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.
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 !!
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!
