i definately have to agree with whom ever posted the first comment. almost every student from GHS goes to Blinn...wow! they are guaranteed acceptance there...that's why they all go there. the staff are not all nice people. if you didn't make good grades or understand completely they wouldn't give you the time of day to help you understand. mrs belyeu is one of the only teachers i would say is there for her students. the only thing GHS has going for them is the football team and their band...thats it.

I graduated from Giddings High School in 2007 and I believe that GHS is a great school. The administration and teachers show true leadership and are very friendly. Like all schools (especially small town schools), it has its problems, such as older buildings (though I hear they are planning a new school...), limited financial resources, small town politics.. but, it also has a staff of passionate and qualified individuals who really go the extra mile when students show a willingness and desire to learn. Also, the extra curricular activities there are outstanding in many areas, from athletics, to UIL academics, to even things that typically do not get as much recognition, like clubs, band and art. The community is very supportive of the school and many parents help out as much as possible. I recommend it

GHS is an excellent school. The principals, teachers, and counsleors do an excellent job of getting kids ready for college in an atmosphere that is safe and productive. I am very thankful that my child is a student at Giddings High school.

This school may not be the nicest high school ever, but the teachers are extremely friendly and so is the principal.My daughter goes to school there and loves all her teachers and makes many friends.I went to GHS and graduated from the University of Texas, and so will my daughter since she makes good grades!It depends on the students attitudes that tells whether they will go to college or not, not the teachers.GHS also has a good athletic program.

Giddings High School is a great school. I transferred my child there from another district and it is well worth the money. He was bullied by teachers and students at the other school and now his self-esteem is through the roof. He has been overwhelmed with kindness from teachers, athletic team members, almost everyone. No school is perfect, but I've never seen him happier.

This is a great school and I would recommend your children going because I graduated from their and went to A&M and got my bachelors degree in business now I am getting paid 150,000 dollars a year and the teachers are great so if you ask me i would bring my kids.

This is a pathetic excuse for a high school. I moved to Giddings from a much bigger town and school, and did not learn a single thing in the 4 years there. I went into high school knowing more than most teachers. Take it from me, a former student who had a very hard time fitting in due to differences, if you are moving there, good luck. Most of the townspeople will not accept you or your kid and you both will be social outcasts. The education provided by the GISD is useless unless you do not want to pursue a college career and live the rest of your life working at the sparce occupations. Most students who graduate never attend college, the rest attend Blinn, and that basically amounts to being really lazy and never leaving the town.
