  • i dont really like this school the teachers are nice but the classmates tease you if you look different like if youre fat. also they expect you to be cool and do bad stuff like fight and call you a punk if you dont do anything right.they also judge by the way you dress if you have clothes they dont like and other personal things.

  • I used to go here in the 70's. It was the best/coolest school to go to. I leaned a lot and the electives were the coolest. I learned how to play guitar, took poetry, played piano for another one of my classes, was on the newspaper team. They played the radio during study time. OH, they had the best school dances ever! I liked the teachers. We had a juke box in the cafeteria. I miss all the good times. I lost my year books in a fire many years ago (9th grade) and wish I could pay for copies of them. Can I get a miracle? Thanks Gauger, you are the best.

  • Probably one of the best schools there is. Great teachers who all (mostly) really care, especially Ms. Chris and Mrs. Stiltz. I'm in ninth grade now, and I miss Gauger so much!
