your lives. CONGRADULATIONS!!!
I'm a parent and in the near future my son will most likely be attending Granite, of the posting I've read (mostly students) I'm a little concerened now especially when there's a comment made about 'high school isn't about education' what!? I understand every school has fights, every school has cliques, but the overall reason you are there is to learn! I guess I just have a functionalist perspective in regards to education.
I'm not a parent I'm a student. I love this school. The teachers and staff are really cool. The campus is neat and sure we have fights but they get handled. The students are nice to anyone who is nice to them and that is the way it is in the real world. I have learnd a lot for this school and I have to say this but I'm not looking forward to graduating in 2005. The campus is clean, test scores are good, to bad we can't say the same about all of our sports. Some parents say that we need to get involved but they do too. How many scools do you know of that have students that would high 5 a county kid in the special classes not many, but ours do. We have a lot of cool people here.
I have found that teachers are concerned about students progress and maintain good contact with the parents overall. The school is clean and discipline policies are quickly and efficiently enforced for the safety of our children. The quality education provided to our son is excellent. Thank you to all the administrators and teachers!
This school is the best in the high desert. It had its spur of fights during October, but they handed it right away! Unlike AVHS. The sports are great and this year Vista Campanas Ms. Stueland is there. The teachers are great and the Campus is great!
granite hills high was the best time of my life school isn't all about learning and doing everything right, it's about being a kid and having fun, getting to know people and doing everything you can in a 4 year span.
