Gadsden High school is a great school! The teachers are great and so are the students. The school itself has gone through a lot of construction and remodeling, so its almost as if it were brand new. The only negatives would be parent involvement and the food. The school doesn't try too hard to get parents involved with what their sons and daughters are doing at school. And also the food, which for the most part, is not that good. But, of course, it's common for a public school to have this sort of food.

I like this school because it has many resources to give to students such as a therapist, information ( regarding what teenagers would normally go through ), and many opportunities for scholarships and various programs to make sure each student is successful in their education. Most teachers work as hard as you could imagine, however there are a couple issues such as corrupt teachers getting past the system with loopholes that us students just deal with and get through with it. A lot of students specifically flunk their math classes, but there are some
nice teachers that offer lots of tutoring on their own time as well.
My experience in school was amazing. I have wonderful teachers, some are better than others but all of them are good teachers and care about our education. Teachers will give their all for us to understand the subject and they will sometimes even take the time of showing us different ways to teach us the subject just for us to understand. One of the things that I would like for the school to change is the support against all sports and clubs. Some sports get more support than other and some people especially the ones from the sport or club that don't get as much support get sad about it, but other than that everything is good.
