I can't say enough good things about Geneva High School. I've had one child graduate and currently have one child enrolled and I am continually impressed with the teachers, administration, academics, opportunities available to students, and students themselves. My child who graduated was more than adequately prepared for college and found the transition very easy. If your child wants to be challenged, the opportunities are there at GHS.

To be honest, I hated this school. I only stayed for 2 years because I couldn't stand it. Students are very clique-y and downright disrespectful towards one another. Despite complaints to those in positions of authority, nothing was done to try to combat bullying. The teachers were fine, but some have no compassion or motivation. There were a couple teachers who were absolutely fantastic and made students look forward to coming the next day. Classes were ridiculously easy for the most part, unless you took honors or AP. Overall, the staff was fine, but the students need attitude adjustments.

It was full of teachers who loved to teach and were available to help students achieve goals.

Outstanding School. Being a strong advocate of Catholic Schools, I would have never thought a public school education could rival that of a private school. We have been completely satisfied with our child's high school experience.

Geneva has good teachers and even some excellent ones. The equipment for academics and athletics is in great shape. Still, the homogeneity of the student and body and the teaching staff can be stifling to ethnic/ racial minorities or someone of lower socioeconomic standing. The social atmosphere is not conducive to creativity or self-expression, and the cliquey nature of the student body is very tough on new kids.

GHS Rocks!! I'm a Sophomore there and trust me there is no better place to go to school. It's everything you would expect from a small town school, the community rallys behind the foot ball team (epically now that we're UNDEFEATED!) the spring musical, is top of the off-Broadway line and usually opens to a full house. There's a teacher and extra cric. active for everyone, but most importantly of all everyone is so tightly bonded with each other and no one ever feels like they don't belong anywhere. GHS is the best school in the district. GO VIKING!!!!

GHS is amazing!! I love it here and wouldnt go to any other high school. Im a soph. and i love it. The students are great to be around and the teachers are there for everyone. If anyone needs help or ANYTHING they are always there to help. The school activities are the bomb and the coaches are there to help. The sports and music boosters are doing very well from parents who are awesome and very involved. Geneva is a great place to live and the schools are just outstanding. This is the place where excellence isnt just a thing, its an acheivement that happens. -class of 2009

GHS has been good so far. I have 2 kids in there and am willing to stay in Geneve so my youngest can attend schools here.

GHS has continued to offer a rich curriculum to all students. Teachers and community involvement and support is exceptional. Compared with the expensive and prestigious private, college prep schools or parochial schools, I do not think I could find a better school for my children.

I graduated from GHS in 2001 and currently attend the University of Georgia while pursuing an English Education degree. I loved GHS while I was there and am surprising myself as I keep thinking about returning there to live and possibly teach when I finish here.

I am a junior at Geneva and I am in love with it. I couldn't have asked for a better school or better teachers and staff. Every high school has it's problems but we are united to fix them all.

Geneva Community High School is balanced and well rounded. The school is blessed with a strong administration and dedicated faculty of excellent teachers. Our four children graduated from GHS over the last ten years and went on to have great academic success at state universities in Illinois. The balance between academics and extra curricular opportunity made for a well rounded experience. The community is very supportive of it's high school and the traditions it deeply values. We found that Geneva High School was engaging and challenged our children without the over emphasis on standardized testing and winning at all costs. Is it perfect? No, but on balance it's a great value and one that exceeded our expectations when we moved to the Chicago area several years ago. Our adult remained connected and continue to value their high school experience in Geneva.
