    "I liked my high school experience. The really unique thing about GCMS is the small class size; I literally know every single person I went to high school with on a personal level. This type of situation is great for holding each other accountable. I feel that I really kept out of trouble in high school based solely on the fact that all my friends and teachers were right there to keep me on track. This environment helped me to stay focused on what really mattered, my studies."

    "Most of the teachers at GCMS High school are great! Almost all of them seem to have a true passion for what they do. The english teachers at GCMS are especially knowledgable. The fact that GCMS is such a small school really allowed then teachers to really get to know each and every student personally, which I feel helped me stay motivated to learn. Overall my high school experience was very high-quality."

    "The teachers are very knowledgeable and are generally friendly and open for you to get help. Granted there are some where they are never available and never seem to care for their students, but other than that they're pretty good here."

    "Most of the kids here are white, racist, and homophobic. If you're anything besides white, be prepared to be made fun of and have nobody do anything about it."

    "Sometimes it seems like teachers gang up on kids and assign homework due all on the same day, but other than that it is a pretty good curriculum. Scheduling process is super easy, and there's usually never an issue with full classrooms."
