    My son came from a private school to GPHS. The quality of the school staff and children that attend here are leaps and bounds above any public school and a nice transition from what we we were accustomed to at his private school. Great school!

    Great school. Students and teacher are nice polite and mannered. No obvious behavior issues. Clean school and office staff is mature and comforting as well as helpful.

    My son started at GPHS the first year it was open as a Freshman experiencing both academic and social success. He participates in the renowned Marine JROTC program that encompasses 3 high schools. The academic atmosphere is phenomenal -- it seems at times more like a community college than a HS. Students are involved in decision making and have a real feeling of ownership. Discipline is excellent and problems are few. Recently when my son was ill he didn't want to stay home! There is a good balance at the school between academic and social success. Athletes are encouraged to excess but not at the cost of their academics. Recently for homecoming students were nominated from several various groups throughout the school providing more diversity for the student body to select their King and Queen. We attend out of district & are moving to the area because of GHPS.
