    "We are very pleased with Granite Bay High School. First let me begin by saying our daughter was a transfer student from Sacramento Country Day School her sophomore year and we are so grateful to SCDS for advancing her the way they did while there. What brought our attention to GBHS was the newly implemented IB program that we were familiar with and so eagerly wanted DD to participate in. Also the convenience of the school being up the street, so no more rush hour drives into Sacramento. DD loved the thought of being able to participate in EC's because that was difficult at SCDS due to distance. GBHS staff allowed her to fully embrace her academics with continual support when needed. The IB curriculum was very vigorous which led to many tears at her computer on early mornings, but thats what made her. Her involvement in Speech and Debate and Track and Field taught her responsibility to manage her time while keeping her GPA up in IB. The school fostered a confidence in DD which will be everlasting and we are so grateful for that. Thank you Granite Bay for providing the vital tools needed so my DD can continue her academic journey with confidence at Dartmouth College, 'Class of 2017'!"

    "I only got to attend GBHS for a while, however I loved it there and thrived as a student. We have great sports programs,challenging classes, and great electives! I fell in love with this school and its people. I think there is always going to be drama at any school. sure the stereotypical picture of granite bay students are rich, but they're not all spoiled brats, and rich. There's plain jane average people like me there! Plus, I absolutely adored the staff. All my teachers were very caring and they knew what best to teach the kids. When i first came to the school as a freshman I felt so welcomed. I took spanish 1 and 2, which are great classes! You'll also never find any other art program quite like GB's, the art classes are amazing. whether its drama or actual art, or ceramics, you're guranteed to have fun! And don't forget to join the tribe. The football games are so fun and its a great way to participate, same with the dances! Don't miss out, being a grizzly is amazing!"

    "My first experience with GBHS was when we listened to orientation for incoming freshmen, a current student at the podium said it can be lonely here and your friends will continue to change; wait she didn't just say that in front of parents and faculty? It's true, doesn't matter if your average or the popular cheerleader, kids are mean here. Yes, the IB/AP program is good, but unless you are at the top, you would be better off being closer to the top at a smaller school like Oakmont. Think about how best to package your child for college, before you send your child to GBHS, would you rather them be in the top 25% at GB or top 10% at Oakmont or Del Oro? Don't be fooled, most parents are asleep at the wheel and have no idea what their kids are up to or how they are being treated. As for the Administration here, they do what they can, it's a big school, but they do not have control of the school compared to other high schools in the area. I'm not trying to put down the administration, but they simply do not have strong enough leadership skills to make this school what it should be. The Eureka School District is great, so what the heck happens when these kids land at GBHS?"
