    GWCHS made me realize the importance of friendship and it's still sad that I had to leave. -TaylorCarnes

    The attitudes of some of the students is pretty bad. Hard to make friends. It can get lonesome. I wouldn't consider the school a friendly environment because of the students.

    Thank you for the ROTC program! The best thing to happen in any IPS school. Congratulations on offering it while many public schools don't. I also don't believe any 'magnet' schools do either. Thank You! Barbara Contreras
