It's okay. The teachers are extremely experienced. They also never have fights and students get what they need. However, their discipline when something does happen is not great. They don't really refer anyone to the principal.

Ghent has been a fantastic place to grow up. The students are like family, and the teachers really care about us. The students argue over who has read more books. We participate in courtroom law, national junior honor society, and take high school classes. Our school scores a lot of Pass Advanced on SOL tests each year. Teachers are friendly and want you to learn and do well.
Very fun time when I was younger playing after school tennis or running club
