Grove City Area School District Reviews

I liked the class size of Grove City high school. There are approximately 160 students. I thought most of the teachers were very knowledgeable on their subjects. A few things that would improve this school would be to add more AP classes. Taking AP classes gives students the opportunity to take college level courses which will help by either taking the AP test and getting college credit or give them a good background on the course when they go to college. I would also like to see the school have more job fairs. This would give students an idea of the field of study they would like to pursue. Overall, Grove City is a good school, but could use a few improvements.

Grove City High School was a great experience! They have a lot of clubs for students interested in all different things from Saturday Science club to Band to Football and Pep club. At GCHS, I always felt safe. The school also promotes and helps plan each student for college, tech school, or the workforce.
Overall, I have had a decent experience at this school, but it lacks the amount of challenging classes (AP) and is not big on school involvement. I wish that my high school experience would have included more school spirit and fun assemblies instead of just worrying about performing on tests. On the bright side, I have had some great teachers and have made some really great friends throughout my high school years.
