Garber High School Ratings & Reviews
I went to Garber in the 1970's. I thought it was painfully cliquey. The academics were awesome. It seems back then we were required to read a lot more classic books than my own sophomore Garber student. I am glad that there are more required science classes now and that study hall (SEMINAR as it its now called) is required.
I am a current Garber student, and I would like to state that while it has an excellent academic program, it can sometimes be a bit much. The councilors like to say 'We know you have a busy schedule, but...' and push us to do a lot. Community service, sports, performing arts etc...all on top of perhaps a job, family, and friends. Quite a bit. But there are enough nice people to suffer through it with. Teachers are generally amiable, I have been fortunate enough to not run into any grudging, sadistic teachers, and I definitely have my favorites: Dish, Bromberg, and Shannon.
I'm a current student, and i love garber. The teachers are top notch, student involvement is great, and the community support is just as well. The curriculum is very hard, but it proves better for the future if you stay on top of things. The block scheduling is a little hard to get used to, but its easier in the long run. If you're reading this because you're moving in from out of town, you should seriously consider garber. The other schools are just not as good academically.
