Gadsden City High School is a great public school to get an education. The staff is great and very stick with rules. It's a big school, two floors and there is a freshman hallway that way there classes are close. My experience from freshman till now, I only got lost once and that was the first day of school. Ever since I memorized how to get from one to another class. This school has different talent and electives with extra curricular activities. The only electives I've taken are career prep, Spanish 1, Jrotc, family and consumer science, drivers education, health, clinical, clinic internship, ACT prep, band, and concert band. There are many more classes that I haven't taken but are very interesting.

The people are so kind. The teachers genuinely care about their students. The faculty are amazing. Academics are top notch. And there are tons of extracurriculars to choose from! You'll never be bored here at gcity
My experience has been great at Gadsden City High School. Since the 9th grade, I have been extremely proud to call myself a Titan. Many of the teachers go above and beyond to make sure that you are successful in not only academics, but when you leave and start a career, and I think that is what makes GCHS unique. However, there can be those teachers who don't care, as long as they get their job done and get paid for their part. If I could do high school all over again, I would still pick Gadsden City High School because the teachers and faculty go that extra mile, if you're also willing to do so, to make sure you have an incredible experience as well as incredible knowledge. After all, its great to be a Gadsden Titan!
