The teachers are great!. GHS is highly accredited due to the teachers. Administration has been lax with discipline. Some of the students are making it hard for the other students to learn. These students are making it very difficult for the teacher to teach. GHS is going to find it self in trouble if ...  Read more

GHS is a great school. As a sophomore in the Cambridge program, I feel challenged but not overwhelmed. There's a variety of interesting classes, electives, clubs, and sports. The faculty is friendly, reachable, and very helpful. The school is clean and well kept with the administrators pitching in to ...  Read more

We chose GHS with great expectations for the Cambridge Program. GHS has been profoundly disappointing, anyone moving here from the NE would find woefully inadequate teachers, classrooms without AC, sub par labs and overall pitiful infrastructure that seems unchanged since the 1950s. GHS Cambridge faculty ...  Read more

I have had two children attend this school, one being in the highly academic Cambridge program and the other in mainstream classes. Most of the teachers are involved and very concerned about their students, overall a 4. The biggest negative is the administration and lack of support for children and ...  Read more

GHS is a great school ! My son is taking honors classes and is high ranking in NJROTC. The teachers are wonderful and are easy to get a hold of. The school offers online classes which are wonderful but I think that there needs to be more instruction for the online classes by the class monitor. Otherwise, ...  Read more

I just read the last evaluation written by a student and have to respond. My daughter is a senior at GHS and in the Cambridge program. With probably one exception, she has had very excellent teachers and an a great experience! She is challenged, and has been very comfortable asking teacher for letters ...  Read more

I attended GHS in the Cambridge program as i found it to be below satisfactory. The environment at this school does not make you feel safe and is also very overcrowded, almost to the point of danger. The teachers don't have any one on one focus with you, even when having a good relationship with your ...  Read more

Great school as a whole but needs to treat students fairly along the lines of dress code within women. Its seems as though the school is a bit racist and misogynist, calling out only women for dress code, and only blacks for trouble making. If you wear a skirt even a fourth of an inch shorter than your ...  Read more

I'm pretty sure all these ratings are from parents which kids are doing great in schoo, but when it comes to the ones that are doing really bad in school, it's another story. They never answer e-mails (they're using technology), I sent two of them. Once, they asked me to go to school to talk about ...  Read more

I'm a student who is not in the Cambridge program and it's difficult for me to find something positive to say about this school. The Cambridge program has absolutely destroyed the school for anyone who's not in it. Even the AP classes are now worthless because most of the decent teachers and resources ...  Read more
