Garden City High School is the type of school that each and every student has a different experience. Mainly it is what you make of your time there. Personally I think the academics were decent and fully prepared me for college. The teachers are more than willing to help students if they are willing to put in the work. I was an athlete during my 4 years at GCHS and experienced a great coaching staff as well as teammates, the coaching staff was there not only to teach but to prepare us young athletes for future athletic careers and also our future jobs. I enjoyed GCHS and feel as if my past teachers fully prepared me to continue my education and also a future career.

I would like to see the district budget more financial support for the music programs. The football and cheer programs are supported very much, the marching band gets no support financially. The instrument upkeep and need for more is overwhelming. The band director tries to do the best he can but there are very limited resources. The arts and music are not celebrated, encouraged or supported in the Middle school or the high school in Garden City.
Honestly, most of the teachers in my time were great, minus a few that I felt just weren't up to par. However, the school itself is gross and has all sorts of problems. The academic, could definitely be better. There are only 4 AP programs, and other Honors courses don't feel any sort of advanced at all. For extracurricular activities, there aren't that many options either.
