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.

While Gilbert excels in academics, they fall short on actually taking care of their students. I have found it to be a place where I do when and the classes are hard, but not to hard. I am able to do well, and I feel like the teachers care about my success. However, I think some staff members and students are ignorant. I do not care for the closed mindedness of the people there, but I'm glad to have a good education.
Gilbert is a small school located near Ames, Iowa and benefits greatly from the proximity. The district operates with the students benefit in mind, and it shows. Fine arts and athletics are highly valued, and the teachers and academics are top notch. The recent renovations of the schools and the new high school make for great learning environments. Gilbert is a wonderful place to grow up.
