    My time at GPL has been amazing so far. All the faculty and staff want to see their students succeed. They work hard to help us understand the learning material, and go out of their way to help and answer questions. GPL has also provided me and many other students with a firm foundation in our faith, which is the schools goal. One of the things I have enjoyed most at GPL is being involved in sports. Here the coaches push us to be the best we can while constantly encouraging, and teaching us many lessons. I am beyond thankful for my time here, and can't wait to start the next semester!

    Great Plains Lutheran High School is a very small school in Watertown High School. There are pros and cons of having such a small school. It is very easy to make friends! It is especially fun to have kids who live there in the dorms all school year too! Classes could be a little more challenging to prepare for college, though.
    I love my experience at Great Plains Lutheran High School! The student to teacher ratio is very good which allows me to get a lot of one on one time with teachers. The community at GPLHS resembles that of a family. Everyone is super supportive and friendly to one another because of our mutual love for our Savior.
