I absolutely loved my time at Gladstone High School! I was online through Gladstone because I lived an hour away and my parents wouldn't let me travel that far. With some convincing, they let me go to school as a senior. From the minute I walked into the door as a "new" student, I felt so welcomed from the students, teachers etc. From my short experience at this school, it made me so sad on graduation day because it was over so soon and really made me wish I was able to attend the school sooner!

I liked the smaller class sizes and the extracurricular activities, but I wish the strict rules and favoritism wasn't something we had here.
I enjoyed the opportunities to participate in various sports and extra curricular clubs. I enjoyed being able to take online college courses for credit. I was able to start my college career in high school. I would like to see more opportunities for tutoring in various subjects, especially the math classes.
