The GMG schools may not be the best ones out there, but it's definitely better than any of Marshalltown's. It comes with smaller class sizes, better teachers, better involvement, and better food at the cost of some clubs/activities. I recommend this school over any of the Marshalltown schools.

The GMG school district is amazing the school is full of uplift spirit and everyone is proud to be a wolverine. The sports may not be as good as other schools but the academics are top notch. The teachers are preparing us for real life college experiences. My favorite teacher is Mr. Samek, he teaches the science for 7th grade to 12th grade. He teaches everyone like a college professor, because he knows we can make it anywhere if we do the work now.
I had a lot of fun at my high school. I liked our new facilities, such as the new gym we got and the new weight room that was built. A few things I would like to see change would be better laptops for all of the students because they are starting to get slow. I also would like to see the older part of the school updated because there is no air conditioning and in the winter in some rooms we need the windows open because the old boiler system gets too hot and is uncomfortable. Overall I still liked my school and my experience, both athletically and academically.
