School Reviews

The School is great and where it is a smaller school it is way easier for kids to get help and learn and a lot of very good down to earth people that would give you the shirt off of their back if you needed it. So glad I could finish my High school edu. here

I went to Garden High School Near Oakwood VA During the 1950s. It used to be a fine school. What has happened to schools in that Area. Actually I say no because of what i see on the internet.

This high school is terrible many of the teachers only care about recieving their paycheck. There are several teachers who will not answer students questions and because of this many students do poorly in their class. Plus, some of the teachers belittle students in front of the entire class instead of trying to inspire them.
