GCMS is an amazing school. The teachers are all willing to help you when you need help. There are many different sports and different clubs. I wish they were more clubs based on what students want though. The school is extremely welcoming and I love GCMS. They keep the school really clean, and the students participate regularly with school spirit and with helping others out.

The teachers there were very supportive and the classes helped me learn a lot. The school also had a very nice community of students and faculty who were all very supportive. One thing that was really cool was that if you were a senior with good grades you could leave during lunch and study hall. This was very nice if you didn’t want to eat at school or if you wanted to go home during study hall. The whole community felt very safe and welcoming, and even as a new student who only moved there for the last year of high school, I felt instantly accepted. Altogether a great place to go to high school. Although, it could possibly have used a few more parking spots.
At GCMS, there is nothing that needs to be changed. They over a wide variety of classes so that every student can discover there likes and dislikes for their future careers. GCMS is also a very positive and welcoming environment.
