My experience at Garden City High School is amazing! Some of the things that like about my school is that the teachers are nice and helpful. Also the students are friendly. Garden City High School is a really diverse place that makes unique from other school. There are many students from different that I'm amazed by. Each us individually own an iPad that are given to us from school which makes it easy for us to learn. A changes that I would like to see in the future will be to have better lunch. Our school lunch is not that but it's just not good l.

I like our new high school, I feel it offers a safe learning environment. It is a well-designed facility and have good technology. I like the fact that every student is able to take home an ipad as part of the school work as it enhances learning and responsibility. Some of the teachers are not only knowledgeable but also caring. What I would like to see is better opportunities for students to express their ideas and opinions. We are slowly getting there but I also feel that individual input should be taken into consideration as a positive contribution.
The high school was huge. Every student received an iPad that they could do their schoolwork on, but sometimes it became a distraction for some students. The high school is split up into four different areas of learning, so depending on what you wanted to go to college for, you could sign up to be in the red, yellow, blue, or green academy (green was for freshmen only).
