I rate Gardner Edgerton High School four stars because I have had a successful time there. The staff at GEHS is very involved and have a genuine care for each and every one of their students. It is easy to learn from teachers who actually care! These teachers are extremely friendly and are always open to help out in any way possible. Also, there is a phenomenal weight room that is very effective. We also got new athletic coaches and they are very responsible. They make sure that the weight lifters are doing every lift with the right technique. Since the new coach arrivals, there have been less injuries. The students of Gardner Edgerton High School are lucky to attend this school because it is a school of integrity and community service. Most students have the motivation to make the world a better place while improving themselves in the process. Gardner Edgerton High School is a very good school to attend! I cannot wait to finish my senior year there.

I have really enjoyed my experiences with Gardner-Edgerton High School. The reason behind that is the quality of the teaching staff. The teachers ensure that every student is accommodated for in their four years. I have not noticed too much of a bullying problem in Gardner-Edgerton, although there are some drugs, which in the modern American high school is expected. I have met several people who I have grown close with, and have made many memories in football stands and classrooms. I will not walk away from my high-school thinking that these were my greatest years, but it most certainly prepared me for my future in a memorable way.
Gardner Edgerton High School is a perfect balance between crowded inner city high schools and smaller rural high schools. Although it is getting large population wise, the facility and teachers have adapted quite well and continue to produce talented students into the workforce or college. Incidents are far and few, and has a good amount of successful programs, sports, and clubs. Most of the administrative staff is quite well liked by the student population, as they serve to their best ability. Quite generally, the high school and the district as a whole really does accompany Gardner and Edgerton families and town atmospheres. I would not have wanted to go anywhere else to get my diploma.
