The open campus helps watch over kids and give kids freedom to have space to move around during lunch and passing periods.

I have been completely happy with the education my daughter is receiving at GVHS. Working from home during the COVID pandemic has allowed me to see how hard each of the teachers have worked to promote student success.

School seems to be filled with staff that don't really care about the students.

All around rude staff and teachers. They think they are untouchable and can say and do whatever they want. They treat the students as inconveniences and like to create a lot of weird unnecessary rules just so kids can break them and they can punish them harshly.
