As a senior at Glacier Peak High School (GP), I have been blessed with the opportunity to receive my education in this facility. Not only has GP taught me unique ways to excel in my academics, but it has made me grow as a person. Going into high school, my past years in school were miserable. I was always made fun of because of my size, and because of that I was very insecure and shy. I didn't have many friends and didn't like to get out of my comfort zone and speak up when I needed or wanted to. Once I got to GP that all changed. Immediately, I felt the urge to push through my comfort zones and almost instantly felt right at home. What I admire so much about my GP is that no matter where you come from, or who you are as a person, everyone in the facility welcomes every single person with open arms. If I were to change anything about the school it would be the diversity and adding to it would make the grizzly family bigger and better!

Glacier Peak was like a safe home for my four years, where I not only learned about English and math, but also I learned who I was. It helped develop the person I have become, pushing me to work hard, study hard, and be friendly to each and every person around me. This was a great school and I am so honored to have been able to be apart of this community!
Glacier Peak is a super cool school! I felt like the staff and the students always tried to involve everyone make it a generally happy place to be. In my four years, we did have a lot of problems with people pulling pranks like fake bomb threats, but it was always dealt with quickly and professionally.
