The quality of academics appear to be good. However, because of a high enrollment, and lack of funds, the approach to teaching the subjects is more like warehouseing our kids through the process. There is little time given to fully grasp concepts. Additionally, parent involvement is discouraged, and actually frowned upon when one makes the attempt. Extreme lack of communication between school and home exists. Granada's staff defintely makes a parent feel uncomfortable when asking questions, or addressing concerns. However, if a parent persists, their concern will be acknowledged, and followed through. Extra-curricular activities are not many, again due to budget cuts. However, the few they have are not promoted very well. Thus, unless your child heard about it, shows an interest, you will probably not be aware of them, unless you actually investigate. Overall, the school gets straight to business with the resources allocated, and handles parents at arms length.
