    "Garland High School is a great, diverse high school with so much tradition and great programs. The IB program was filled with top teachers and insightful knowledge!"

    "I love the tradition that this school has and there are some teachers who are great. I've been taking mostly AP and honor classes in the 4 years I've attended. My friends who take IB claim it is mediocre but super competitive. Many clubs to join and extracurricular classes. I've been in one regular class and it was not the best learning experience. The new restrooms that were updated are nice, way overdue though. As of right now the Fine Arts building is still under-construction and I'm sure that it'll turn out okay by the looks of the restroom. There is a safety issue concerning the amount of doors all over the building, hopefully they do whatever they need to add security to the school. The food is absolutely disgusting! They don't even release the full nutrition labels that the FDA usually requires on your standard package of food, they only describe the possible allergens in the food and it's very hard to tell what exactly the food is made out of."

    "Garland High School preserves its traditions and gives students an identity here on campus. Many teachers in the IB program are intelligent individuals who genuinely care about the well-being of students, and they are always ready to help any child in any way possible. However, because the IB program has so much of the school's focus, the AP program at GHS--in my opinion--is severely lacking in comparison to other schools. In addition, another criticism to the school would be its redundancy and lack of creativity every year. Although many of the school's assemblies, theme weeks, and teacher-student activities are fun, the same events tend to repeat every year. The school lacks originality and a creative environment, causing students to fall into too much of a rut of routine and to feel like each school year is the same."

    "Freshman as of now. I absolutely love this school. Huge and sprawling with a lot of space and room. We re over 100 years old but with that age comes tradition. Homecoming, Senior Chant, Pep rallies, PinkOut...This school has spirit like no other. Black and gold all the way! The academics are challenging the higher up you go, and with our school boasting the only IB program in the district, you can go as tough as you like. The students are smart. The school is amazing, and EVERYONE is friendly. Gig em owls!!!!"

    "Its a very diverse school full of some great people and some not great people (as to be expected), however the IB Program is something to look forward to and the amount of community is great."
