Girard School District Reviews
Rating 4.19 out of 5 32 reviews
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.
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.
This school has some pretty great teachers, it lacks in the guidance office though. Definitely need more structure there. Care a lot about sports needs to be more evened with academics.
It’s a good school, but they don’t help prepare for real life. The new principal treats the students like they are 5 years old. They need to be given some type of independents.
The school has a great educational program and the safety policies that the school has is absolutely amazing and I always feel safe at this school, but the extra curricular activities don't exactly offer much to the students.
My experience with the Girard School District has been exceptionally good. Over my years at Girard, I've found the education and opportunities offered by the school district to be sufficient in providing the students with almost any advantage they could wish for. I also feel that the faculty and staff are very down to earth and easy to connect to, being not only an instructor, but also a student's friend and ally. The many courses offered, in addition to the priority of the student's needs and comfort, that the school shows makes this school into what I believe to be a great school that any student should desire.
The teachers from the Girard School District made us feel like every single student was important and they always encouraged us to do our best. Many teachers that I've had, I've not only learned so much from, but I felt very connected to and eager to see them. Many educators had different styles of teaching and I enjoyed the variety. There were a lot of clubs, extracurricular activities, sports, and other ways to get involved and feel included. Not only did they provide important material and many electives to choose from, but they offered career-focused programs at Erie County Technical School. They also offered work-cooperation. I have not only gained so much knowledge, but I have met some lifelong friends and created some wonderful memories. I wouldn't be the perseverant and successful person I am today if I didn't get my education from the Girard School District.
Girard School District can be considered your typical, everyday, suburban school district, but deep down, it is much more than that. Most students will grow up with their peers, as there is only one elementary school, middle school, and high school in the district. This truly helps bring students together as one, which then leads to adequate cooperation skills. Without a doubt, there are defiant students in each building. Those who tend to act up or out are punished a fraction of the time, but some go without. The safety of the high school is moderate, as there is a resident student resource officer who gets the job done. The officer travels back and forth throughout all school buildings, which really ups the safety of the district. I feel fairly safe, but there are rare situations where I am uncomfortable. Without a doubt, the situation will most likely be resolved in a timely fashion. Teachers are extremely caring, dedicated professionals who want to watch their students succeed.
As someone who was a student, it was not the worse place to be, but it could have been better. I have poor to neutral feelings about Girard in general. I will say this though, I enjoyed my teachers most of all.
Girard is a small town. I went to school here from Kindergarten and graduated . I love Girard . The teachers and education provided were phenomenal . The school is surrounded by many people who want to see you succeed . The staff and faculty push you to be your best and help you grow as an individual .
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 is dedicated to supporting their students and providing a great learning experience for student
The average high school experience. Lack of support for the music department. Can’t afford to hire the appropriate amount of teachers.
I would like to have less tests and homework and focus more on the learning aspect of school. Besides that GHS is a pretty okay school.
I love Girard. At Girard you are assured a great education and the teachers are willing to work with you in order to guarantee success. I wouldn't want to go to any other high school. At Girard I feel safe, I get a great education, and we are a friendly school.
Girard is a good school filled with good teachers. They are all willing to help you when you need it. Would make some classes harder than they are
While attending Girard High School, I have been guided and shown various paths in order to become successful in my future. Not only are the teachers and other faculty members there to educate the students, they support students on a personal matter. Whether it be talking about current situations at home, bullying or even someone to simply talk with, they always made the students feel welcome with open doors.
