This school has gone downhill. Everything is wrong and if your not a football player or cheerleader, you dont mean anything.
Because of their sports program .. They have the best football team ever
I was a student at GCHS last year. I had a great year overall. Most of the teachers were helpful and students seemed to be easy to get along with. Thanks to Officer Kyle Helton who made it a safe school and always offered words of encouragement. Now that I have moved away, I miss GCHS and would move back. I definitely give this school an A for effort and an A for supporting students. Unfortunately the only drawback was 'The Diploma in Every Hand' wasn't necessarily true. Other than that it was an awesome place to share a year.
Out daughter has attended for over a year, and we have mixed feelings about Giles County HS. Our daughter was not in a college prep track so some of these comments will relate to specific courses she took. The school seems to have a pretty good range of classes, including some computer classes and a cosmotology dept. There is no gymnastics program, or classes in this area. The teachers overall seem pretty average: some pretty good, and some just OK. We had some problems with the guidance counselors, getting graduation requirements, credits, and schedules straightened out. The principal seems somewhat laid back, as opposed to fired up and motivating his teachers. The academic expectations seemed fairly low compared to schools we've known in other states. Overall, I'd say it's a decent school, but not outstanding.
