Gaylord High School Reviews
I like all the opportunities at Gaylord High to do anything your heart desires and not feel ashamed for it. There is a great attitude for school spirit and students around me are always working to make it better. Even though we have great school spirit, the teachers can be a little rude and overwhelmingly bad at their jobs in instances. Other than that, great school!
Gaylord High School offers some of the best teachers around though there are a few exceptions. Our Maths, Science, and English scores are the best in our area, and we consistently score better than the national average in tests in the same areas. Personally, the teachers I have had over the last few years for Chemistry, English Language, World History, and Chemistry have been the best educators I have ever had. However, some of the teachers the run the smaller elective classes could be much better, and the poor teachers we have had for our physics classes have resulted in the class being canceled. However, overall Gaylord's teachers are great.
Gaylord High School, located in Northern Michigan, is a very safe school. Never have there been any serious threats toward the school, nor are there very many instances of fights or bullying during the school day. Regarding health programs at the school, I was recently on a board overseeing the creation of a new health clinic located at the school, providing students with many of the functions that are normally reserved for a proper doctors office. All in all, there Gaylord does very well to protect its students from any types of threats, whether they be external or internal.
