Positive experience thus far, there are more positives that keep me here.

It is an all around awful experience. I had been a popular, well liked girl. This is not biased. I see kids going around calling girls thots. Bullying is a common occurrence.

Don't think this school can compete anymore after it was moved to a 4-day school week by Sue Shannon. Not the teachers' fault, when there's not enough time. Whitell used to be #1 in Douglas County & NV. No more..

I was a student at GWHS it is a horrible school I had maybe 30 minutes of homework a night barely, which would be a good thing if it wasn't for the whole college thing. They might prepare you to go to UNR but other than that little to none electives including spanish, art, culinary arts and I cant really think of any other electives. Kids are horribly mean and teachers don't do anything about it. One teacher even partakes in the bullying! I changed schools after a year and a half and dont ever want to go back.

Terrible school. All the classes are too easy, there are almost no electives, and they are terrible with handling bullying. My son was bullied for two years at this school (getting shoved into lockers, having his lunch shoved out of his hands, and constantly being harassed). The principal did nothing about it, and ignored all the calls we made. Finally, we had to move just so my son wouldn't be afraid to go to school. Now at Reno High School, he is much happier and more confident.
