Garden City High School Reviews

Garden City High School has a lot to offer. Students are able to excel academically with passionate teachers and assisting resources provided including math and writing centers during the school day and extra help before and after school. While students are set up for success in the classroom, Garden City High School refuses to address issues of mental health even after a member of the student body committed suicide. The school avoids issues of mental health and fails to help suffering members of the student body. In many cases where bullying has been reported little action has been taken against it, despite the claim the school made by the school that it is anti-bullying community. Overall the teachers are very committed and the variety courses are rigorous but Garden City High School cares more about the number than they do about the student.

The Garden City High School has intensely prepared me for college with rigorous AP courses, and the help is dedicated teachers always taking time out of their day to help and guide you. At my school I have made friendships that will last a lifetime. School events are always well planned and a great time. I know the school has prepared me well for college, but I'm sad to leave it behind.
Garden City High School is the public high school of Garden City, New York. Garden City is a dominantly affluent, caucasian community. My experience has been fine, but I have given 4 stars simply because of the high quality education.
