Garaway is a very open environment and the community makes it 10x better! The teachers, staff, and administrators develop close relationships with the students. Not to mention that the atmosphere is very positive and welcoming to any and all people.

I think that it was overall a great time. I think that this school is very sheltered because it is in the middle of a huge Amish community. A lot of the students there are from the Amish background, or have family members who are. I think that this has hindered the knowledge of world, and also just the ability to have a world view. Because when you are not surrounded by diversity, you almost forget that it is there. There needs to be more emphasis on different perspectives. I also think that there are many college prep classes that you can take. As a high school senior i felt very prepared to go to the college level and learn.
What I like about Garaway is the teachers and the marching band. The teachers are helpful and are friendly. The marching band is very talented and puts on a good halftime show. What I would like to change would be the students, we are mean to each other and make fun of each other when our backs are turned. It would be better if we could all get along and bond as a whole school.
