About Us

GRANADA HILLS CHARTER LEADS. Granada Hills Charter prepares students to take charge of their future. Led by a group of visionary leaders, teachers and parents, the school first opened in 1960 and converted to an independent charter school in 2003. With its fiscal, governance and instructional program independence, the GHC community has created a powerful learning environment in which all students are able to thrive.
TODAY, Granada Hills Charter High School is one of the largest independent charter high schools in the country with more than 4,750 students walking the breezeways on two sites, the Zelzah main campus and the Devonshire campus (formerly Pinecrest School). GHC continues to serve students and families who reside within the pre-charter residential attendance boundary and provides open enrollment to all others. Each year we have a long waiting list of 2,000+ hopeful students seeking the excellent and diverse curricular, extracurricular, and athletic opportunities of a vibrant comprehensive high school.
