Gulfport School District Reviews

The mission of the Gulfport School district is to inspire each student to become a problem solver, life long learner, and a productive member of society. I can say with full confidence that the school district embodies and accomplishes every aspect of that mission statement. It is truly a wonderful school district, and I would not trade my experience for the world. It is something like none other in their facilities, classes, and college preparedness. They are number one in everything they do, and there is truly a place for everyone here!

I like that the Gulfport School District seems to be more professional than the other school districts in the area. The large area that the district covers is incredible and that allows for a large amount of diverse students to learn from each other. As for the academics, the services were very good, but my only complaint is that they do not seem to ready the students for life outside of school. It is even more noticeable because in its mission statement it states that its goal is to prepare students to be a "productive member of society." Yet overall, the Gulfport school district is a very good school district.
I am from a military family and moved to Gulfport in 7th grade. I toured the schools in the area because I had already taken the 7th-grade math class here. Other schools told me I would just have to retake the class, but Gulfport was willing to work with me. I am now entering junior year at Gulfport High, and I love GHS. The high school offers almost 20 AP classes, several honors classes, dual credit classes, and amazing ACT prep. Most of the teachers are amazing and really love their subjects, but there are a few who don't really know what they are teaching. Sometimes the guidance/administrators are difficult to get a hold of, especially in person, but if you keep trying, you'll eventually get to them. The school district is probably the best one in the area in terms of achieving, with top ACT scores in the state and several Eminent Scholars and National Merit Semifinalists each year.
