Map of Garey High School address.

August 26, 2015
I attended Garey High School for the past 4 years and it had its ups and downs. The teachers are very helpful and truly seem dedicated to their profession, but it is the administration and district school board that seem to be holding the school back. I accredit my success there to the teachers, but not the administration. I finished my time there with a 3.9 gpa and I was accepted into 8 universities and will be enrolling at the University of California at Santa Barbara. Garey has come a long way in the past few years, and with continued development, this can be a truly remarkable school given the resources. There is a strong community of parents that are dedicated to beautifying the school...it is just a shame that the school board may not be lending its total support. I truly believe that under the proper guidance, Garey High School can be one of the better public schools in Southern California.

I graduated From Garey in 2005. And by far I Loved that school! Teachers there like to help students out. Your counselor will help out and let you know what's going on with grades and everything else. Even after I graduated I still will help support the school since my brother then started and he played Football and he also graduated this year 2011. And we still have another brother to go. And yet will still support Garey!

i attended Garey HIgh School after I transfered from Village Academy at Indian Hill. To be honest, i enjoyed my time there than at Village. The teachers are really kind, and your counselors are up to date on how the student is. My counselor used to call me out and explain to me my progress. It meant a lot to me knowing that someone who hardly knew me was interested about my grades and classes.

I've recently moved into this School District, my son has done wonderfully at Garey High. This school has come a long way. He seems to be more interested in class studies at his grades.

Garey High School has been for the last few years on the rise. It is improving academically by leaps and bounds. Unfortunately though, Garey is located in an area that has been plagued by violence, gangs, altercations, etc. Even with all of these distractions, the school has been able to remain strong. The school is jam-packed with an array of programs its students can join. Not just athletics, but various clubs. Its classes pretty much has three levels or categories they are arranged in. There is non-college preparatory classes, then follows the college-prep classes, then finally the AP and honors classes. As for the AP honors classes, they are at a level where students will be challenged. As for the teachers, some care more than others. But the majority that I have encountered have cared deeply for their students academic status and care and wish them well in the future.

Garey high school is a brilliant school. Garey high school has all the requirements that best for your child in other to go to college or universities.. Its academic involves college prep classes in more. Unlike teachers and staff they care about your child best needs.. Teachers don't care when a student is not involve in their class, they care when everything is going all cool.. And students pay more attention in class.. Theres a lot of clubs and a lot of involvement for child needs, it is a great school.. More n more this school academic is growing up in a good way....
