    "Many of these review are several - ten years old. In the past two years, both the High School and the Middle School have reflected on past practices and begun a focus of improvement. The teachers are caring and the students are the focus. With any school, the more the student and / or parent is involved does influence the educational experience, Garden Spot is now focused on ALL students, making their success the priority."

    "The high school has the most uncaring teachers I have ever met. They are there only for a paycheck. What happened to the teachers that actually enjoyed teaching they aren't at Garden Spot that's for sure. When you have meetings with them they seat themselves in front of a laptop and look over the top of it at you instead of really interacting with you. What's that tell you exactly what it tells the students they don't care."

    "I agree with most comments. If a student is a good student and self motivated, it is a great school. But, if they have any problems with classes, forget about the help. There is not willingness from most teachers to help those who don't really care about being there. It is the teachers responsibility to help motivate and be positive with the student. Most are not like that unless the student is a 'good' student. I have one good student and the other three struggled. No concern from the teacher or guidance counselors. Just push them through or send them to Washington Education Center, this is their motto."

    "As alumni and parents of alumni, I think that GS tends to let you get what you put into it. Parents who are at the school, involved and participating will have students with a better HS experience. There are good teachers and not so good, just as there are good parents and then there are those who want the school to do all the work for them. Both of our students had good experiences. Our daughter is now an honors student at a state college. While no school is perfect, GS is better than many and I am glad my students had the opportunity to attend here."
