There isn't a school in this entire area (and that includes northeast Tennessee) that I would rather send my son to. GCHS is small enough to give personalized attention to parents and students. The staff is available to meet with any parent for consulation, and, believe it or not, their focus isn't just 'sports'. Although, a child learns many of life's lessons while participating in team activities.
Well, I have to say that I love this school and I love Mr. Fleming and Mr. Lake! They are the best teachers I have ever had and they make it feel like a family more than just a class. I This is Ashley Miller and I am a band geek and I am so proud of it!!!!!
Gate City is too much into sports. They hardly care about any other organization such as One Act Play, Forensics, Band and Chorus. They aren't given much recognition at all. Junior Civitan is long oldest club at Gate City and they dont get any recognition at all. If Gate City would get there minds off sports for two seconds it might actually be a good school. Students that don't play sports should get some recognition as well.
