My overall experience at Gilbert High School has been fantastic. I have made numerous of friends throughout my four years that I know I will be friends with forever. The students, teachers, and administration are the best in the district. I have good relationships with a handful of teachers and I am thankful to have them help prepare me for my future. Everyone in the school cares about each individual and their success as a high school student. Sports games such as football, volleyball, and basketball are my favorite part of Gilbert High School. Every game our student section is filled from the bottom of the bleachers to the top. No matter if we win or lose their are always students supporting our athletes. Our clubs such as National Honors society, Tiger Crew and Student Council are amazing and play important roles on campus. I am a member of National Honors Society and Tiger Crew and I love every second of it. I help tutor kids during advisory and lunch periods and participate in numerous of community service opportunities. In Tiger Crew I help out new students on campus by giving tours, taking them to their classes, eating lunch with them, and making new friendships. Even though I'm not on student council I know all of the hard work that they put into our school. They make spirit weeks, decorate and plan all of our school dances, create pep unforgettable pep assemblies. This shows that the students play a big role at Gilbert High School and that is what I enjoy most!

I am a senior in Gilbert High School since my sophomore year. I have had a great experience with most of my teachers. They are knowledgeable in their subject area and even in other subjects. I have not had a bad experience with any of the students and most seem accepting of all differences. The facility is clean and organized. The staff is friendly and helpful. There are also many clubs, sports, and other activities where anyone can fit in. In academics I believe that the school succeeds and goes beyond the expectations. Gilbert High School is a well-rounded school and I am glad I will be graduating from from this high school in May of 2017!

Gilbert Highs School has a wide variety of extracurricular opportunities. Many diverse extracurricular activities are provided so it is possible for any student to find something they are interested in. Some clubs require daily commitment and others require a once a week commitment so the students can choose the activity or club that suits their needs best. All sports at Gilbert High are well managed and have good reputations (other than the football team). The goon squad is an important club at Gilbert High because it is the backbone to school spirit. So many students are given opportunities to get involved at Gilbert and have fun opportunities within the school!
