I love coming to this school! It is a safe environment with passionate teachers, and its administration is very friendly. One thing that makes this school stand out from all the rest is how it prepares its students using different techniques. They have a range of classes, technology devices, and teachers that are available to the student's request. It is a very clean and well-kept building that cares deeply about the environment that it creates for everyone. It is obvious to the outsider that Germantown high school is eager to work with their students and the education they are teaching.

Our family has been active in our school since its opening in August 2011. Administrators and faculty are top-notch. PTO is one of the most active and creative in our state. Athletics, Bands, Choirs, Arts, and Academics have placed in top categories of competition since the beginning. We are proud to be Mavericks!
This is my first year at Germantown High School. So far this has been one of the best schools i’ve ever been to. The school’s teachers and administrators actually teach and do a great job at it. Everyone here has a welcoming spirit and over all the atmosphere here is OUTSTANDING! It was definitely a life changer when my parents moved my siblings and I here, but at this point I wouldn’t dare leave if anyone paid me. Shout out to Mr.Quick and Ms.Burell and the other principals as well. Excellent Job
