    My children attend this school... Already with the new principal they hate it. She has taken away everything from them and they can't celebrate their birthdays with classmates. They each have over 35 kids per classroom and most classes are combo classes. This school has very low test scores maybe its time to reevaluate the teachers instead of striking everything from the kids. Don't get me started about their afterschool program ASES. The district head is awful shows up at meetings saying Granada is the worst school for donations throws items on the floors and intimidates the poor kids. They brought in a new team last year and my god they are mean. The lady in charge can't be nice to anyone and she could care less about the kids. For some reason this is the school all the Transfer and Permit kids come too... when will it stop. When will AUSD bring money back to this school instead of all the others. This school needs a wake up call from the Federal and State Superintendents Office... Better yet maybe a CHARTER SCHOOL.

    My daughter goes to Granada and she really loves the atmosphere that is there. I love it too. Granada has that family spirit. No matter what the teachers and students will always remain friends no matter what. My daughter is in 7th grade and she says that the teachers are nice to talk to. They also make sure that no student fails a class and if they do there is always afterschool tutoring availiable. Granada Lions are the way to go. The staff and students are always hardworking in part of making Granada a wonderful place to go to.
