I enjoyed Gilbert High School very much! The best part about this school was the faculty, as whenever I needed help in my assignments they never hesitated. Plus, the counselors did an amazing job preparing the students for college and allowing them to be comfortable with their future. As someone who takes their studies seriously, I appreciated the fact that there were all sorts of higher-up courses I could take. I enjoyed taking dual enrollment and AP courses to prepare myself for my future, and the teachers were always very understanding and willing to help me whenever I got stuck in the difficult classes.

I can not remember a single day of high school when in the morning I dreaded the idea of spending 8+ hours within the halls and practice fields of Gilbert High School. All the teachers always showed they cared for us and our education. Anybody that entered the doors of that pride filled building could tell that every single staff member had a passion for what they did. Even with all the hormones that 14-18 year old kids have, it was a very rare occasion to see a student with a frown on their face. It was a great experience and it left me walking off the football field on graduation night remembering all the great times that were spent there!
Gilbert High school, so far, has been such an amazing experience! I have been part of the dance program for three years and it has taught me discipline, responsibility, and hardwork. The teachers and staff are always there when you have a question and push us passed our limits.
