Gilbert Classical Academy High School Reviews

Gilbert Classical Academy is an exceptional school. It is small, so everybody is comfortable and friends with everybody. It is difficult, challenging, and fast-paced which I enjoy. However, there is a lot of people who wouldn't make it here for that reason. There is a good balance of strict teachers and fun, laid-back teachers. I am genuinely happy here!
However, that is not to day that everything is perfect. I feel that with more funding, Gilbert Classical Academy could be the best school in Arizona. Right now, we lack the facilities necessary for certain sports as well as teachers for more interesting electives. Gilbert Classical Academy only offers arts like orchestra, art, and guitar as electives. I would like to anatomy & physiology, financial applications, and technology as electives. At the same time, that would require more students. Therefore, I understand wanting to maintain the small, intelligent, and dedicated community that we are.

Teachers and staff at Gilbert Classical Academy encourage their students to achieve the impossible. Because it's such a small school, students are able to connect and develop strong relationships with their peers and administrators. In addition to that, the rigor at GCA is so competitive that it guarantees your child with the best educational experience that's possible, in which will prepare your child for college. Furthermore, GCA has counselors that are always open to talk to about your child's educational career preceding junior high and high school. I definitely recommend for you to consider this school!
GCA was a school whose main goal is to prepare you for college. From what I have heard from past alumni, that is something that the school easily accomplishes. One thing that bettered my personal experience at GCA was the community. Being a small school, it honestly is easier to get to know people and make new friends. Everyone knows everyone and we all get to create a close relationship that you wouldn't normally see at a bigger high school. Most of the teachers are incredible- constantly showing care and generosity towards the students and always wanting to improve their experiences. The curriculum is vigorouss, but it is managable and only prepares you for the workload you will receive in college. Overall, I would recommend attending Gilbert Classical Academy because the relationships that come out of it, along with the great education is something to always be remembered.
