Garden City Unified School District Reviews

The major plus is the diverse student body, full of LGBT students, immigrants, and racial minorities. The administration however, is a problem. Severe budgeting issues have made them cut several art and theater projects, and they place too much emphasis on sports over academics and mental health. Even when students do speak up the problems are often pushed to the side and not taken care of.

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.
School starts early, contrary to research. Building is ineffective. Only one exit/entrance. Do not have most qualified teacher teaching highest level of classes. Limited college prep classes.
