    I think that Gaffney High has found a good way for kids to lean. There is more technology involved. I really like it here. They are doing a wonderful job on helping me pass the high school and moving on into college.

    Gaffney High is something to be proud of my mother graduated from there I graduated from there and nest year my daughter will graduate from there. It is a great school and has a lot to offer. Also it won Palmetto's Finest this year. My daughter can't wait to get to school everyday. How many parents can say that.

    This high school should be an example to all schools across the country. Its the way schools were back when I was going strong and stable. I can send my child to school each morning with the comfort of knowing she is safe & will get a wonderful education.
