As a graduate of Girard School District, I strongly recommend this parents to have their children attend this district. I felt very prepared for college following graduation and was a successful college student as a result of my high school education. The teachers put their students first and have high expectations. The student love their community and are successful following graduation. Girard is part of a tight knit community with their love for all sports and is an overall great community to become a part of. I strongly recommend this school district!

Girard School District provides excellent room for growth and improvement within our community, academics, athletics, and relationships. One of the standouts from Girard compared to others is the acts put forth from the students and staff of the school. Girard takes the extra leap to provide a safe and comforting environment both in and out of school in our small community. Personally, Girard provided great athletic programs for me, which led me to excel and improve greatly. When I suffered from an injury, almost all of the faculty was hands-on to help me improve for the better and were willing to cooperate. Girard also provides excellent academic and club programs to help each individual pursue what fits them best. At Girard High School, you are not singled into a box, you are expected and led to be the best you, you can be.
I loved Girard and the environment it created. My teachers were always so welcoming and friendly. I never had an issue with a teacher I had. I loved participating and watching all of our fun activities we did including: deck the halls, beach day, horror movie contest, and teachers vs students volleyball and basketball games. Many people give Girard School District a bad reputation because of their bad experience with it, but I can't think of a better district to raise a child and have them be in a supporting and kind place.
