Girard City School District Reviews

Teachers, staff, & faculty are all very welcoming and form good connections with students to help them achieve academic success and college readiness. Some are even comfortable helping students with personal issues that may be affecting their academics. The food is okay; not great for people with dietary restrictions (I'm vegetarian) but there are usually alternate lunch options that are acceptable. Plenty of College Credit Plus (CCP) classes to choose from that give students extra opportunities to prepare for college and save money from taking classes! The guidance office is also a great resource for college readiness and help with the ACT, scholarships, and college applications. I just wish they were in their office more often.

My experience at Girard High School is substandard, there teachers are great and highly supportive. But teaching wise to the student are not as beneficial; to the students as it should be. What I like at Girard High School is that all the teachers and staff are really supportive and understand with the students needs. Also, how the school's environment is clean and well-maintained. I believe what needs changed is the teachers teaching standards for how they are actually teaching the students. Also, Girard High School needs to work on is helping the students prepare for after graduation and get them ready for the next steps in their lives.
Currently, the school is too highly focused on athletics, which are not going very far to further the school's status, causing issues in the other non-athletic portions. There are few academic clubs, and those that do persist are not acknowledged and have trouble with normal issues that athletic clubs do not have to worry about (ie: busing, new equipment, acknowledgement, etc.). Many of the teacher hold your hand causing you to retain no knowledge, the few that don't though truly prepare you for college. Due to the school being stuck in the old ways, we have fallen behind on advancing curriculum hurting our college readiness and creating a very low amount of college ready students. The sciences have not changed in years with few new additions or changes. We do have many college in high school classes to choose from at least.
