    "My son transferred to Gila Ridge High School from another local school his junior year and had incredible success! I only wish we had started him at GR his freshman year. His teachers were above average, and he easily made friends. He was able to participate in dual enrollment at GR and AWC his senior year, completing a semester of college and graduating from high school. The teachers were accessible and responsive and the staff was always polite and helpful. Excellent school!"

    "this school was enjoyable with the teachers for the most part some teachers need to be removed from district for screaming and abusing athouraty. Also the staff canott keep there records straight to save there lifes. I had to graduate early and all i herd from staff mebers were that i couldnt do it but what do ya know i have a early graduate diploma. Also one a note the phycoliogist thier don't really know much i got occused of beating up a girl that i recently broke up with. when in fact i havent seen her face to face in almost 6 months. They threatened to call police so i decided to take problems into own hands and had the sherrifs help me out. Girls mother was recently arested for domestic violence. Staff mebers then changed my whole scedual for no reason. If your child is 15 or 16 and seeing gila ridge cover his eyes because he or she will make the biggest mistake going there the only people that care are the teachers i have had some great ones and when i walked the line i relized ill miss the teachers so i belive for the most part teachers were the best you can get here in town"

    "I was thoroughly disappointed as I watched two of my children attend this school. I'm a VErY involved parent, so I volunteer and remain nearby to be easily accessible if the need arises. The counselors seemed to not care on sharing information (SAT/ACT dates, Scholar, Dual Enr avail,), so DO YOUR OWN HMWRK. Nonchalant sports program, The principle showed little involvement in the school, situations, or w/the kids, Too many Chiefs running around like chickens with their heads off accomplishing nothing. SAD. Too many hoops for teachers to get their job done, & poor teachers stick around because no one has time for the paperwork. Great neighborhood though (K1-College Degree all on the same road -mile)"

    "We moved from Orange County, CA & were concerned about the quality of the high school's in Yuma. The academics is a little behind CA, but regardless, GRHS is a wonderful school. Our concerns in any school are academics, activities, opportunities... GRHS is, to us, an excellent environment for our child. The teachers thus far are above average; it is apparent the teachers care about the student's education and welfare. Our child is excelling. We have no doubt she will be able to perform well in OC school when we return to CA. Thank you to the teachers and staff of this well rounded school."

    "I have been pleased with this school. It is a very nice. Registration was easy and quick. I can talk to the teachers without a problem.The only problem I found was the theft issue. My daughters friend had her wallet stolen out of her back pack and nothing was done about it. So I understand what the person below felt with the theft issue. I know it happens at all schools but I would've expected GR to be a step up from that."
