Gallup high is a school with great potential due to its staff and administrators. Sometimes it does become bias towards specific activities that may bring in more money. The best part about Gallup high are the teachers and counseling services. On the other end there is a high teacher turn over rate, and turnover rate in the administration (not the principal), and it mostly seems from dissatisfaction, or maybe not a good hiring as they may not fit with the diverse crowd at the school.

My experience at Gallup High was great. I say my experience at Gallup was great because I knew all my classmates, I made a lot of new friends and I joined many fun activities. During my time at Gallup High, I loved basketball season. I enjoyed seeing the community coming together to cheer on the basketball team. One thing that would make Gallup High excellent is adding a well rounded curriculum such as geography, current events. life fitness and nutrition, child development and more.
My personal experience at Gallup High wasn’t all that great. There were some teachers that made it worth coming to school and others made it hard. The kids there were nice, but they also lacked the knowledge of the whole “high school” experience. As for the atmosphere of the school, it was calming and welcoming. The sports that I participated in were very exciting. Especially the girls basketball team. I made friends through the sports that I played and I can say that we have a strong bond. Overall my experience was fun while it lasted, but would I ever go back? That would have to be a hard no because of the hardships I went through to finish out me years.
