    "Great school with medical, law, sports fitness, engineering, Geico, and culinary Academies. My 3rd child is currently enrolled. My 2 previous children received scholarships to college because of the good education."

    "This school is the worst school you could ever go to. The teachers are very disrespectful and the students think they are better than everyone else. There is a lot of bullying going on and the staff does not care at all! If you are a parent and you're thinking about sending your daughter here, DO NOT DO IT! I'm a student here so that should tell you something."

    "I hated this school. The kids were mean, a lot of them were spoiled rich kids or some that had nothing acted like they had something. I was bullied because wasn't in the cliques, I wasn't known because my parents weren't snobs participating in the school activities, and the teachers didn't seem to care!! They don't even help the students who are struggling out, they favor those who are academically doing really well without any help and have money. Plus the guidance counselors seemed to never be their, answer their emails, in the end they are unprofessional and don't help u. If I have kids I'm never sending them to this school. A school is supposed to feel welcoming and give enjoyment to kids to learn and lift one another up! Not destroy self esteem. Don't bring ur child to this school lakeland high is better"

    "We moved here from out of town and it was a task to register my daughter for school at GJHS. The people who work in the guidance office are very rude and condescending. My childs teachers are on their phones texting and facebooking instead of teaching! No wonder the testing scores have fallen at GJHS in the last several years!! Getting a phone call back from higher up staff is a big task! They do not return phone calls or emails at a timely manner which is very unprofessional. My child will not be returning to GJHS next year!"

    "Many label this school as the "rich" or "wealthy" school. Well I assure you, my family was neither of those. I attended and graduated from GJHS with high honors, with a full scholarship to any college in FL. The teachers and staff are wonderful. Like any school, you do have problems, but they are resolved to the best of the staff's abilities, and the really do care about each student as an individual. Don't set expectations for others that you wouldn't be willing to meet yourself. GJHS was a wonderful school, and I hope to move back to the area and have my own children graduate from here. Go Eagles!"
