    "I am currently an alumnus at G.M.E.L.S. I was a part of the very first four graduating classes. Class of 2015. One thing that I liked about G.M.E.L.S was the student to teacher ratio. The classroom sizes are extremely small which gave you a lot of one on one time with the teachers any time you needed help. My graduating class was 123 students. As well as the diversity. My favorite thing about the school was even though we went to a uniformed school, we got to wear our uniform the way we wanted to. We could put our own individuality, style, and flare into the way we wore it. One thing that I can say I would like to change about that school while attending was there was not much extracurricular activities, clubs, or different organizations offered. There were very little options when it came to doing things outside of school work. All in all, the school was extremely sanitary and I indeed felt safe."

    "In my four years at Mccown, I have created the best memories. I have had the best teachers to help push me towards my academic goals."

    "I love how my school has intensives week where we don't need to do classwork and just have fun for a week. This is a deserved respite in the middle or end of March when there is usually no breaks. For example, this year, my senior year, I had the burger intensive where I go to go to multiple burger places to try their burgers and understand how these burger places made their burgers. Such as how they mixed their patties and all the other condiments that they put inside. I also enjoy how my school is very big on community service and we have many service projects that contribute to a worthy cause. For instance, my school hosts an annual John's Pasta Party that raises money for survivors of cancer to a college education. Overall, I loved my four years at Gaynor McCown ELS even though it was not my first choice of high school. I do not regret my choice in staying at McCown and I hope others will feel the same way. McCown has given me many memories that I would not trade for anything."

    "After attending this school for 4 years, I have mostly negatives to say unfortunately. first, since this is a government public school, don't expect much. This school offers us too muchleeway and doesn't allow to suffer consequences if we make bad decisions. In general, this school isn't preparing us for life. With this howl system, the school is rewarding us or punishing us by daily things that should be expected of students at our age. HOWL system judges our ability to come in to class on time, take our notebook and make sure we are actively participating in class. This should already be expected of us and the school shouldn't pat our backs when we do this. This is one of the many things that hinder this schools performance and ability of preparing for the real world."
