The people in this school are like a little family. There are about 500 students, so everybody pretty much knows everybody. We are able to overcome any obstacle together. Even though we might not all have the same social status we are all very respectful to each other for the most part. The education there might not be as great as other high schools, but we still learn what we need to go out into the real world.

Gibson County Highschool has given me a very average but good college experience. Being that it is a small, close-knit highschool, everyone knows everyone and that makes it easy to be involved in activities. I believe I will be prepared for college from attending high school here.
It's a smaller school, so everyone knows each other. Therefore, I am comfortable around the students and the teachers, which makes my high school experience a little more enjoyable.
