I love Gridley High School because of its small size. Since it’s quite small, many people are close and almost everyone has associated with each other a handful of times. The teachers are also much easier to speak to and many staff members and teachers have relationships with students. What I would love to see change is the amount of classes and the variety of classes for students to choose, as well as equal recognition or equal financial split for the high school sports teams. Having more sports teams would be great as well! Many people, including parents and the student body as well as teachers, have been wanting to see a boys volleyball team this year, but financially, it’s been very difficult. It has also been very difficult due to lack of knowledge, however it’s is very well supported by everyone!

The High School was very College thinking. A student would get the necessary help from the counselor if they decided to join the military. The Administration didn't pay attention to the arts and music programs and would cut the budgets to the program and focus solely on the athletics department. Many projects and activities were funded for out of pocket or from fundraising for the art program can get new paint or paper, and the band to obtain new sheet music. Teachers were continually interchanging across all of the departments. A teacher retired and came back the next year because there wasn't a replacement. The English Department also went a whole year without a sophomore-level English teacher and instead had subs all year. The students had to be rich to partake in some of the activities.
I like Gridley High because it’s a small school with smaller classroom size. The teachers make a point to connect to each student. I love that our school came together during the Camp Fire to help support evacuees. Although I’ve had a great experience at Gridley High, I do think our school lacks diversity and could improve their facilities.
