The only reason I wouldn't choose this school over again is because high school is done and over with! I always want to move up. Other than that, this school made my attendance worth it. There was always something cool going on, everyone was accepting.

I think this may be the best high school to attend in Gainesville, FL. If i had a chance to do it again, I'd go to GHS again.

My sports career in football didnt go as i planned it would, but the family i made during all four years made every day worth while. I love those guys to death and i wouldn't trade them for any other team.
