    Extracurriculars: GBHS dance program is something to be admired. We offer a few different after school clubs and they're all really fun and student-led. allowing for leadership skills to be developed. Another really big activity is after school band/drumline/orchestra/colorguard, they spend a lot of time together and make good memories.

    Overall Experience: This school has many ups and downs as expected from such a large school. Educationally, there are classes that are complete jokes or treated as jokes by the teachers and it makes the whole experience worse. But there are also great classes that are fun and very educational. The after school activities are something to admire here, being a part of the dance clubs was the best decision I made. You make a lot of friends in these types of activities, many people do sports or drama and become great friends within those groups. For me, being in dance classes definitely challenged me to become not only a better dancer but to become a better person - and to become something bigger than myself. I would go to this school again if I could do it over, and I'd probably get involved in even more activities.

    Academics: The scheduling process was easy, if there were any problems all you had to do was talk to your counselor ad everything would get worked out. The teachers were very supportive with the students choices in what classes would be best for them.

    Extracurriculars: I started indoor colorguard when I was in 6th grade, and I continued to be in indoor colorguard until I graduated. My freshman year I was in the marching band. Throughout all four years of high school I was in both indoor drumline and indoor colorguard at the same time. I was highly committed to the music program at the high school. Other than being a part of the music program I was also involved in National Honor Society, Game Club, and Student Announcements. As a part of the National Honor Society I had a lot of opportunities to volunteer.
