I like the diversity of students in Gulf High School. Due to the school offering International Baccalaureate program, there were students of different backgrounds from the county coming to the school. I met people of different cultures, which informed me a lot about different values and beliefs. In general, there were very different personalities between groups of people which could be seen. I’d change how the school didn’t engage very much with the students. It felt the school was very static and there was no way to have all students come together. Most of the staff felt distant from students.

I like the international baccalaureate program since I am a part of it, however, it is not as established as the other schools in the surrounding area are. We students do not have as many options as we can have for this program, and many times the teachers that they hire are really cool people but not the greatest teachers. The administrators, apart from a few, are condescending and controlling, it feels as if I am not treated with respect as a student, by them. The students that I have encountered are very enjoyable people and I appreciate that, but that is because I am a part of IB, the majority of the school dislikes IB kids and I do not understand why. Some of them are rude, but many of them as incredibly pleasant people.
I enjoyed the experience I had while in the Gulf High International Baccalaureate program. I made many long lasting friends and the teachers I had all were very encouraging and taught me to enjoy learning. The surrounding students were also very kind and would almost always hold the doors for other students arriving to class while in the hallways. Though the school often has difficulty providing the tools to assist students’ learning ability; the teachers and students make due of of what they have given a smaller budget. The community is not as wealthy as other surrounding schools but the people within the school are kind and make for an enjoyable high school experience.
