Granada High School is located in the midst of housing tracts in Livermore, California. Livermore changed from an agrarian community to a growing suburban community at the end of World War II. This change was escalated by the development of the research laboratory that started in the 1950s as a reaction to the United States' role as a nuclear power. The Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory is still a major employer in the community. The growth of the Bay Area as a leader in the area of technology has also changed the nature of the Livermore community, as has the recent development of the local wine industry.
Granada High School opened its doors to students in January, 1963. It is one of two comprehensive high schools in the Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District. Opening enrollment this year was over 2000 students in grades 9-12. Our student body is 68% Caucasian, 17% Hispanic or Latino, and the other 15% is made up of various ethnic groups. Based upon information given to us by students when they graduate, approximately 32% of our graduates start college at four-year schools; 52% start at community colleges. There are presently four administrators, one hundred teachers, three counselors, and a fifty-member support staff that includes custodians, campus supervisors, office clerical, a school resource officer, an athletic director, and instructional assistants. Although there has been significant turnover in our staff in recent years, Granada remains a blend of experienced and new, with many of our teaching staff having been at Granada for over twenty-five years.
