Garden Plain has given each of their students many great opportunities to learn, try new things, personally grow, and prepare for the next phase of life. The teachers, paras, administration, and other support staff have all made a point to be "the one". From the staff who check-in on the personal lives of us, to the ones we can count on to always encourage us, the staff at Garden Plain High School has made a memorable and positive impact on my life. I'm confident in saying that without the opportunities the staff at Garden Plain has poured to all students, I would not have the personal motivation and strive for excellence that I do now.

I came into Garden Plain knowing absolutely nobody. I was terrified coming into a school where I knew nobody, little did I know picking Garden Plain would be one of the best decisions of my life. I was automatically excepted by everybody, I never felt judged. The teachers were so welcoming and so open to helping me. Garden Plain has one of the best athletic department as well, the coaches all know what they are doing and they will do anything to help you achieve success.
I like that Garden Plain is a small enough school that every one knows one another so even as a quiet person, I can hold a conversation with anyone in my school.
I do not enjoy the food there but this is not the cooks fault, it is due to the state and local school boards.
