Gahanna Reviews

I have lived in Gahanna Ohio for approximately 23 years of my life. I enjoy Gahanna because I am diagnosed with high functioning autism and I had the opportunity to attend and graduate from a public school Lincoln High School in Gahanna, Ohio.

Being on the autism spectrum, some people did not take the time to know me nor did they attempt to understand or accept me.

A mentorship program was developed within the school system. This allowed me to develop friendships and relationships with classmates who really accepted me and wanted to be my true friend.

I have been given the opportunity to participate in the PSEO program, and I did receive several credits before I left high school. I received an associates degree from ITT Technical Institute. However in September of 2015, ITT suddenly closed.
