    "I can't speak for every girl in the student body, but a well-adjusted, hardworking person can thrive at this school. I don't regret making the decision to attend instead of a public school or Baylor, because GPS has given me both the academic background to go everywhere I want and the confidence to survive in "the real world." Recently, they released a video about single-sex education. Simultaneously I'm thankful for my single-sex education because being around boys in middle school would have honestly been "hell on earth" as some of my colleagues so elegantly wrote, but there are social skills that I also still need. The experience you're going to have depends on how willing you are to work in what you love, whether that's your classes or the arts or a sport, because it is a competitive school and your peers will help push you towards the best you can be. For a girl looking for that sort of environment along with being willing to speak out for herself, GPS is probably a good choice for her."

    "As a student on a high academic track, I have probably some of the best teachers in the school. Some of them may not be exactly traditional but more often than not they leave you above and beyond "prepared," but this isn't to say that every teacher you encounter is this way. Compared to other schools, the teaching is much more individualized, but if a student is going to complain as opposed to reaching out for help, there's not much a teacher can do."

    "I enjoyed my tenure at GPS, up until this year, my final year. The pettiness that is shown by faculty is absurd. Many of the teachers act like teenage girls themselves. I don't feel like the teachers now truly care, with the exception of a select few. This school is moving in the wrong direction, about 30% of the staff didn't return from last year. Many of those teachers were kind, caring, and concerned about our whole rather than just our grades. I'm disappointed to see my school take a turn for the worst. Much of what is being done/ said by the administration is for publicity. Our headmaster doesn't seem genuine at all. She calls us her "girls" but I have yet to see her at any of our events without being glued to her phone (this happens during senior speeches as well). GPS has changed so much. I see so many fellow classmates struggling with anxiety and depression and nothing being done to address it here. Instead our teachers are throwing a fit about the type of material our sweatshirt is made of. Something has got to change, we have voiced our opinions and we're told to shut up usually. Discouraging."

    "If you want to have a happy, healthy high school career, go elsewhere."

    "I love the traditions here but sometimes this school seems to stray from being a school and more of a presence in the community. We have been trying to fix the community when the internal school community is filled to the brim with anxiety, depression and a sense of competition between every student."
