Very involved and caring principle and teachers. I've called the principle several times about minor concerns which he responded to right away. Teachers are organized and work to get students involved in extracurricular activities as well. Are continually working to improve.

GFW is good for a public school. The bullying isn't very bad, and the teachers are very good at what they do, but it isn't a good fit for some students. -submitted by a student

Way too much bullying, and when you ask the counselor or the principal for help, they don't do anything. I was bullied here a couple of years ago, before a switched schools, and the worst punishment any of my bullies ever got was having to eat lunch in the office for a week. No detention or calls to their parents. On top of that,incompetent teachers that can't teach.

I think that this school is one of the greatest schools in the world. The teachers are by far the greatest in the universe.

Yes, I would recommend some people to attend this school but not everyone. People who aren't motivated to work should attend this school. GFW is a pretty fair school with good test scores, but when are you going to use half the stuff they teach in real life? One of the things they are very against is voicing your own opinions. Parents can openly voice their opinions but for students it is abruptly discouraged and ignored. I wouldn't reccommend going here if you are opinionated.
