There are no words!! Hime town feel.. Families look out for one another's children. Massive scholarships are awarded to these students every year. I have been blessed to have three children learn and grow with the Gilbert schools .

Gilbert High is a very good school. It finds that happy marriage of appropriately challenging the intelligent/motivated students, yet ensuring that everyone graduates with a broad, solid education that covers all the basics. I am about to graduate college with double major in biology and chemistry and will soon be entering medical school, and I can attest to the quality of the preparation provided at Gilbert. There were few students more prepared than I was for the rigor of some really tough college courses. Gilbert dynamically sets one up for success and refuses to allow failure, and that is what a good high school should do.

Gilbert High School is a great school for any one to go to. The teachers actually care and they make you do your work. The students there are also very nice. They are just caring people.

GHS is a great school! Attending the Gilbert Schools gave me confidence in my education. I attended and graduated from college with an Education degree, and now more than ever I am thankful for my education from Gilbert! Gilbert schools provide a great family environment, and I would recommend the schools to anyone.

I have had a great experience with my child going to this school. The teachers and staff put the students best interest first. I like the idea for college prep classes and keeping the child in school taking these classes instead of early dismissal the senior year. The parents and staff have a great working relationship for the good for the students. The community works hard with the school to show they care about the students and show great interest in the students academic and sports. I am proud to be a part of the Gilbert family.

My son has attended Gilbert schools for the last 9 years. The overall quality of studies is excellent. You are very well informed of all that goes on at the school and if you have any questions you always get answers in a timely manner. As a parent I go to all of the events and meetings at the school. The meetings are very well prepared and the information is of quality grade. I would never take my son away from the Gilbert school district. My opinion is Gilbert is the best their is. Send your child to this school district and find out yourself.
