I love the people here and most of my teachers. The school spirit goes above and beyond. The students are very diverse, there isn't really a group of popular people that lead the school because each group has its own popular kids. The students I know are very supportive with things like mental health or any other problems. However, from personal experience, the faculty members are not the best at supporting victims of any type of harassment or assault.

The teachers at Great Falls High are great! They are supportive and enthusiastic. When they are teaching, they try and make the learning interactive and easy to understand. They elaborate in great detail to ensure that every student is learning. If they suspect am issue they will be support and talk to you about it either before school or after school. One great thing about our teachers is that they will always make time for their students.
Great falls high is a great school, that is modern in its appriach ro teaching but makes you feel like you are going to one of those romanticized high schools of the fifties. Everything you would expect and want high school to be can be achieved here. In some ways it feels like the same school my grandmother would've gone but it also includes all the modern things a 21st century student needs.
