Honestly, my high school experience could have went a lot better. If I were more involved in sports, clubs, activities, and if I put myself out there more and was more social, then I think I would have had a great time. I didn't participate because I was too focused on maintaining straight A's, and it has taken me four years to realize that grades aren't everything. I realized that although grades are important, taking a step back and getting a breath of fresh air is just as important. I did, however, attend a few of the football games, and I thought they were really exciting. Being a part of the crowd and rooting for our football team was so fun! Also watching the cheerleaders and dance team perform was a good time. I think the high level of diversity makes the school unique because no matter which part of the school you are looking at, you will meet people from all types of heritages. I would choose this school again if I could do it all over because it is an excellent school with appropriate teachers and a variety of activities to choose from.

A tough highschool that pushes you to your limit, but prepares you for the real world. Awesome teachers, and great college counselors and regular counselors to help students ready for college. Great diversity and the school is very spirited!

During my four years at GHCHS, I have only had one horrible teacher. She was the worst teacher I have ever had for my ninth grade English class. She was rude and disrespectful and only helped you when she felt like it. In spite of her, all of my other teachers are wonderful. Not only do they display an extensive knowledge on the subject they teach, but they also teach it in a way that engages the students and helps us learn easily. Even if we struggle, he/she will go over it step by step until we do understand it. My favorite teachers, personally, are currently during my senior year! They are all very kind and helpful and I feel like they genuinely care about me and my performance in school.
