My overall experience at Graham High School has been wonderful and full of excitement. The faculty are important caring members. They have prepared me most significantly to graduate high school and to go to college. I would have enough attention from a teacher so that if i'm having trouble with school work they would always be convenient enough to stop what their doing and help me. Every year of High School I would always make new friends that would also take time off to help me,as of do I. Graham High School has all the arts including band,theater,dance,art,and chorus which not most of the schools in Alamance County have. Band is my favorite, I've been in band ever since 6th grade and have enjoyed it since. My band teacher is a wonderful director and will always be my favorite teacher. Therefore, I wouldn't change a thing about it honestly.

I'm a Senior at the moment, and I've had the best time so far. I'm at a public school, but its really good and there are heaps of good oppotunities. The friends and relationships I 've made will never be forgotten and the people are actually really nice, there are barely any bitchy ones at all!! Also, the subjects you can do, you would be surprised the range there is to choose from, there is something for everyone!! And the camps, excursions, special events and other opportunities such as exchanges with schools from other states or countries is the best. Sport is also one of the best parts of high school too, but even if you are not into it, music and art programs are generally really good. High school are some of the best years of your life, so don't waste it.
Be yourself, get out there and enjoy!!
Graham High School has an incredible fine arts program that tries their hardest in every single project that they create to represent not only their respective branch of art, but also GHS as a whole. The teachers try their best to support their students and understand that students can have a lot of stress on their plate, and work with them in order to help them. Graham High School may be perceived as a "ghetto" school to others in the community, but honestly, I wouldn't want to go to any other high school for the world.
