Gulfport High School is excellent, from the principles to the counselors to the teachers. All of the staff members want what's best for the students. Not only do students receive a basic education but also an advanced education . Gulfport High gave me the opportunity to take advanced classes, college courses for both Jefferson Davis Community College and Gulfport High School, middle college (where you would be enrolled in high school and college at the same time and graduate with an associates and your GED), and also institute classes which are classes that help you decide what career field you are interested in. Here at this school you will be prepared for college and your career before you ever get started. Gulfport is in fact an excellent school!

I love how much Gulfport High School supports non-college careers. In today’s society, teens tend to have a perspective that it’s either college or flipping burgers. Gulfport High has so many academic institutes that prepare students to enter a trade school, and some of them can even have students certified to enter the workforce after graduation. I love passing by the construction and engineering rooms from the second floor and looking at all the productivity and creativity. In addition, I believe that it is important for future teachers and medical field students to be in teacher readiness and MedTech classes. Even though I plan on attending college, I think it is important that students know that there are other options, and Gulfport High School does a great job at that with its academic institutes.
My experience at the Gulfport School District was miraculous. Everyone, from what I experienced, was kind, patient, and understanding. I never encountered trouble with administration or the teaching staff. Based on my years there (2014-2018) I encountered a tight knit family who always strived to be productive and hard working. Even when they had to deal with rough kids who needed discipline, everything was out of love and caring for that particular student. Joining a group or club is an especially good choice if you are needing to come out your shell and enjoy yourself in the high school scene.
