Granger is a good place to go where I feel safe. Most of the teachers help us out, but sometimes it's boring. I wish we had more cooler ones. My 2 AVID teachers and my Mr. Math 7 teacher are THE BEST!!!

Granger is OK. There are volunteer supervisors whom aren't motivated to help students, and there is a mind numbing "Game Room" with two X-Boxes, what a waste!.

i am currently a student in Granger Junior High School. I believe that its a very diverse school, and it makes learning fun. But when testing time comes along it gets hectic. But the teachers always find a way to get us prepared.

I'm a student currently attending granger. Granger teachers are too mean, too nice or too strict. In my biology class, everyone copies each others homework because our teachers nice. One of the schools only geometry teachers, just tells us to read this, do that and answer. Then almost all teachers have made fun of a student at one time even, jokingly. The school board doesn't care about student opinions. If they did there would be a student council like in an elementary school 2 miles away. For 3 years I've been writing letters to the school and signing petitions. The school emails don't work.t In addition, the academic programs are too challenging and only a little helpful. All of my friends having been getting bad grades around the time of quarterlies. To now after break.The teachers tried to cram a lot of info the week before testing.

This school is highley educated. I look up to this school because i am a 7th grader currently going to Granger Junior High. The students there agree that Granger is the best middle schools in the district. Granger has the best classes there and supports their students.

This school is amazing. It has excellent teachers. Success is the only option at Granger. It has been nominated to be a blue ribbon school. They have improved over the years. They aslo have a program called aec witch it helps students by getting them to stay after school and do what they missed out on and there is tutors from SDSU to help them. They are the onl school in the distric that has it. It also has mandatory retake test where if you got a 65% or lower you would go to tutoring with the teacher review and retake the test. This school is truly amazing and I am proud to be a Garnger griffin.

Granger is the best school in my opinion the principal is focused on the students and their education. Even now i have been trying to find another middle school that is that advanced to have geometry for 8th graders. I wish that i wouldn't need to leave but it's true 'Once a Griffin, Always a Griffin'

I think Granger Jr High is an amazing school. I'm going into my final year at Granger and, honestly, I dont want to leave. Granger's faculty and staff has really helped me a lot in becoming a better person. I'm staying at Granger for 9th grade year because I feel that it will better help me prepare for High School. 'Expect More, Achieve More.' Those are the words I've heard since 7th grade, and they have really helped me throughout my 7th and 8th grade years there. Although my last year at Granger is coming up in September, I know: 'Once a Griffin, Always a Griffin' Here's to my second home and family:)
