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.

A sense of community is the first and foremost thing you’ll experience at Gilbert. Whether it’s a packed crowd for a Tuesday night volleyball game or having service dogs come in during finals week to relieve some stress (yes, you read that right), the Gilbert community comes second to none. There’s really no complaints to be made about the school district; at Gilbert you are prioritized as a student and always feeling welcomed.
In my time as a student at Gilbert, I have learned tons about what it means to be a leader and a hard worker. Gilbert has a culture of excellence in all fields, academics, fine arts, and athletics. There is a true care for the safety and well being of students. I have never seen someone who didn't have a strong relationship with at least one teacher. There is a diversity of teaching styles and personalities at Gilbert. Though my experience at Gilbert, I found my identity. something that I didn't even have an Idea of coming out of middle school. And the Identity I refer to is so much more than just knowing what I want to do. I learned about who I am. I learned and developed my own values and I learned my limits as well as how to push them to become better in everything I do. I give this school four stars instead of five because even though I have learned so much, some faculty lacks open mindedness.
