I am currently a freshman at South Gibson County high school. Though I have only been in attendance for a year, i believe i have a very good understanding of the school and environment. SGC’s academics are much more advanced than some surrounding schools, their academics are outstanding compared to others. The facilities are mostly clean. The faculty and staff members are very approachable and helpful. They are involved with their students and help them grow. There are clubs and groups for about anything you can think of! It’s very welcoming and warm! SGC is very involved with sports such as football, basketball, soccer, volleyball, and band. The music program could be improved.

As a student at South Gibson, I feel that I have been given opportunities that would not have been available at other public schools. For example, each freshman class gets to take a field trip to an obstacle course focused on team work. The ACES course brings the whole grade together and gives us a fun day away. Also, we are given multiple practice ACT tests and post-secondary opportunities. The teachers truly care about us and want to see their students succeed. If I could change one thing about SGC it would be the size of the student body. I came to Medina when I was six years old. Then, I could tell you the name of every student that walked the halls of the elementary school. Now the class of 2022 consists of 200 plus students! Our little town has blossomed quickly. Ultimately, I wish all of us could be closer because we only have a few years left. I will always be in debt to South Gibson for the lessons I have learned and the friendships I have been given.
I feel like South Gibson County really offered a lot of opportunity for students to get a head start on college. They offered multiple AP classes along with dual enrollment classes. I also felt like the teaching staff at South Gibson was very advanced as well. Many of the teachers I had were very qualified in the information they were teaching. Also, South Gibson offered ways for students to get a head start in their career. South Gibson offers classes like Clinical Internship and Nursing Education which allowed students to leave during the last block of the day and head to either a nursing home or some other form of medical clinic to shadow and learn about the career they are wanting to pursue.
