Gardner-South Wilmington Township High School Reviews

I had a positive experience throughout high school, both academically and through sports. The school is small so the teacher to student ratio is low. The teachers are helpful and are easy to talk to if needed. I wish the school had more academic opportunities like high honor classes instead of the few that are offered. Overall, the environment of the school is positive. The sports teams tend to be successful and the coaches are helpful in making the sports programs more successful.

Gardner-South Wilmington is a very small school that works with what it has. Because of the size, there are not as many opportunities that students have at other schools. The small-town institution is old and there are renovations happening. There is not a lot of money here so they do their best with their lack of resources. The teachers are decent and it is a safe place for students.
The administration and teachers at this school take their job to heart and truly care about every student that steps foot into the school. The teachers fight to give their students the best education available. We do not have the newest computers or the best looking text books, but this does not mean we don't do our best and use what we have to its fullest. On top of having a good school staff, the surrounding community is the best of the best. The bleachers are never empty during a sporting event, play, or academic award night. Gardner South Wilmington High School has given me a great high school experience by giving me a good education, friends, and a sense of community.
