Niche User: Gilmer High School was an amazing school to attend. Great quality of education, fun pep rallies, kind teachers and coaches, and a variety of activities to choose from. I honestly miss it a lot, but I am proud to say that I graduated from Gilmer High School! The only changes I would recommend would be to raise additional money for the Theatre department so their props and clothing can be more beneficial in the plays, and to hire more teachers who actually enjoy teaching the students. Some teachers would give out worksheets and a book everyday, expecting students to learn that way. Instead, students should be taught the material and enjoy learning throughout high school. In my opinion, this will increase the chances of high school students graduating and becoming accepted into higher education. Overall, I love Gilmer High School!! Class of 2017.

Roanoke Catholic School

Senior: Roanoke Catholic is a school that teaches students belong the classroom and prepares them for either college. In the past years, 100 percent of Catholic seniors have attended college and this year the seniors have received over 2.5 million in scholarships. I started Roanoke Catholic two years ago and it was a big change coming from public school. In public schools you could slide by without doing your homework, but at Roanoke Catholic all work is required and graded as a test grade. Roanoke Catholic does not let you fall through the cracks. I also must say the food is outstanding!!
One thing I really did not like were the uniforms. In public school you basically wore what you want, but not in private school. My first year the gentlemen had to wear a shirt and tie during the winter and in the summer a polo shirt with the school’s logo and khaki pants or shorts. This year they changed the dress code to where gentlemen could wear the polo shirt and khaki pants all year around.

Niche User: Union Grove High School is one of the best schools in East Texas. Every part of the school is wonderful. The students, teachers, and staff there are all like a big family. It is one of the smallest schools in the area, but that is a part of why the school is so great. You get a chance to get to know everyone, and you may not know everything about everyone but you do know everyone's names. All the teachers care about their students and love to help them understand their work. The staff help you the best they can at all times. Overall I would say it is the best school in East Texas.
