I believe Gilbert is a great school! The teachers care about the students and spend extra time and money on them. You can walk through the hall without hearning cursing and Mr. Dean works hard to keep it that way.

I love Gilbert but I feel the students could be taught more on matters of respect. WE have a limited but great sports program but not much in other areas of extra curricular such as the arts, travel,and other sports such as golf and archery. Discipline seems to be tightening and that's wonderful..... all and all you can get a good education at Gilbert but not much preparation for life.

I am pretty satisfied with this high school. I do think disipline should be harder. I think Mr. Justice is a nice man. And I really think Mr. Murphy is good for the kids. Mr. White is also a great counsler who takes time out to help each one. The school has good sports. And supports each sport. Kids into sports need a little less hassel. They have to go to their lockers or pass through the cafeteria going home after sports practice. Give them a break!
