    "The expectations are very high for students at my school, and this is in part due to some student's parents. People are attending multiple Ivy League institutions each year from our graduating class, and the pressure to join that group is always there. Not all parents put that pressure on their child, but it is definitely noticable"

    "The teachers at Garden City High School are top of the line educators who go above and beyond what is expected of them. I've never had a teacher that I felt wasn't extremely knowledgeable and that I couldn't ask for extra help when I needed it. The teachers are one of the many things that make Garden City High School as great as it is"

    "Theres a large choice of classes so everyone can take the classes the fit them the best. Science classes rage all the way from conceptual, to AP. The harder classes are HARD and you should expect a heavy workload, but in my opinion they're worth it and honestly more fun. Most teachers work hard to help students succeed but there are also lazy ones."

    "As far as racial diversity theres little to none. Theres only one african american in my grade and id say about 5 in the whole school. Theres more asians but not many. There are very few first generation Americans. Everyones really accepting of the LGBT community, and its definitely a factor in the school were all aware of. Theres very little assimilation of groups, like any school you have your cliques, but don't get me wrong, everyones really nice, just very little diversity."

    "Myself and my family never felt as disrespected as we have the past few years at this school! After learning I had dyslexia IN SOPHOMORE YEAR (the school really screwed up there) they made getting any needed accommodations and help a living hell because my grades were "too good" so basically you get punished for hard work. They definitely show favoritism toward their athletes, and they give some kids, usually the lazy kids, 100s of chances to do well in school, while the treat others very poorly and don't give them as many chances. The school has messed up signing me up for several crucial exams such as SAT's and ACTs. They even lost my final exam!! the actual teachers are great but the principals and the "higher up" staff members are some of the most awful, mean, hypocritical, and simply unfair people I've ever met."
