The school has top of the line facilities. Each student is issued a laptop with tons of software including adobe, Microsoft, autodesk, and more. Every classroom has smart boards and projectors. The school is well kept and clean. The school offers many AP classes and an internship program. The school offers many electives, so every student can take classes that they are interested in. The rigor of the school makes GSMST students the most college ready. The teachers are well qualified and trained. While there are no official sports, the school makes up for it with the intermurals club and other extracurriculars. From the gay-straight alliance, to science Olympiad, to Recycling club, there is something for everybody. The food is standard, but there are vending machines. The administration is receptive to the needs of parents and students and strive to make the school as great as possible. Overall, GSMST is a wonderful school that has something for everybody who is willing to work hard.

Overall, the vast academic opportunities GSMST provides far outweigh the negatives, but a large issue throughout the school is the stress caused by large workloads. As a student, I've found that I really enjoy classes where my teachers periodically incorporate stress-relieving activities into our day. For example, every Friday in German, classes have about fifteen minutes of yoga before beginning instruction. This helps keep everyone focused and enjoy their school experience more. Another class I've enjoyed because of this is World Studies, where the entire class will participate in a round of Just Dance on days when the teacher has decided we need a short mental health break. I believe if more teachers started incorporating short activities like these into their weekly or monthly class plans, it would drastically improve the experience of GSMST students, as well as their mental health.
I am part of the Class of 2016 at GSMST. I really loved my experience there. The diversity is great, allowing me to make friends with all different ethnicities. In terms of academics, it is definitely the best in the county. The classes were challenging but rewarding. Teachers tried their best to get students excited about learning. There were also programs such as the Junior Fellowship Experience that set students up with an internship their third year at the school. Although there is a lack of sports there, GSMST really prepares students, who are serious about their education, for a good college.
