Gilbert High School is full of experiences! From there sports, academics, arts, and culture they are very welcoming and give you plenty of opportunities. The way they do classes at the high school and the way they teach has helped the students grow. The students like to compete with themselves to get the best grades they can and are always supportive of your decisions. As a school they are very competitive and are getting better every school year. I know for a fact that Gilbert's athletics (specifically both girls and boys soccer, basketball, and xc) are really competitive and know how to have fun at practices and games!

I enjoy Gilbert High School because of its academic opportunities, sports teams, and fine arts programs. GHS has an incredible staff of hard-working teachers who do their best to help students succeed. They provide a variety of teaching styles and assignment types to ensure that students get a well-rounded understanding of each topic. Gilbert also offers DMACC concurrent courses which allow students to earn college credit while still in high school. In addition, GHS has a variety of sports teams. With the combination of the facilities, coaching staff, and hard-working athletes, many students excel in Gilbert's sports programs. Finally, the fine arts program at Gilbert is outstanding. Again there are a variety of participation possibilities including band, choir, speech, musicals, art, and more. Not only do these programs support students while in school, but they also give back to the community through many performances. Overall, Gilbert is an excellent high school to attend.
The best element of Gilbert High School is the teacher-student relationships, & a full circle family-friendly setting. There are humanitarians at GHS who fight bullying, stand for students, & work for a well-rounded learning environment — an excellent school to survive single parenting life & raise a well-educated, college ready teen. The sports programs are good. I highly recommend track, golf and wrestling programs. New buildings are coming soon! There is a talented principal who has respect of parents & students. We for a greater emphasis on performing arts and dance club. Overall, Gilbert teachers & staff are high-quality individuals w/best interest of the students. I'm proud to be a GPS parent.
