Gilford High School Reviews
I liked that Gilford was a small school with students and teachers who knew everyone. I also liked that they made attempts to improve the culture and experience for students, however they could have put a little more effort into this. Change starts with great ideas which Gilford has, there is just no solid follow through. Because of this, students and teachers are frustrated and there seems to be no positive change at all. My recommendation would be to thoroughly research their ideas and then keep fighting for it. Gilford High School has a time worn pattern of starting change and then backing out as soon as there is any opposition which there will always be in life.I wish the best of luck to those standing up for what they believe in when trying to create a better schooling experience.
I attended Gilford High School for all four years of high school. I was fortunate enough to participate in a large variety of extracurriculars and enjoyed them greatly. Nothing compares to the incredible teachers this school has procured. They go above and beyond to teach you and guide you. The guidance counselors and the administration work extremely hard to make sure you succeed and have every college opportunity open to you, including showing you many ways to find and apply for scholarships.
I had an outstanding 4 years at Gilford HS! I was from a surrounding town that went there for high school. I am successful academically and athletically. I maintain honor roll grades (honors classes) and am a three sport varsity athlete since my freshman year.
