It has been pretty good attending Gordo High. The good thing about attending Gordo High, is that there is a great deal of support from all the staff, coaches, and other supporters associated with the high school. The academics at Gordo are excellent. There arent many bad things that come from Gordo. The only bad thing, is the food. But I would definitely refer someone to this school.

I have spent my entire high school career at Gordo High School. Everything, from academics to athletics are great. This school is so proud of every student attending and we are a family here. Teachers strive to help students achieve their best success as a student here. Attending Gordo High School was a blessing.
The community is behind the school`s direction so the support system is awesome. Teachers are more than helpful when it comes to helping students.The administration takes students complaints and tries to better the school.
