I've attended Gautier High since my freshman year. They school spirit is very contagious. We are a B rated school, but most teachers here at Gautier High care about their students and will do almost anything to help students if they actually want to help. Our counselors do a lot to make sure we will be successful after graduating. They have college fairs, college application days, act boot camps, have college tours for college and career ready students and we even have a free act that all juniors take every year during school. When those scores get back students will get a check leading up to $150.00 depending on their score. Here at Gautier High we have 6 college accredited classes, and 10+ vocational classes. Completion of the classes can lead to internships at SRFCU, Ingalls, and many other businesses. Completion of the Health Science program also allows students to graduate as a CNA or a Pharmacy tech

Gautier High School is a pretty decent school. The staff there is excellent. The school spirit is extremely high. The pep rallies are always fun. Our band program is one of the best on the coast, and our school's theatre has such an awesome team and great performances. Our school counselor's involvement with helping the juniors and seniors with their next step after high school, is very encouraging. The school's courtyard and campus looks really nice.
At Gautier High School, I was allowed to experience a lot of high school spirit. From pep rallies (before COVID, of course) to motivational announcements, Gautier High School has done and continues to do everything that they can to keep the students' spirits up. This is truly a wonderful school.
