    "The students are very nice and accepting. There is off-campus privileges and off-periods where you can study or leave school. The teachers are great and there is a wide variety of college classes as well as AP classes."

    "George Washington High School always offers a thriving advanced pathway for its students. However, some of the "lower level" classes have weaker teachers. The bathrooms are also in need of my attention along with the school in general-janitors usually don't stay at GWHS long due to how dirty it is. The food is eh and could definitely improve but makes accommodations for the Muslims that are present at the school. Overall, the school excels at what it does and does so with a diverse group of teenagers."

    "The study body is rampant with a click-based mentality. While the administration is obsessed over the sports program. Principal George Aluembacher tends to run the school like a monarchy with little room for divergence as shown by the Katelyn Cambell scandal a mere few years ago. The counselors however are wonderful and really go above and beyond to help out every student. Go Mrs. Eller!!!!"
