    "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!"

    "If the county cut budgets then where did the new IPAD for everyone and new mascot come from?"

    "I worked at GJ for almost ten years. Yes, there are problems, but it was the best teaching experience I have had. The kids are just kids and the teachers I knew cared. The budget cuts come from the county. Don't blame the teachers. My children will go to GJ."

    "I absolutely agree with the last post. It's a shame that they decide to do budget cuts on the important things that the students need."
