Ganesha High School serves over 1,000 on a daily basis, and is located in a low-income community. As my third year at Ganesha, I have taken the initiative to produce some change. Change in the areas were students seem to focus on which are the school meals and the restrooms. The school food, compared to other high schools, is rated negatively by the majority of the students. Many students would rather pass on lunch then eat the food being served, since the food is sometimes served cold, or is rather served poorly. Ganesha High School along with the rest of the local schools should not be underestimated due to the reputation the community obtains. Why not spark a change in the school meals, and see what are the POSITIVE consequences.
I can honestly say Ganesha is an exceptional school. I'm a freshman there and there are so many clubs like Anime club, The Green club, Math club, Bible club,The Latina club, French club and so on. They have wonderful programs like Avid(they claim to have the best Avid program California) the academic ellective that prepares them for college,Trio Upward Bound the program that gives tutoring to all students after school three times a week in their library, and other excellent acedmic programs. They also provide vocational classes for upper classmen, an Orchestra, Marching Band, Jazz band, And Quoir. They also have good leadership programs like ASB and JROTC. They also have very good teachers and more AP classes than some other schools. They also have a lot of fun school events and students will not feel out of place with the students here. People are friendly and the schools extensive programs and clubs will provide students to grow as an individualDid I also mention their 2012 validectorian graduated with a 4.9 and now attends Brown. And like many have said, if your student isn't suceeding in Ganesha, they problaly dont want to
At first the school may look ghetto, run down, and not a place you want to spend 4 years, but the teachers actually care. Students tell off teachers and they come back year after year and still continue teaching. The teachers are the ones that make the difference. Ganesha has the best math dept. in the district and has better AP scores than Diamond Ranch which gets all the money. The only reason it's not better is because it gets very little funding. Students are constantly fundraising for everything!!! I'm in college now and really appreciate where I came from.
the school is great we are not a rich school but it's what the staff and students do that counts and it's great!
I went 3/4 years to Ganesha and I had a great experience. Before going I heard horrible things about the school and there was a point my mom didn't want to send me there. But I'm so glad she did. Of course, it's not a great school because of the lack of money and things of that nature but overall most teachers really seem to care.. and they try to help you find a good college and what not. They also have a lot of good groups and clubs to join. And as a former student I must say this high school is very unique, while I attended there I didn't see any cliques or anything of of the type. Also, like someone said before me, it doesn't matter what the school is like, what they say about it or where it's located, if you want to succeed you will.
As a former student of Ganesha, I can proudly say that it is great. I graduated two years ago, and am now at one of the top liberal arts colleges in the nation. As any California school, it has its disadvantages (budget cuts hurt everyone), but if your student has the will to succeed, your student will succeed. The teachers are amazing, and really try to prepare their students for college and life after high school. At Ganesha, if you don't succeed, it's usually because you don't want to. As a former history teacher of mine said to me, if there's a will, there's a way.
Ganesha High School. Fantastic School. Its A School That Has A Bad Reputation only because it is located in Pomona. I Think this school is by far one of the best schools in the area. They offer way more AP courses than Garey or Pomona and they have fantastic teachers. Mr.Muteti might be the best teacher Ganesha has to offer, but keep in mind that Ganesha has the some of the best teachers that really care for thei students.
Im a recent Graduate of Ganesha High School and felt I should put in my word for the school. I believe this school overall helped turn me into a better person and a contribute to society. I am very proud to have attended Ganesha High School. I met the best people in the world and studied along with very intelligent students. In addition, I may mention that out school has one of the best survivors club in the state, survivors club is designed to help students find their way to college. You'll be sorprised to know that we have never in the school's history had so many students attending top of the nation universities such as Yale, MIT, and UCLA.
i think the school is cool because some of the teachers understand whats going on at home.
This is an amazing school. I have only been teaching two years, and Ganesha is working hard to ensure that all the teachers are highly qualified. The teacher support I have received is unmatched, and teacher volunteer their time on weekends to help students. There is no place I would rather be.
I think of ganesha as a good school. It those not have the best test score but it has a good soccer, cross country, and trak team. So if you are good in sports it will be good to come too this school. Some classe are hard but some are easy, but in all its a good school whith good teacher with kid that are willing too learn.
I think Ganesha is great.The teachers here are awesome and they really seem to care about the childrens education.The clubs here are also good. They got choir, green club, anime club, gamming club, asb, Jrotc drill team, color guard, and lots more. The students here get along with each other so theres not that many fights as there used to be back in the days.What im trying to say is that ganesha is a great school and im hope will get more students to come here trust me its the smartest thing your ever do. They child will love it here. Im sure they will fit in at this school not only becuase of the clubs but becuase ganeshas adminstrators care for the childerens safty and care for there education.
this school is a good school because it dosn't have that many fights and when there are some figths the procters come fast to stop it. This school is is also cool because we have a lot of rallies. the teachers in this school are kind and you can trust them.
I think this school is pretty good.I feel safe and welome in this school. Its probably not the best school but its in pretty good shape.
This is one of the best schools I have ever seen! The teachers or so kind an helpful! They really care about their students!
I attended Ganesha high school first hand and I believe that it is a school with great aspects. There are dedicated teachers that love to teach and will not leave until every student has received their fair share of education. Materials such as books have been renewed, while technology is rapidly increacing with the use of projectors smart boards and lap-tops. There is a new future in Pomona and it is beggining with Ganesha. Besides they have an amazing soccer team for which the school shows tremendous support for.
Ganesha is an overall okay school, comparable to any of the other high schools in the district with the exception of Diamond Ranch. The academics are lacking but there are many really good teachers there. There is also a pretty good selection for extracurricular activities.
This was the worst high school I have ever seen. Books are outdated, teachers uninterested in teaching, and the school just appears dirty. This high school did not prepare me for college or gave me the support I needed to exceed in life. Avoid this school at all cost.
