Gulfport High School is dedicated to raising the standards of education, not only within the state, but on par with the greatest schools in the Nation! I've never considered myself an academic, in fact, I couldn't stand High Shcool! It was boring and I felt the education I was receiving was completely irrelevant and I'd never use it in real life; GHS's transition to Career Academies intends to change that! The Academic Institutes of Gulfport will utilize Project Based Learning and a cohort team of Academic and Technical instructors to provide a relevant education that aligns with a student's chosen career pathway. Furthermore, working with industry partners, our students will have multiple opportunities to receive hands on, real world career experiences to assist them making informed decisions about their future academic and career options. I couldn't be more excited to be apart of this educational experience and I'm confident most kids will leave GHS better prepared for life; academically, technically, socially, personally and professionally. We are going to revolutionize education in MS!

As a graduate and current employee of Gulfport High School, I could not be more proud of the direction in which we are going. Our new Academy model will make learning relevant because students will be solving real world problems in an area in which they are interested. We are pushing our students to push themselves and they are achieving. We are not only making sure that they walk across the stage but that they know what they will do in the years that follow graduation. GHS is a great place to be!

There are over 30 clubs for students to choose from, and each club represents the different talents and interest our students bring to the table.One of the active clubs on campus is the Key Club. The Key Club at Gulfport High is one of the most active Key Clubs in the state. The Key Club members have logged in over 1200 community service hours. Every student has a place at Gulfport High. The students are sincere and genuine, always welcoming new students and helping them find their niche. Academically, Gulfport High prepares students for college by challenging them on a college prepartory level. The senior class of 2012 raised over ten million dollars in scholarships. Gulfport High is a great school and I am proud to be an employee.

My son graduated from GHS and is now very successful. I attribute his success in great part to the challenges he encountered from his very clever and inventive teachers at GHS. Being a gifted student, he often felt that he was "the repository of all knowledge that there was to be had." The teachers and administration at GHS were wise enough to allow him the latitude to push the envelope far enough that he was able to spread his wings, but not far enough to let him fall. Thank you GHS!!!

Gulfport High School is the best high school in Mississippi! The teachers, administrators, and coaches really go above and beyond in working with the students of Gulfport. Thier level of concern for the education and well being of the student is top notch. I have two students who attend GHS and they have so many opportunities in the area of sports, arts, music, and clubs that they would not have at most schools in MS. At the same time they are receiving a strong academic education that will fully prepare them for college. The Common Core Curriculum has stepped up the learning rigor at GHS which will improve their success not just in college but in the real world. Their academy model also has made learning more relevant to my students' interest. My children love coming home and telling me about their day and how much they learn. To hear their level of excitment about learning and how they are pushed to higher standards is truly amazing. I could not be more proud of the direction GHS is going and taking my children. Thank you Gulfport High School. Go Admirals!!

We won't move until the last of my three sons graduates as an Admiral!!! He wouldn't let us! This school and its teachers are amazing! They require excellence and critical thinking. Hence, two of my sons received over $60,000 in scholarships thanks to their academic experiences. Both eldest sons are now enrolled in rigorous coursework for nursing and engineering! And, the arts programs are tops-my middle son was so good in band that he received an additional band scholarship and wasn't required to tryout for the college jazz band. Kudos to this school and staff! cje bleeding orange and blue

Gulfport High is by far the best Mississippi Gulf Coast School.After Hurricane Katrina,our teachers and school leaders made coming back to school such a smooth transition for our kids.Parents are encouraged to be involved as much as possible.As the parent of a child with a learning disability(dyslexia)I know the frustration of dealing with a school that just wants to 'push' your child through the system.GHS teachers have been so supportive and encouraging to my son & after my daughter was diagnosed with postraumatic stress disorder after the storm.This school offers a wide variety of activities and an exemplory academic program.We bought our home based on the availability of this High school for our children.Although no school is without its problems,if I had to do it all over again,I would choose the same school district.

Gulfport High is one of the premier high schools not only in the state but in the country. The quality of the administrative and teaching staff is beyond compare. The teachers will help with any needs of the students and will really prepare the children for life after high school. The atmosphere at the school is great and Gulfport is always at the top when it comes to extracurricular activities. If you are a parent looking for a school that is diverse and equally competitive then this is the place to be. Go Admirals!

Gulfport High School is by far one of the best in the southeast. With close to 2000 students, GHS is fast-paced, yet friendly. The curriculum adheres to national standards, and many graduates choose to pursue further education (i.e. college, university, etc). There is a vast array of promising extracurricular activities for students to participate in (everything from the Babysitter's Club to the National Honor's Society to the Skateboarding Club!). The school is also home to many exceptional teachers and adminstrators. Mr. Myrick is an excellent principal who is always willing to work with students and parents to make GHS even better. Although I will not be attending GHS next year, I will never forget the lasting lessons I learned there! Go Admirals!

I am a Freshman going on o be a sophmore and I have to say to anybody looking for a place for their child to go to school I would have to say the choice should be Gulfport High. Their teachers want you r best work for you to succed in the years to come. Gulfport High is a friendly place and the teachers are so nice. Yes, they might push you to do your best but you will see that every bit of it counts. This year I have done awsome with the help of my teachers. *Heather Mcknight

I feel Gulfport High is a superior school with many opportunities. I've had two daughters there and one graduated with a full scholarship to MSU from her PSAT scores. They both participated in a great club- Team Fusion, which I feel pushed them to excell in grades, leadership skills, and drive to be the best they could be. The teachers are great- dedicated and positive. The advanced and honors classes offer upperclassmen a jump start on college credits.

I am a sophomore at Gulfport High School, and first off I would like to say that I believe this school is far and away the best in the state! We excell in every aspect. For instance: Our English, science, athletics, and especially our math department flourish and our state testing levels are exteremely high, higher than many schools in Mississippi! Our teacher's staff in incredible and they prepare us with information for everything we will need, not only in college, but in our futures as a whole. The students are also friendly and helpful, it is easy to make friends at Gulfport. If you are a parent debating which school to send your child to, Gulfport High is the place. Go Admirals!

Our second son has attended Gulfport High for two years and has had a very successful school years so far. The teachers are outstanding and very helpful to the Special Education child. He now longer needs the Sped services now that he has had the one on one assistance that the teachers of Gulfport High have given him. I can not thank the teachers enough for all their hard work for my child. He will become a successful lifelong learner thanks to the values that they have help instilled in him. Overall the staff at Gulfport High have been excellent in their comment to the students of the school. The many extracurricular activites can spark any students interest. Gulfport High is an excellent school.

My son graduated from Gulfport High in 2000. Gulfport High has an excellent Math Dept. And [the math department] prepared him to suceed in college in a very challenging major. The Math teachers are excellent and do a wonderful job. We always felt the safety and discipline were good. The diverse student body is a real plus and students can always find a place to belong.

I am a freshman at this school, and the teachers are great. They really do their best to help you. We also have a great athletic program. I think that the staff members here are great. Also, we have a variety of choices in the cafeteria. I can't wait till my sophomore year begins, that way my classes will hopefully be tougher. I am in every advanced class that the school has. I am hoping to get scholarships to big colleges. I think that with all the excellent staff members at this school I might get where I want in life.
