Gilbert High School is an environment with high standards and friendly people. I moved into the school district from Illinois for my senior year. I was welcomed with open arms, friendly faces and a very comfortable environment. The diversity isn't great, but the minorities who do attend Gilbert High School are welcomed and friends with everyone. Academically, the teachers are top-notch and the school as a whole prepares students very well for college. Athletically, the sports teams are average, but the atmosphere at the games is always positive and the community and school district are very supportive.

Gilbert High School has some of the best academic turnout in the entire state of Iowa. It is a Blue Ribbon school and is known for being high achieving in both sports and academics. It is a very small school so each student will get to know almost every teacher on campus personally. However, because of its size, the student population lacks in diversity and is rather conservative. However, Gilbert High School is under new management due to a change in principals and safety, happiness, and peace are top priorities. Gilbert stays true to its slogan: "Every student, every day."
I have gone to Gilbert since the 4th grade and I am going to be a senior this fall. My experience has been amazing, it is such a great school. Every single one of my teachers have been reliable and so helpful in any way. Although Gilbert is growing more every year I still consider it a small school where I can know all of my peers.
