Gila Ridge High School Reviews

I loved my high school experience overall. Particularly, I enjoyed the extra-curricular activities I was in (volleyball, track, AcaDec, choir) and the teachers/ coaches I had. They were like my family! However, it wasn't the cleanest or safest environment and it was definitely lacking in sexual health education. But, as a whole, I feel it is one of the better high schools in Yuma, AZ.
Review Gila Ridge High School
It is a joy to walk the halls of this school, seeing smile after smile, sharing laughs with my peers, teachers, counselors, and faculty. I have done very well throughout my experience here, and the reason for that is because this high school has an enjoyable environment not only where you study, but also where you make new friends, be creative, and show your school spirit at the pep assemblies, football games, peach fuzz, powderpuff, and spirit days. It has been easy for me to succeed and stay involved throughout the years because there are so many options here. So far, I have done marching band, tennis, basketball, concert band, golf, National Honors Society, Academic Decathlon, and Junior statesman of America all while maintaining a 4.0 GPA. Every student here is talented and unique in their own ways which is why it is such a great school. I can't wait for the years to come!
Teachers at Gila Ridge are great, some more than others and encourage us to strive for success! Many teachers on this campus will make work come into real-life experiences which changes the whole learning process. They're very intelligent and have tutoring hours after school for students needing extra help. They're great communicators and are awesome and I believe the grading is fair.
