I graduated from GCHS in 2009 and am proud to say that. I understand people's frustrations with the district and will also admit that sports play a huge role in the school system, which isn't necessarily a good thing if it hinders the educational process. That being said, I recieved a quality education ...  Read more

As an educator and former student at GCHS, I believe that any motivated student can earn a top notch education at this high school. Discipline is enforced to allow those who want to learn to have the opportunity for a good learning environment. In a school of this size, students who need special counseling ...  Read more

Pretty stict discipline in place. I like that. Teachers vary in their requirements of the students, some requiring very little in terms of participation, quality of work turned in, and neatness. Web site for the school is very good and most information can be attained there. The size of the school ...  Read more

This district is a nightmare. I have children with special needs in the special education program, as well as children who receive a regular education in this district. The special education program is unorganized, inadequate and stone age. Educators in this district may blame lack of parental involvement ...  Read more
