Map of Granite Hills High School address.

I transferred from Porterville High School to Granite Hills my senior year after taking AP English and AP U.S. History at Granite Hills my junior year (I still attended PHS for the rest of my classes.) While the city has failed to acknowledge the success of their smallest public high school, Granite Hills is BY FAR the better school with an award-winning online newspaper, the best AP class selection, AP teachers, and AP student scores, two former recipients of the Gate Millenium Scholarship, and more. PHS barely beats Monache with a near zero pass rate on most AP exams.

Granite Hills High School is one of the most under rated high schools in Porterville and it really shouldn't be. It has the most qualified staff of educators that work really hard to inspire students to pursue a higher education. The campus is amazing and beautiful. The programs associated with the school are all top notch. This high school on the East Side of Porterville has quietly been making a name for itself and with champs in the classroom and on the playing field it's only right that they get the recognition they work so hard to earn.

This school is an excellent school with a beautiful campus that outshines nearby schools. It's Academic Decathlon team wins county competition every year and goes to state competition. It's online newspaper, the Grizzly Gazette, has been named a top three winner in the nation from the NSPA Online Pacemaker Award, and is waiting on results for the year 2008. It's AP program has the highest pass rate in the district, and it has more students go off to college after high school than any other high school in the district. With great teachers and a very very nice and involved principal, who wouldn't want to go to Granite Hills High School?

I am an Alumni from Granite Hills. Granite Hills was the best 4 years of my life. I made friends that will always be there and the best memories. The staff was always amazing and willing to help, as well as the students. Everyone gets along and tries to make the school great. Even though Granite is on the East side, it still beats all of the other schools hand down.
