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 attended Gilmour Academy, and my overall experience was great, except for some of the teachers are unwilling to help, and will talk about you behind your back. Most or 90% of the teachers are nice and helpful, but some teachers are out-right wrong and disrespectful and deserve to be fired. Certain teachers will talk behind your back tell the class your grades if you are struggling and then refuse to help you too. I have evidence a teacher was talking about about another student because another teacher approached me and asked me questions about that teacher and the class, plus the teacher talks about other students to me. Not all of the teachers are disrespectful, but watch out for the 2-3 per grade-level teachers who are disrespectful. The overall experience outside of that was great because I was able to meet new friends and interact with people I have never met. I have met people from around the world and it teaches me different aspects of life.
The overall experience has been incredibly positive for the entire family. There is a wonderful community that exists with parents, teachers and students working together to achieve excellence academy wide-in the classroom, academic programming and extracurricular activities. Small class size allows for individualized instruction. The vision of providing students with the competence to see and the courage to lead in creating a more just and humane society resonated with us and the Holy Cross foundation allows for the education of the whole child-heart and mind. I continue to be impressed with the product that Gilmour puts out!
