    "Granada has the potential to be a first-class school, but instead is third-rate because of poor administrators, not only at the school, but also at the District office. Instead of setting high expectations and then helping both staff and students to meet or exceed those high expectations, administrators want parents and students to be happy, which means for all students to have good grades, whether or not the grades have been earned. To this end, administration hires teachers on the basis of their popularity, not competence, and rewards teachers who inflate grades, while punishing teachers who give the honest grades that students actually earn. The principal is the chief culprit in this nefarious scheme; she plays favorites among staff, punishing those who won't play her game. She is incompetent and ethically-challenged. She lurches from one crisis to another, when with foresight and planning, she could have avoided the crises altogether. Granada has many teachers who are dedicated professionals and it has a student body which could rise to higher expectations, but Granada will never be a great school as long as it has the administrators it has currently."

    "Granada is considered the best school in Livermore, but quite frankly, Livermore is a far better school. Most of the teachers have been awful at Granada and are only concerned about the money instead of students education. The administration is terrible and many students are far too immature compared to any other high school in the area. Highly recommend you send your kid to Livermore High School instead of Granada."

    "Recently my daughter graduated from this school. To be honest I dont feel that this school is very competitive against the fellow high schools in Alameda county. Look at Dublin High that is emerging from below everyone and is surging to be as competitive as DVH in San Ramon. We need a strong leader that will motivate staff and students to excel. Raising the bar and measuring it will get the whole community involved and bring about diversification. I hope the principle reads this and decides on a game change. I would like to see Granada High in the same bucket as San Ramon, Danville and Fremont High Schools. Livermore needs a Good School to boast about and Ive been waiting and hoping since the last 12 years of living here."

    "Overall a very good high school. My daughter just graduated two days ago and I have been satisfied. The math department could be stronger and we've had some issues with the foreign language teachers. One thing that I love about it is the wide selection of elective courses. So many schools are eliminating these, but they still offer them. My daughter took marine biology and loved it. I have to admit, I'm not a fan of the current principal. She has mishandled two incidents with one of the teams my daughter was on. She over-reacts. Perhaps she will be better once she is secure in her job, as she is new. She should take a breath and learn to think before she reacts to issues. T"
