    "I attended and graduated from this program. I entered a year late but was able to get my AS a semester after graduatin. Academically, this school is intense and obviously top-notch. I have to award this school for how far I've been able to go with my education. Don't discount the toll it can take on the mind, though. Support is essential, and the school cannot effort enough qualified counselors. Before enrolling, get your family on board with the unbeatable stress it can cause. It is not easy. It makes you break down and cry more often than you ever will after. You won't sleep, eat enough or get enough exercise. You will most likely kiss straight As goodbye and if your parents don't understand the rigorous curriculum it will royally suck. The anxiety and pressure can very easily get out of control. I don't know if it is worth it at age 21, but if you want excellent education, this is your only choice in the Gilroy area. Just please don't ignore your health. It is critical to learn how to deal with things at this age and this school doesn't have a course in teaching you how to handle the unending anxiety or anything useful for emotional wellbeing."

    "GECA is by far the best high school in the area. GECA offers a family based environment where every student knows everybody, and every student puts forward the effort to learn. Teachers understand each student, and thanks to small class sized, know every student's needs. GECA holds the rank of 6th best school in California, and holds a solid 926 API score. Statistics don't lie. Unless you hate learning, this is the best school for anyone that can commute to it."

    "This is a challenging school but it beats the average high school experience. students get to have their classes on the beautiful Gavilan Campus that has them connected to nature. the teachers are all friendly and want all the students to succeed. friends are made ther much easier than at a regular high school and one can always express thmselves as they wish. all of that and by the time they graduate from high school they will also have achieved either an A.A. degree or an A.S. degree. saving them ( and parents from having to pay) two whole years of college! great school."
