The best thing about going here would be homecoming, the whole community gets together and celebrates, which is also connected with a football game, which is the most popular sport we have. Things I would like to see change would be letting everyone have an opportunity instead of choosing select people for certain things, punishment against bullying needs to be more severe than a lunch detention, and we all need to be treated equally instead of singled out.

Overall, Gillespie Community Unit School District No. 7 is a good school. The facility works hard to prepare the students for their futures and help them get to where they want to be. One of my favorite parts of Gillespie is the dual credit classes. Students are offered the opportunity to take classes that are not only fulfilling their graduation requirements, but are also getting them college credits. These courses allow the students at GHS to get a taste of college courses and to save the students money. If there was one improvement I could offer, I would like there to be more clubs to get involved in. Although there is sports at GHS, there seems to be a lack of opportunities to get involved in clubs.
I have been part of GCUSD7 since kindergarten. My graduating class had 86 students. Everybody knew everybody, and everybody's business. There was a lot of drama, and I'm happy to be away from there area, but I wouldn't trade going to that school for anything. It was a great experience to make me how I am today, and it will forever hold a place in my heart.
