Gibson County Special School District Reviews

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.

I enjoyed the learning experience to prepare for college. I enjoyed the medical classes which prepared me for my journey into the medical field of Radiography. The teachers had the students interested at heart. Participating in the band program taught me self-discipline but also how to work together as a team. During my senior year, I took clinical classes where I had the opportunity to observe at two local clinics. I have also job shadowed at a local hospital and witness x-rays, ultrasounds and cat scans taken on patients. These experiences helped me to decide which area of the medical field I would like to pursue.
Great school with wonderful caring teachers! I have grown so much as a person at this school. This school is also located in a small quaint community where everybody knows your name.
