Gonzaga College High School Reviews

Gonzaga is a multi faceted institution. First, the course load is demanding. Every student can decide just how much they are willing to challenge themselves. Honors and Advanced Placement courses are available through hard work. Second, all teachers are highly qualified. Every faculty member has one or more degrees and most are enthusiastic about their work. Next, the extra-curricular activities are varied and engaging. If you think something is missing, take the initiative and create it. In addition, sports are highly competitive. Faith and teamwork are an integral part of the athletic program. Finally, "Men for Others" is Gonzaga's motto and a major part requires every student to be less self-centered and more concerned with our fellow man, our community and the world around us. A rigorous academic course load, qualified teachers, extra-curricular activities, athletics, and opportunities to serve others are all reasons why Gonzaga is extraordinary.

I’m wrapping up my last year at Gonzaga, and I honestly counted not have picked a better place to go to high school. The education is rigorous and enduring at times but you will definitely see yourself grow as a student and as an individual throughout your 4 years. Gonzaga allows you to think differently and it’s education stretches beyond the five core classes. It covers topics on race, ethical issues of today, social justice, and our duty to be men for others. The athletics are successful and the facilities are awesome. The sense of community and love you get from the entire Gonzaga community carries with you for the rest of your life. There’s a reason alumni often come back to pop in and saw hello to teachers they had and come to the annual Smoker.
My experience at Gonzaga was, overall, positive. The strong sense of community is overwhelming, and the brotherhood is bonding. It could improve if the administration could do something about teachers with an overwhelming amount of failing, and barely passing students. Also, the lunch costs too much, and students should get discounts at school events like sports games.
