Gadsden City schools have provided me with a great education. I really enjoyed all my years from Kindergarten all the way to my senior year. I feel very prepared to move in to college and know that academically I am prepared for success.
The opportunities at Gadsden City are abundant, the schools offer many different paths academically. If AP and dual enrollment is of interest to the student, it is one of the top programs at Gadsden City High School.
While our sports teams struggle in 7a, we know we are competing with the best teams in the state in all sports and take the challenge head on. I really will miss my school and the time I was able to spend there.

My experience with Gadsden City Schools was amazing! I transferred over to Gadsden City High School after being in a Private school and it was a complete change of atmosphere. The teachers are always there for you to help or for advice. I joined the Titan Band and instantly felt welcomed.
I transferred to Gadsden City High School my junior year to excell with my academics. The teachers at this school have made a huge impact on my life and have provided me with information that I will need through not only college, but life itself. I personally feel college ready because of the school I am attending. My parents were truly amazed by the attention and help the teachers, counselors, etc give the students even after school hours. I am truly proud to call myself a Gadsden City Titan!!!
