This school has an excellent JROTC program. The teachers in charge really care about the kids and have a great impact on shaping them into mature, responsible young people.
Gibbs High School is a wonderful school. It offers great opportunities in technology. The technology at the school is the most advanced i have seen. Gibbs offers two magnet programs that are great for kids who are interested in business and arts. Both programs keep the students focused on their area of study of choice. I would highly reccomend the academic programs at this school.
This is possible the worst school year I've had to deal with. My Son's English teacher left school and lost all of the classes paper work. Now he has an F in this class and will be unable to graduate this Senior year. He is unable to resolve this matter and no one is returning phone calls.
I studied at Gibbs High School during the school year 2001-2002. Now I am back in my country. Thanks to you all and the ESOL teacher Dr. Robson, now I can talk and write english. You have benn a great part of my life as student. I will never forget all of the personal and staff that works there. Thanks for all.
I would have to say that Gibbs is a good school considering the vast variety of students attending. The arts programs brings in alot of smart, very artistic students. I am not a parent, but a 1997 grad of Gibbs. I think they made a pretty bad decision having PCCA at Gibbs. I was involved in a magnet program as well, International Baccuralate (which is normally at St. Pete high but they had too many accepted students and had pre-IB programs at several schools.) It was myself and 6 others at Gibbs in the program. I am a supporter of Gibbs, and feel that it is a good school compared to some of the storys I have heard of other schools, and now that I live in NY I am glad I attended Gibbs and not one of the schools here.
I am a student at Gibbs high and love it! i love the diverse community and people who surround me. However, I feel it is necessary to say that almost the entire student body is very unhappy with the school leadership. Some things need to change, but not all of the schools ideals, traditions, and activities.
My child is a senior at Gibbs High School.The teaching staff in the GAP program is excellent. They go beyond any teaching staff I have come across. My son went to elementary school in Ohio had poor grades. When I moved here he started middle school here and his grades improved and now that he is in Gibbs he has done excellent. I do not understand why this school has a C it should be an A or B School.
I have had four children feed through Gibbs and they have all loved it. The crowd is very diverse and the magnet programs in arts and technology are unbeatable. There has never been much crime or scandal at this school. Many white folk are turned off by this school, because it is in the middle of a primarily African-American neighborhood. This school is the breeding ground for race relations for the next generation; especially with the new 'choice program'. My children attended this school and so did I. Gibbs High School may change faces(they are rebuilding the entire school this year) but its mission as a groundbreaking school will remain.
