    "Clovis Unified district policy for HS students: A student who wishes to graduate early (either at mid-year or one year early) must petition for prior administrative approval. Mid-Year graduates will not be allowed to participate in the graduation ceremony or end of the year senior activities. So, if a student wants to participate in their graduation ceremony they must attend school with a min.of 4 classes, but if they're ahead credits then classes must be filled w/electives that are non-required, which is punishment for being ahead credits. My niece moved to Fresno & attends Clovis North HS. She was told that to fill her schedule with electives or finish early, except she forfeits her right to come back to attend the year end graduation ceremony. She was made aware of this option when she asked why elective classes were being pushed on her. Ridiculous! And my niece has straight As this year! Now she has no choice but to continue going to this school and taking unneccesary classes, or finish now since she completed everything and forfeit her graduation ceremony. I complained to Norm Anderson at the school district, he refused to do anything about this matter, that CUSD put in place."

    "As parents of students who transferred from nationally "top" ranked schools in the Bay Area, we have been delighted with the quality of teaching, the friendliness of the kids, the attractiveness of the campus and the shared positive attitude of staff, faculty, administration, kids and parents. The chioce of electives is less broad than in our old district, and I wish there were more robust studio art, but the choir and drama programs are top notch! I have to disagree with the previous poster about rote learning; as a parent I have emphasized creative thinking and I have not seen my kids penalized for it. Kudos to principal Scott Dille for creating an environment that attracts fabulous teachers to an amazing team that leads to a wonderful learning environment. Dress code is clear and makes for a calmer school atmosphere - time to experiment outside of school, focus on learning in school. No school is perfect, and no school is a great fit for every kid, but this school really seems to work hard to be an excellent school for a wide variety of kids. They have to be ready and willing to work hard and put their best effort forward, and I believe they will get a lot out of it."

    "Considered one of the best but probably only because they have high grades (GPA) due to their teachers programming them with constant repetition of problems or material and then testing them on that. I have had the opportunity to tutor some students from there. In math they lack creativity or the ability to comprehend how to solve a problem from any other perspective than the one shown to them. Their math teachers give them formulas and simply tell them to plug it in and repeat. In a situation where a problem in the textbook varies slightly the student is stuck with no idea how to solve it. The writing assignments are terrible. Students are given a broad topic, which should be a good thing, but the teacher only wants one product and anything differing from what they want is graded down. Their chemistry courses are a joke with teachers who confuse students with mind-numbing procedures that do not explain the reason why they do what they do. Conversions from moles to mass and such have no meaning just memorized processes with given formulas. Kids are set to succeed at their high school but fail in college and real life. Sad."

    "After reading some of the reviews, I almost feel like I am living on a different planet and we're not talking about the same school that my kids have been attending. I am amazed at the management and facilities offered by the school. I am grateful that the kids get to attend the school. Slowly, and steadily, they have risen from being average to being above average and star quality. Their home environment, of course, contributes, but the school makes a significant difference. Its teamwork, in my opinion. They COULD NOT have done any better anywhere else. I'm immensely thankful, and grateful to the management and teaching staff of Granite Ridge, and CNEC for creating this masterpiece."

    "Awful Awful Awful, can't say it enough. If you truly want your child to enjoy school don't send them to Clovis North. Bad teachers and bad staff, harassing kids over trivial issues. If your child has a disability I would recommend Charter School as CN thinks their too good for children that need a little help. Uneducated staff and teachers!"
