As a student who has gone to Gilbert Community School's all of their life, I have learned a lot about Gilbert. It is definitely a great district where teachers become some of your best friends. I have never had a teacher who I would describe as rude, mean, or even selfish. The education I received from this school has helped me as I am continuing my education. One thing I wish Gilbert did was to be more open. Some of the facility and students do have old views relating to sexuality and overall haw you should act (Name brand clothes, look attractive). This isn't something that Gibert can actually change.

Overall, I have had a great experience attending the Gilbert School District. I have made many friends and participated in many extra circulars. I think the community does a great job on balancing the importance of school along with sports. They emphasize on both the fine arts and athletics and have a great booster club. Some of the people in the school district are judgmental, however you're going to find that with every school.
This is a small school in the very center of Iowa. They have pretty good academics, great sports programs, and quite a few options for courses for the size of the school. Many teachers try their best to get the students involved and interested in their subjects, as well as experimenting with different ways of teaching. However, this school has little to no diversity, the student culture involves a lot of drama and division, and they have limited options for courses (such as the only language available was Spanish). I really enjoyed taking classes here, but the social aspect of the school made it less enjoyable.
