I like the studying atmosphere and the rigor. This is a very ambitious school. The one thing I wish they would improve is their mental health awareness. I also wish that more teachers/counselors could promote identity outside of academic success such as success as an artist, a chef, and/or just a housewife even!

This school is very challenging. While I would consider my intelligence to be above average, there is a huge gap between my level and the smartest students in my grade. There are some teachers who, because some students get higher grades, treat them better than those who are struggling in the class, even if these students study hard. Generally, though, this is not the case. For example, teachers try to make sure that their exams are not all on the same day. I very much appreciate that students' hard work is being recognized and that teachers are helping out by co-scheduling their respective exams.

Sometimes, the stress does get to students. While procrastination among students is definitely a factor in sleep deprivation, it's fair to say that sometimes the workload is just too much. After 7 hours of school and clubs, it is reasonable that students will need to rest. This leaves only a few hours of homework/studying time before the next school day.
One thing I have to admit about GSMST is that there is a very strong culture of academic achievement here. Minimal room is made for non-academic extracurriculars and a lot the focus lies on getting good grades. This creates a very stressful environment for students and fosters a lot of academic competition. With that being said, I find that the high academic expectations does a good job of preparing students for the rigor of not only college but real-life jobs (there are two internship programs designed to prepare students for jobs). Although there is competition between students, there is also a lot of support. The student body is very diverse and most people I've met here are understanding and eager to help you out if needed.
