My experience at this school has been pretty good. I'm not going to say great because I had been home schooled up until 10th grade and when I joined the public school system, it was most definitely a shock. The grading was different, the pace was much quicker, and the hours were longer. I think if it would have been any other school surrounding this area, I would go straight back to being homeschooled. But because this school is rated #1 in the state, I stayed because I believed it really was a great school and that I was getting an excellent education by being pushed to try our hardest. The environment is very comfortable, just because there are only 200 kids K-12, 80 kids in the whole High School, and about 24 kids in my class! Everybody knows everybody and so we are all pretty tight and can have deeper relationships than if it was a bigger school and I think that is what makes this school unique. I would choose this school again because of the excellent teachers. I think that the teachers really put their heart and soul into helping us succeed and they are genuine. Some of my favorite experiences have to be the dances, just because of the small amount of people that show up! We have a blast and can make the most of any gathering...even if it is composed of 30 people. Some other memorable experiences include just having great friendships within the school. There is very little bullying because we all know each other so well. I really do appreciate this school and the hard work that is put in to making us thrive.

Gardiner High is credited with the most successful academic program in Montana. Right at the North Entrance of Yellowstone National Park, growing up in Gardiner is a one of a kind experience, especially considering the town's diminutive size of about 800 residents. Because the average class size is around twenty students, each student has the opportunity to receive one on one instruction from the teachers and to develop a personal relationship with them. Overall, this school does the best it can with what it has in terms of numbers: of students and money. Gardiner also has a rather disappointing but understandable lack of diversity among its students, also contributing a rather narrow range of choice as far as classes and extracurricular activities. Overall, Gardiner is a school to be proud of in a myriad of respects, and its successes certainly outweigh its drawbacks.
The after school activities at the Gardiner School are heavily encouraged and they are a pretty big deal to the community. Participating in volleyball, basketball, Speech & Drama, Golf, and Cross Country are very popular. The school is very proud of their extracurricular activities and I can see why. The volleyball team has made it to state multiple times and so have other activities. The community is very, very supportive. They are always at games or meets, cheering on the kids participating. The administration support is very big too. Most often, you will find teachers attending games to watch their students pour their heart into the participation. This contributes to why the teachers and students have such a great bond.
