What I like about Gltech is that it's a school that gives you the opportunity to work hands on rather than always classwork. This school prepares you for the future by showing you different skills to learn ,and help advance your working techniques that not other schools do. Along with this, our school takes pride in sports as well. We offer many different activities for students to participate in. Club's are also offered , such as chess club, math club, and Skills . Skills is a competition realting to the shop you choose , and allows students to compete with other school involving your trade. It's also FREE! I love my school very much and I'm glad I had chosen this place to spend all 4 years in.
This school has provides many opportunities for the students to experience hands on rather than always focusing on academic. Although some of the school policy and the faculty are a little strict, they prepares students for the futures and their success. Students are able to make their decision in what trade they want to focus on. There’s always a teacher that would guide the student in making important decisions for their future. The teachers and students get along very well, which make the lesson more engaging and enjoyable for student to learns. There’s many extracurriculars activities such as dance, skills, drama and sports, to provide the opportunity for every students to be involve. There’s always a chance for students to participate in a community services to help out those in needs. GLTHS is greater place that allow students to learns both academic and a trade.
