I graduated from Gig Harbor High School this year and I am grateful for the experience. I transferred from a private high school after my first year for financial reasons, and I was worried that public school would terrible. I am happy to say that I actually liked attending GHHS better than my old school. I feel totally prepared for college. I took advantage of honors and AP classes (lots of options to choose from), and the teachers in these programs were excellent. They challenged us and taught us critical thinking skills. My AP scores allowed me to start college as a sophomore and I thank my dedicated teachers for that. I also found several activities to be involved in, like cross county and the debate team. Both of those programs are excellent, no-cut, and have terrific coaches. Like the person before me said, I was kind of intimidated at first because I'm kind of nerdy and shy and I was worried about cliques, but I found that there really is a place for everyone there...you just have to jump in with both feet, get involved, and keep a positive attitude and soon you'll feel right at home. I am thankful for the education I got here and I'm proud to be a Tide!

As a parent, The total lack of leadership is the most frustrating...there is no leadership..Parental input is not only discouraged /ignored it is penalized. Incident after incident is mishandled at every level..math program is still very weak..Sport teams are very political..the majority of kids that give the teams a try walk away feeling inadequate.....quality of programs..some good ..most well below what would be expected at this size of a school that has the tax base it has to draw from. Given the opportunity I would without hesitation send my child elsewhere.

I'm another former student of GHHS and I'm now a sophomore at the University of Washington. For the most part, I had a very positive experience at this school. However, I think that there should be some major changes in the curriculum to better prepare students for college. Watch out - the math program at this school sucks! I went all the way through caculus (the furthest you could go), but I can't apply what I learned to anything. From what I've heard, other GHHS students have struggled with this as well. They also do not give their students finals. Yes, this seems great when you're a high school student, but it's a rough awakening in college. The athletic programs are mostly fantastic (XC, Volleyball, Track, Soccer, Football), however, there are the occasional horrendous coaches that the district has refused to let go after multiple problems (Girls Bball) . The sports can be very political as well. Good school, but like any other it has its positives and negatives.
