The school itself has a really strong academic teaching, but administration lacks authority sometimes and isn't willing to listen to opposing views. I once heard from a black student that they went to administration due to racial bullying and the administration said they wouldn't do anything about it. Overall, everyone is pretty nice and open.
Germantown High School is an athletically focused school. They take their anti-cellphone policy very seriously. While it sucks to not be able to use your phone at all during the school day, it does help students pay more attention during class. There are a lot of AP classes you can take and they finally built a new Performing Arts Center for the choir and band. I definitely think they are getting better as a school. There are still a lot of drug problems, with most of the student population, with about 6 students being expelled for drug possession just in the 2018-2019 school year.
