All the teachers really care for you and want to help you get to walking across the stage. The environment is just super fantastic and its like another home to me. It's a safe place to be. Some things I would change are the bell schedules, but that's all. 3 bell schedule changes is a little hard to adapt to. I've had great experiences with my teachers and my peers. Great school!

In the very beginning my experience at GCHS was ambiguous. There were days I truly enjoyed coming, to spend time with friends, to interact with favorite teachers but there were days where I had no motivation, where I stressed over drama i always got dragged into, exacerbate over a math problem I struggled to do. Yet, I spent my whole highschool life here and even though there were moments that weren't in my control, I will always reminisce over the times where I smiled from ear to ear, memories unforgettable, those times in my life from 14 to 18 will always be known to me as my golden years.
My experience at Greeley Central High School was okay. I would of liked it if they weren't strict on how the students wanted to show off our school spirit all because of the School Safely Policy. This school barely has any assembly's we have at least 1-2 in a year they should include more. I have had a couple of teacher that made me question: " why are you even a teacher?" When i had them it was difficult to understand their teaching and i had to find ways to make it easier to teach myself so that i can understand what was going on. I've heard multiple students say the same thing about some of the teachers. I can say they need to hire better teachers. Don't get me started with the food its trash! The cookers need to learn how to cook the food entirely some of it would be warm and some of it would be cold which was gross one reason why people wont we the school food or would rather go out to eat.
