Gulf Breeze High School has been a fantastic transition and transformation for me, changing me from a lowly-motivated, shy, grumpy boy to a happy, disciplined, more outgoing young man. My old school that I was in for freshman and sophomore year was not terrible, but definitely not great either. In my old school everyone was more worried about themselves, showing little interest to others; several of the staff were difficult to work with; and the workload and the schedule made it stressful for a lot of students. When I transitioned to Gulf Breeze High in my junior year, however, I was exposed to an entirely new paradigm. Most of the students are more outgoing, social, and interested in others; the funding is great with lots of up-to-date facilities, such as the cafeteria and its menu, classrooms, football field, parking lot, hallways, and the gym; the staff are more available and easier to work with; and the courses offered there are incredibly fun and satisfying with little stress.

As a rising senior, I can say I’ve enjoyed my time at this school. The teachers are very approachable and kind and I have never had a poor classroom experience. Teachers thoroughly prepare you for high-level (AP) exams. The school diversity is very low, however; the city of Gulf Breeze itself is primarily white. Sports teams are very enjoyable and involved in their communities through fundraising and volunteering. The award-winning arts program is extremely talented and involved in school culture. Staff/administrators can be difficult at times regarding certain issues, though.
Most the teachers here are great and the cafeteria food isn't too bad. There are a ton of clicks, so I enjoyed the teachers and staff more than the students. The fried chicken is 75% crust and 25% chicken. The wraps are also 75% tortilla. The cookies are amazing, but sell out super fast. The SoundWave Band is the best band in the land. The fine arts need more funding and recognition. The school also closed this side gate because it allowed for jay walking across the street, but that didn't stop anything. Also, the outdoor basketball court got covered by portables because the school is becoming overpopulated, so we need more classrooms. The AC they spent thousands of dollars on goes out way too much. I became alot smarted from this school in the end at least. There needs to be more parking spaces so we don't have to hike to school if we don't show up an hour early to find a spot. The principal is the best I've ever had and is the biggest supporter of all the extracurricular activities.
