    Overall Experience: My experience in GHCHS was great! I loved it! Many great people amd

    Teachers! I just really hate the Dress Code, they are too strict and overexaggerated with that.

    Overall Experience: The education received that this school is very valuable. Most of the teachers are very good but the administration cares very little about the students. The biggest focus of the school is its appearance. The educational experience is very good but the rest of the aspects of the school need work. I would choose this school again if I had to do it over again.

    Overall Experience: I have never seen an instance of bullying or any sort of cliques. The students all welcome other students and are mostly generally nice. The teachers are also nice and have a great attitude when it comes to the students. There may be a lot of homework, but it gets you ready for college.

This school offers many opportunities for the student body to be active and participating in school wide events. I would say that this school is unique because it gives the ability to students to voice their opinion on their education.
