    Gilmour is a great for many reasons. There are many wonderful academic, extra-curricular and sports opportunities. The moral and spiritual development of the students is a great priority. Most teachers are extremely dedicated and willing to assist students in any way they can. A few teachers would be more successful teaching on a collegiate level, since they basically utilize a lecture style of teaching. Overall, a wonderful school with a very welcoming atmosphere.

    I have attended Gilmour all four years of my high school career. Gilmour has many positives including the very large and newly renovated athletic center. The swimming pool and many basketball courts are beautiful. However, some facilities such as the fine arts building are shut down due to a black mold incident.

    The teachers are phenomenal throughout the English and science department. However, one particularly weak point of the teaching staff is the math department. The math department has always been, in my experience, relatively lacking teachers that can explain complex concepts, especially in higher level math classes.
    I graduated from Gilmour in '63, a few years ago. Excellent school, high standards, great academics, good sports. Attended school 5 1/2 days/wk dressed is a sport coat and tie. Robert Lighthizer, current US Trade Representative graduated two years behind me.
