Some of the few good things about GCHS are the teachers, but otherwise, the school and others in the system have pest problems (including cockroaches being a common occurrence), barely functioning appliances, and very few programs for students to participate in.

Overall, the school has been pretty average. Some of the administration have very clear bias and certain groups of students get extreme favoritism. The student activities have dropped dramatically, and student organizations continue to decrease. The main academic positive is the chance for dual enrollment offered by the local college to any students that meet the GPA requirements.
Student Council is the best thing this high school has to offer! My favortive high school memories are from being involved in student council and going to all the leadership conferences.
