Gloucester Country Institute of Technology (GCIT) is a great school. You apply for a certain trade you want to take up at the school. I chose the culinary arts route. The chefs are phenomenal! The academic teachers were decent, some could be better. They were very involved with clubs, since we had to chose one each year and participate every Friday. Sports are pretty big in GCIT and we take them seriously . The only flaw being their guidance department. My guidance counselor did not get back to me for weeks. I know they had other students but weeks is unnecessary, other students had the same problem. All and all, GCIT is a great school with lots of diversity in activities, students, and staff.

Gloucester County Institute of Technology is an amazing school! It is a great environment to be in. The school provides many opportunities for students! One of the multiple opportunities are the career technical student organizations that provide students with leadership development and building up skills in certain career-based areas including construction, culinary arts, and more. Gloucester County Institute of Technology has various programs of different career fields which prepares the students with the knowledge and experience to achieve goals with determination and to go far in the specific field.
GCIT for the most part is an amazing school. Most of the teachers there want to see you succeed, and care about you. The programs allow kids to develop valuable skills and character that appeals to employers and colleges. The programs themselves force diversity. You might be an IT nerd, who has lunch with a someday-famous dancer. And the person who made your food? Sitting next to you, too. GCIT altogether is a one of a kind experience. There's never a dull moment. The only real knock I can give, is that the sports programs are very poor. Successful athletes can go unnoticed, because our program doesn't hold a candle to those such as Kingway's. In fact, many kids play their sport at other schools, so they have a better chance of being seen. Overall however, GCIT produces admirable students.
