I am a part of the first graduating class of GTECHS, and while it is definitely a work in progress, it is an amazing school that gives students opportunities that they may never get otherwise. Each grade is a class of around 60 students (give or take depending on siblings that apply). Students have the opportunity to earn their associate's degree at the same time as their high school diploma, and will actually walk for the college before their own high school. The staff does their best for each and every student, and works hard to find the best teachers they can. Mr. Jordan, Ms. Scruggs, and Mrs. Glover are some of the best teachers I''ve ever had. There aren''t really extracurricular in the normal public school sense, but each teacher sponsors a small club, such as DIY or Game Theory. We do not have a band, nor a sports team because we focus more on the academic side of high school.
