My daughter graduated in 2013 with honors, top 10% of class of 500. Self-motivated and made her own way at GHS. No real college guidance from school but earned full scholarship at top tier school. Faculty seems to operate on survival mode. Many privileges associated with the high school experience are lost because students don't know how to act.
This school is what you make of it. My daughter worked hard and received a great education and 24 hours college credit. The teachers were very hard working, caring people, and the staff members were very helpful.
Worst School In Memphis Staff Very Rude , hide a lot of info if it was known to the public they'll put them on the news like southwind.
Germantown High School, located in Germantown, Tn is NOT A FAIRY TAIL School!! When It Comes To Academics , Germantown Is a Good School , but many teachers and stafff place Germantown at risk for being the best school. Today , my child was in the office sick and needed to call home. She asked the Lady in the office if she could have an excuse note back to class , and the lady told my daughter "No , Leave me alone. I am on my Lunch Break". I found that comment very disrespectful and Rude!!!! There hast been many cases similar to ehat happened to my daughter. I am very disappointed in Germantown High School !!
Great awesome school to go to and i like theadvisory schedule. Again, a really good school the teachers are very understanding
This school has something for every student. The IB program is great for the very academic. The fine arts, drama and production/TV station are all superb. Solid vocational classes available as well. Great sports teams and band too. The healthy diversity of the students keeps GHS from being too "cliquish". The overall atmosphere is vibrant, but relaxed and content. All schools have issues, but our kids feel safe and happy here. We are very pleased with our children's experience.
The IB program is rigorous & challenging & the teachers are inspired, dedicated, & hard-working. My son is pleased that he made the switch from private to this public school. The fine arts program is exceptional. GHS has great school spirit, excellent teachers, strong leadership, and excellent academics.
This is an excellent school. Not only has a great program (International Baccalaureate), but also has a great band. The band director Mr. Byrd is strict to his students. I feel that my child will have a good learning experience there. They care more about students learning than money. All band members including freshmen are audited to the band, and they charge very reasonable band fees. Germantown High School is great! It is getting better and better...
Germantown High is a great school! It is getting better since Southwind High School was built in 2007. The school office stuffs are very friendly and helpful. Principal Mr. McIntyre is very involved in student activities. It offers International Baccalaureate (IB) program that best prepares students for the college. I would get it 10/10!
This school is perfect. They display excellent leadership skills for students and they have an array of activities and and extra-curriculars to get involved in.
Great School, I have 2 enrolled, both are very active and enjoy school. Mr Mac (principal) is very involved, knows the students by name, and is at nearly all after school events. This is a great school for the arts, has an awesome band, and is IB
Great School! I love it! Mr Mac is a great principal who really cares about all of his students. I am a senior and have loved my entire experience here at Gtown! Go RedDevils!
It's a wonderful school! It's really clique-free, the academies is wonderful and our extracurricular programs are amazing. We're all just part of the same group and the school environment is great. Also, walking around an open campus is awesome!
I have three children that have attended Germantown High School. It is an excellent school with wonderful Administration/Teachers/Counselors. My oldest son graduated in 2004 and went on to graduate from college Magna Cum Laude. I feel that his teachers at GHS prepared him to achieve that goal. He has now decided to attend Graduate school and become a teacher. My daughter graduated in 2007 and again I feel that her experience at GHS prepared her for college. My youngest daughter is currently a sophomore at GHS and is enrolled in the IB program. Every thing about GHS has been a positive experience for my children.
I give Germantown High a 10 ! The administration is wonderful, always open to the parents. The teachers are the best around. They care and go the extra mile for the students.
The environemnt is very friendly and open amongst the students. I, myself, am in the IB program, and it is quite rigorous. The teachers, for the most part, are able to teach in either a traditional or hands-on way. The Fine Arts department is amazing, and helpin to prepare students for their life after high school whether it be in the arts or not. There are very few fights, and the surrounding community is always reaching a helping hand towards the school.
I am about to graduate in May of 2009, and all four years that I spent at Germantown high have been the best. The school offers so many programs in which us students can excel and tons of extracuricular activites (sports and clubs). The school allows the students to make thier own decisions when it comes to picking class schedules. The school is also set up like a college campus so students can be prepared for college. The teachers are excellent and are really passionate about the subjects they teach. Overall Germantown High is a great school that prepares students for college and vocational schools.
May 2008 My son is a freshman at Germantown High. He loves the school. The teachers are wonderful and very caring. The office staff is very kind every time you walk in the doors of Germantown High. This school is on the way upward. I graduated from Germantown in 1982, and was a little hesitate for my child to go there. A wonderful school. I am very high on Germantown High!
