All of the teachers make sure that the students understand the material. They have after school tutoring and even Saturday school for all the students to help them even more. The teachers are friendly as well. Although they take our education seriously, they are able to sometimes make jokes in class and laugh with us. In class, they try to make the learning as simple and understandable. It is sometimes even fun! The teachers are great!

GECHS offers a great program, which is receiving an Associates Degree before High School Dimploma. It is all about how you make it. If you are involved with the little amount of club/organizations, well then it will be fun. But if you don't get involved, then of course, high school won the be fun for you. Sometimes the staff can be unorganized, but majority of the time they are on top of their stuff. The only thing I hated was that they don't have sport. Of course you can play for your home school, but I really wish this school had sports.
I enjoyed my four years at Garza because I was able to make amazing connections with great people like my friends and teachers. It is a great opportunity for young teenagers to get FREE college preparation and a FREE degree. I graduated with my associates degree in science this past May 2017, and I am now on course to graduating early from nursing school. It is definitely worth the work.
