Gloucester County Public Schools Reviews

While there is a select group of staff members that care for their students regardless of their opinions or identities, many of the staff members disregard their LGBTQ students. Not only are there high school children who act out maliciously against gay or transgender teens but the staff members and the administrators have not done their best in supporting these students who feel ostracized by their community. Furthermore, the treatment of other minority groups within the school is lackluster and their are hardly any repercussions when it comes to casual racism within our school. However, the school is not all so bad. GHS provides an array of classes for students with all different interests to take. We have an extremely successful athletics department and a dedicated ROTC program. While there are many aspects of the high school that I do not like I cannot conclusively call GHS a bad school.

Gloucester high school is a throwback to the 70's, when it was first built. The campus is outdated and the facilities are from the same time period. The academic teacher only care about getting their students to pass their SOL's. Gloucester High does have a lot of good extra classes like their arts, cosmetology, Auto technician, and culinary. Overall the school is rough, but some students can find their way.
When my family moved here after I was born from West Virginia, they did not know much about the school system here. I went to elementary school at T.C. Walker, middle school at Page (until the hurricane when I was in 6th grade), Peasley in 7th, and Page (trailers behind the high school) in 8th, and am about to graduate from Gloucester High School. My experiences here have overall been great. I took multiple Advanced Placement and Dual courses in high school that have allowed me to gain many credits for college. I know that our county does struggle with academic accreditation, but the courses that I have taken have helped me feel prepared for college. Others may say that their family did not benefit from this school system, but I feel that all of the teachers that I have had have definitely helped me academically develop. I appreciate everything that I have learned, and I would not change any of my experiences here in Gloucester county.
