Coming to Garden Spot SHS from Coatesville Area HS, this school has an out of this world curriculum with amazing teachers and is very focused on having kids be ready and prepared for college. The teachers are always willing to work with the students whenever necessary or able. Although, Garden Spot SHS could definitely work on handling problems between students better, issues on bullying, and monitoring students at this school due to involvement of outside actions and bringing it into the school environment.

I really like how the teachers are so caring and are always looking out for the students. When help is needed, teachers are always there. All the faculty make time for their students and it's amazing. When teachers get the chance, they try to get one on one time with their students to make sure they understand everything that is being discussed in class.
The students at GSHS are very caring and nice. When someone is in need, they make sure they are there to help that student.
I feel as if Garden Spot High School is a good school filled with many diverse students and an even more diverse academic level. While many people may not find full interests in the academic portions of the district, they may find many other fields of interest with extra curricular activities.
