I came to this school last year and the teaching hasn't been of expectations for me I don't think Gilford High is a great school either. The extra curriculums need to be fixed, they do no offer what they say the actually do. The teachers are very nice. Hats off to them. =D

The school is neat, very well organized but as far as the teachers go some of them are very judgemental and make the kids feel like they have to fit in to go the Gilford. School is suppose to be fun not overwhelming.
