Gray-New Gloucester High School Reviews

I see GNG as a place where students thrive in the curriculum by challenging themselves to go above and beyond what's asked of them socially and academically. This school embraces and accepts one another for who we are and our differences. There's not a single person in the community who doesn't attend our Friday night football games in the fall, and though we don't get too many wins out of our season, the patriot pride and support we hold for all of our teams year-round are reflected in our everyday activities. Academically there is an innovation in our school system that has left our academic opportunities incomparable to others. Our programs and involvement in the community make us a very close-knit school. This schools revolves around the community and has left an impact on every inch of Gray and New Gloucester as well as it's students, parents, volunteers, and every person who has walked the halls of GNG; which is why I'm glad I can call myself a true patriot.

The school itself is very average, but the IB program makes up for many of its faults. The building is not amazing, the sports teams can be annoying, and there isn't much of a budget to go around, but at least we can graduate with an IB diploma. Also, the curriculum is very inconvenient, because we're required to have 1.5 credits of gym (as well as many other district requirements), which doesn't fit into students' schedules well.
Looking back on my days at GNG I have to say I was lucky. After leaving the school and experiencing teachers from other schools it made me realize the passion among the teachers at GNG to educate their students. The staff, for the most part, is young and ambitious. Their youth makes the classrooms feel adventurous, as they, the teachers, are learning alongside their students.
Their use of technology in the classroom is cutting-edge and exciting. It allows students to have a more hands-on and personal experience with the material being taught. The students are allowed to take their learning and research a step further outside the classroom that elevates the level of learning to new standard for other schools.
GNG was my first public school, however, it taught me to cherish my educators when they are as excited as you are on the material that is being taught.
