At Mount Gilead High School you will find teachers that really want to help each child. You will also find a top notch arts program for this size school, though it is unclear whether it will remain with budget cuts. Also worth noting that through my experience at Mount Gilead I have noticed no signs of bullying. It may be in the middle of nowhere, but you can be assured that a child will be safe and well educated at this school.
