Everyday was a great day at GHS! Every student showed up to learn, and every teacher showed up to teach. There were many students from different backgrounds who all blended together so well. Their motto was: Family. I can recall a time when the football team went to the championship and nearly every player dyed their hair pink! They would have fun pep rallies and a great turnout to every sporting event. Me, being a transfer student, I was a little hesitant to participate in activities at first. To my surprise, though, everyone welcomed me with open arms which made me feel right at home. Attending Giddings High School was a great experience that I would not trade for the world.
Giddings High School is amazing. The teachers work so hard to make sure my grades stay up where they need to be, as well as make our lessons entertaining. I never fall asleep in class because of how eager we all are to learn. Go Buffs go!
