This school is great, but the system and program is not. Specifically, the A and B block classes. I personally do not like them. I think because those classes are block periods, the teachers think they can stuff our brains with material in those 2 hours. And of course, assign never ending homework. I am currently a freshman and am waiting for the year to be over. It is overwhelming and my grades were not so good first semester. Half my time I am finishing homework for one of those classes everyday. It is either L.A or chemistry. I really do not like it, and I think that this A and B day block schedule should end. Students should have every class every day. Other than that, this is truly a great school.
Amazing!! Great High school. Yes, it is not for everyone! you have to be driven to learn and wants to be success. You need to study average of 3-4 hours a day.
This school is amazing. The students are so driven to learn and the faculty is so willing to aid in our success. It's a decent-sized workload, greater than your average high school, but the benefits greatly outweigh the disadvantages. Don't get me wrong, though. This school is fun, too. The biggest mistake I made going into this school was thinking it wasn't enjoyable at all. Almost immediately, you'll establish close relationships with students and teachers. After school a lot of people walk to restaurants near by to hang out and eat, or just talk. Classes seem to be a bit more lenient than an average high school, however that may just be my freshman classes. It's still up to you, however, to maintain your grades and agenda. The first year you're here, you'll take a Language Arts class, a Chemistry class, a Physics & Engineering class [abbreviated as PhysEng (fizz-enj)], a foreign language class (either German, Spanish, or Chinese), a math class (either Accelerated Algebra, Accelerated Geometry, or 1 semester Geometry, and 1 semester Pre-Calc.), and an elective. I love this school overall, and I never plan to leave. I hope you feel the same!
I LOVE this school! I am currently a freshman and I believe that GSMST is the school for me! It is not too big but not too small, it is the perfect size for people coming from both private and public schools. There is a somewhat "family" type of relationship between everyone. There are many fun activities and al lot of times, educational activities that GSMST supports are the Best, such as robotics which have gone to nationals twice in a row and the streak is continuing. There is a lot of work required but overall if you put in your work, the experience that you get out of it is absolutely worth it and worthwhile. I know that GSMST is making and will make me someone with high levels of intelligence, critical thinking, and responsibility. I cannot explain my feelings about GSMST other than: I LOVEEEEE IT! I also love how we are so electronically based that each student receives a laptop! :) THANKS GSMST! I LOVE YOUUU!
I love this school . I am a student here. The students and faculty are the most accepting out of all the schools i have been to. And the amount of learning we do here is great. We really do focus on our studies. We have many student leadership programs. We also have a great internship program and a coordinator that can get us any internship we want. It is amazing.
An amazing school that provides opportunities well beyond the average high school. It is not for everyone, however.
