    "Overall it wasn't a bad experience. They gave me the needed help I needed. Teachers are great, very supportive and want to see their students pass. Students weren't so great."

    "My overall experiance at G.A.R is amazing ! I've spent 6 years going to this school since my 7th grade. Every year is a year that you won't forgot because in this school we don't judge people on there race or diversity we treat everyone the same and that is what I love about this school. The teachers and faculty are always there to help students when they need it. For most teacher we become more like their children instead of just regular students that they teach each year. I have learned so much as academics to how to pick a career that I want to study just by experiencing every class. G.A.R is simply filled with great people in a small town and I hope students will continue to see how great of a school this is."

    "I have attended GAR Memorial since November of 2014. To say that my experience there was amazing would be an understatement. GAR influenced my character both morally and creatively. From the teachers to the students, GAR is a respected school in my eyes. I use to be a shy girl. I would get red when people would speak to me, I would be afraid to answer questions in class and I would scurry away from most anything and anyone. Attending GAR, I broke out of my shell and became a social elite. I participated in a school Musical in my freshman year and got a leading role. In my sophomore year I had attended district chorus and sang in the talent show in front of many people---including peers and family. I now participate in class, raise my hands to answer questions and don't scurry away from the people who interact with me. The teachers and students at GAR influenced me greatly."

    "The teachers at GAR are the best. They help every individual if they are struggling in a subject. All teachers are friendly and outgoing. The students have learned to trust teachers and get some guidance from them too. Its awesome to see how dedicated the teachers at GAR are."
