The teachers and students at gatesville high school are what make it for me. Without the school spirit and athleticism our students have, then it wouldn’t be a fun school. The teachers are also great, they love their students and enjoy connecting with them. Their teaching styles are ones that help everyone rather than a few. Over the past few years, a school board has been elected and they have enforced strict rules on dress code and prefer traditional paper over technology. The dress code is by far the worst though. You cannot have holes in pants above the knees and shorts must be below fingertip length despite many people having long arms and cannot wear clothes such as Nike shorts.
I enjoyed many things here, the choir program, the Library. Recently we started renovations and rebuilding the school. I also enjoy the diverse personalities we have amongst the Gatesville staff. While we experience renovations and rebuilding of the school, many of the things I wish would change will be met. However, the change I want to see most in, is our library's updation.
The Gatesville Independent School District (GISD) it a good-balanced public school that offers good opportunity in career fields. The school district offers: Construction/Architecture, Agriculture (Farming), Business and Industries, Automotive Technology, Culinary Arts, and NOW introducing Medical Science and Law Enforcement. This school district is always expanding each year from an additional class period to renovating the facility to introduce more types of courses. The faculty is great, the student council is highly involved with the school as a whole to improve student life. The changes I would like to see done with the school is to enhance security and college readiness.
