Girls' High is such an amazing school. The Alumnae are very nice and respectable! Soon as you mention you are a Girls' High Girl, everyone automatically has high expectations for you. Girls' High Girls are everywhere ! One thing I would like to see change is more of the Alumnae giving back to their alma mater ! It would make all the difference.
Review Girls High School
I currently attended Girls high and I absolutely love it! This year I am a sophomore and this school gives me the exact challenge I was looking for. The teachers are very supportive and are willing to help students at any time. Also, there are a lot of assemblies preparing the girls for college and just to have a good time and make school a bit fun.
Overall my high school was a good school. Despite the lack of funds to keep up the facility and lack of quality in the food, the academic nature of the school is very good. Many teachers are devoted to helping students prepare for college and their lives overall as independent adults. I specially enjoyed the Advanced Placement classes, which were rigorous but very enjoyable. These classes and teachers helped prepare me a lot for the upcoming work load and quality of work the my college demands.
