I personally had a good high school experience. Gage Park wasn’t known as the best around my neighborhood but studying there gave me a different Outlook. I saw unity amongst students and staff, the small school population brings everyone together. Although Gage has had trouble finding teachers, I always see my peers helping each other and working together to get through a problem like if a teacher was there.
I have not had any problems with this school. Its not a bad school the teachers know how to teach and they are not very strict. Everyone can learn different things and there is different kind of classes for what you might be interested in. Also the teachers are helpful with any problems that you might have. There is different people that you can talk to for any problem you might have from attendance to something that might be happening at home.
