    "I am very excited about this school. The teachers are excellent and attentive to the needs of the students. My kids love high school and look forward to going to school every day. This school as an excellent college focused curriculum. They also have excellent sports programs. Two of my kids are honor students and soon two more will be joining this school."

    "I graduated from GCHS in 2009 and am proud to say that. I understand people's frustrations with the district and will also admit that sports play a huge role in the school system, which isn't necessarily a good thing if it hinders the educational process. That being said, I recieved a quality education from k-12 with the exception of having a few teachers who were pathetic. You can find that anywhere though. I now attend St. Louis University, one of the most prestigous Jesuit institutions in the country...and I would add that I was fully prepared for it with the education I recieved from GCSD9. Yes, there are some bad politics in the district, but I blame mostly the students and parents for our lackluster academic standings. The best teachers in the world can't make a student learn if they don't want to or if their parents haven't instilled a sense of importance about education. Let's look at the where the real problems lie."

    "I have attended this school for two years, my freshman and sophomore years. I had a lot of fun in this school. The teachers in this school are fantastic. I have move to California now and I attend Castro valley High School, which is rated 9 out of 10; But Granite City High School is better. There is a lot of stupid people in this school, who do not want to learn, but the teachers are really doing their jobs. I have been in all the accelerated classes and I have learned way more than what I'm learning in my AP classes. I wish that granite City High School has Advanced Placement classes, that would count as if you have taken them in college."

    "I used to attend GCHS but unfortunatly have moved to another school district. While attending GCHS I did not understand some of the rules such as dress code and banning some hairstyles, and piercings. At my new school those things are allowed and i now understand the poind of those rules. Those a GCHS are lucky, and are getting a fair and great education. At granite education IS fair and doesnt dwell on being a jock or prep."
