Gilmour Academy Reviews
At Gilmour character is one of the most important traits we are taught. Honesty, integrity, and respect are the three main character attributes we are constantly reminded of.
By attending Gilmour I have become the best version of myself. I am now a better person, athlete, and student.
As someone that has attended GA, has met other former alumni and other private school students from the area, Gilmour by far was the worst private school on the East side. The board and staff are incredibly nepotistic, with strange amounts of former graduates working there (under qualified teachers, staff there through connections etc.) it feels like the old boys club.
I appreciate a Catholic education, but the school lacks diversity of students. When I ask the vast majority of my colleagues who move to Cle for medical, tech, etc. they are severely unimpressed by GA.
The atmosphere feels very oppressive and students who do enjoy their time at school are incredibly rude and oftentimes racist. Most former alumni who actually succeed in a career or do some cool thing abroad or in a big city attest that it was the worst years of their life and the only people the schools seem to retain are the same wealthy Irish/ Italian Catholic families.
