They we're super good with those of us that transferred from Ridgewood and welcomed us with open arms! I have loved being in their band program these past two years! However, the custodians lately haven't been cleaning the school as well as they should be; it got gross over winter break. Lately, our administration has also been changing quite frequently so these people don't get to know each other well enough to work together as a unit for the school.

I value education, to be clear, but the time here felt like a waste. I see it as more of a problem with the typical 6 60 minute period structure more than anything, which isn't anything unique to Gulf High School. The full time is hardly ever used effectively, and most of the important work is done at home. Students have to stay there, sitting, for 6 hours a day in a drab environment. I am not saying that other schools aren't the same, I am just describing my experience. If you can't find anyone to relate with, then its just you in a depressing, ugly, and critical environment, when you would (hopefully) rather be at home. It is really not that bad, I suppose, but expressing oneself is difficult. This is just my attempt. Maybe my attention span is just too short. For this method of schooling.
The IB program at Gulf High School has many caring teachers who want to help you pass. They are taking additional measures to make sure you receive your IB diploma. The workload can be challenging, but the teachers help push you to do your best, however, they are understanding so they do their best to alleviate some stress by rewarding students with "IB activity day." The IB staff coordinates days after school where students in IB spend time with each other by eating complementary ice cream, playing games, or even having a picnic together.
