You need to be aware of the teacher's association. They will put themselves before your child. Once your child is profiled by anyone of them, your child will not get a fair education at this school. The Principle and the Twin River District aka Grant Union District will not aid you in correcting it. Your child will be put under great stress, needed instruction will be withheld, and they will receive unfair grades. I suggest if your child is in this school district and is having problems, remove them immediately and place them in a charter school. This school will keep them from getting a fair education and get paid for it at their expense. The Principle and the Twin River District aka Grant Union District will do little or no a thing to help your child secure a fair education, it is all about the money.

Grant high school is such and amazing and diverse school!.. the teachers are very motivational and creative in their techniques. there are many clubs and after school programs which make this school so much more better. The academic courses there have a hint of difficulty and can use a little more emphasis but overall, this school is amazing!

Teachers are good but es to hard get in contact with them they never call you back. May be they are too busy.

Grant is a good school. The AP teachers are the best, but the school is more focused on the sports and football. The students who have good grades are not recognized until graduation day and even though Grant is known for football, its the worst when it comes to academics.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
