Georgetown High School Reviews
Georgetown is a VERY competitive school. It does depend on your class, but you could be a genius and not even get close to top of the class. There isn’t much to do, so many students just focus on academics. AP classes are extremely selective and hard to get into. Socially, there is little diversity and if you don’t fit in, you’re screwed because it’s a small school. The resources aren’t there to do anything amazing. Try and start a club, my idea got shut down. It leads to the college readiness factor. Nobody is encouraged to do anything amazing; nobody will get into top schools. Teachers are amazing but there are a few bad ones. Super supportive to students with disabilities (especially more “minor” ones). Many passionate conservatives are at the school. A bit of hate but no fights. My experience was bad, but I also moved. If you’re kid grew up with their classmates they’ll be fine.
Georgetown as a whole is a very cliquey community and so I did not entirely enjoy my high school experience. There were gossipy mothers that got too involved with school drama, there were typical high school popular groups. That being said, I received an excellent education. Not every teacher was the best but they all care deeply about their students. I could go to any person in that school with a problem, academic or not, and they would help me out. There are some teachers that are way better than others but again, they are mostly all super caring. The AP classes were great, I am already a semester ahead at my university because of AP credit. Overall, this school is great in preparing kids for higher education. There are also many cool clubs. The small town drama just comes with the territory of living in Georgetown unfortunately.
Georgetown feels like a tight-knit community. I've seen people that I've never talked to ask me if I was okay when I wasn't. The teachers (at least some of them, and the English department is AMAZING) care about me - and I mean genuinely. I remember my sophomore English teacher is the first professional I ever openly told I was bisexual. She gave me my first pride flag and I was so happy I could cry because I felt like she was accepting of me. This was honestly crucial to my mental health at the time and still is a memory I hold close to my heart.
