Garretson High School Reviews

My overall experience at this school has been pretty great! I would have to say one unique thing about my school is that everyone gets along and there is barely any drama. This makes school and our events more fun because there aren't any rifts between any of us. If I had a chance to start over here, I would and I would even send my kids here because it is a great school and community to live in.
Review Garretson High School
My experience at school has being a huge process of growing up. You get taught the major moral points involving responsibilities and character. I've enjoyed spending time with my teachers, participating in our school choir, our band program, and many other activities. At our school, not only are you expanding your knowledge, but you are growing friendships.
You are given enough time after school hours to take part in many extracurricular activities. Although our school is very small compared to others around the country, we have a good variety of options. We mainly focus on the athletics, but we also have a strong support towards the choir and band. Other activities to take part in include our FFA team, oral interpretation group, journalism, and yearbook.
