    Overall Experience: Although Gilbert High has very high attendance, I feel like most people know each other and support each other. I would like to see the student sections in sports be better but overall I think Gilbert is great. I know many people that go to schools nearby that say they wish they went to Gilbert or how bad their school is. I also know people who have transferred to a different school and wish they never did because Gilbert was better than their new school.

    Teachers: The majority of the teachers are very nice and full of knowledge. I wish they would incorporate more real life situations, as this is the best way I personally learn and it interests me more than the teachers just teaching the lesson. I feel like it is more interesting and students can actually see how they can apply the lessons they learn in life. A majority of the time, I learn more from the teachers' personal stories that I can use in my real life and help make me a better person rather than the lesson we learn that day.
