    Overall Experience: The staff at this school care about education, safety and extracurricular activities of their student. The school allows students to reach maximum potential intellectually and athletically. Although the rules are enforced with little exceptions this helps create the fundamentals for a great school.

    Overall Experience: It's great- wonderful teachers that actually care about you. Its just that the administrators treat you like a number and run the school like a business rather than a place with kids that want to go far and grow.

    Overall Experience: I loved this school so much. I spent my entire freshman and junior years, and spring semester of my sophomore year. I was sorry to leave and I would have loved to have graduated from it. I really liked the structure of the school, the people I met and the environment in general. It felt very welcoming. Most people would say high school was hell, but for me it was a wonderful experience. My teachers were all very helpful and I liked that their classes challenged me without being overwhelming, something I found myself missing when comparing Granada to the school I transferred to. If I could have stayed for my senior year, I would have. But I think everything turned out for the best. I did get into UCLA, after all.

    Overall Experience: Many of the teachers care about your education and how you succeed in life and at school. The work isn't too difficult, but it does push you to do your best and not procrastinate. The environment is welcoming and open, and there are many friendly faces around campus. The principle of the school takes the time to interact with the students everyday during lunch, as he walks around the cafeteria keeping an eye on his students. Overall, I had a great high school experience.

    Overall Experience: This school is very rigorous which helps create an environment of stability, professionalism and integrity.

    I am in the Marching band and I enjoy performing at various functions and events that promote this school.

    I would choose this school again based on the parental involvement, rigorous academic curriculum and extraordinary marching band..
