While Gibson County High School is a low income, agricultural based school, it is academically inclined. There is a large variety of career based classes such as clinical internship, dual enrollment welding, coding, and marketing management. Likewise, there is a plethora of college level classes from advanced placement psychology to dual enrollment composition. Most of the teachers are passionate about their job, which makes the experience much more enjoyable.

I have been very pleased with this school district! There are two things I would change. One of them being the lunch food because you are given the same portion in high school as you were in middle school, which makes no sense. The second thing I would change would be the janitorial staff. The janitorial staff isn't bad, but the students and teachers have to complain multiple times before the bathroom stalls have toilet paper.
In my four years at Gibson County High School, I have experienced many great memories and experiences. Throughout my honors classes, I feel as if I have been prepared for very vigorous college courses and am very thankful for the teachers that put so much time and commitment into what they teach. The outside activities such as sports are always improving and winning more and more as the years go along. Gibson County High School is the best school around
