  • As a graduate (class of '79) of G.H.S. and as a parent I believe that our schools are being run by the teachers union. I was blessed to have many fine teachers ie. Mr. Tipps, Mrs Sullivan, and Mr. Ward. The union is more interested in keeping teachers in place whether they are qualified or not. Throwing money at a problem does NOT automatically gaurantee a solution to lower test scores. My children strive to be excellent students and I stay involved in all aspects of their school life including academics, extra curricular activities as well as their social life. I was fortunate to have so many great educators but I am aware of many poor teachers and guidance counselors that were kept in place soley because they had only a few more years to retirement.
    One only has to read the review submitted March 13, 2009 to understand my view point. Misspellings, poor use of grammar in the age of spell check and the inability to use proper punctuation clearly shows this student is a prime example of my argument.

  • First of aLL CONCERNED GRAND PARENT YOU THINK THAT OUR schl is living in the lap of luxury... we have teachers being layed off and our classes keep getting bigger. We don't have the money to do real labs and we NEVER go on field trips anymore. Quebec is something hte family has to pay for, not the school or the tax payers!!!!! This is an optional trip for French students not a mandatory trip. We have some of the worst state test grades in the state so, yes it is a requirement for the community to invest in the student's... for everyon's sake. I'm not saying money's not wasted (eg athleticdirector getting paid 140k a year) but we surely aren't frittering it away. I f you look at what we get in STATE AID you'll see it's much higher than say Canandaguia... because we aren't all middle class families in Geneva. Geneva offers aid with breakfast and lunch so our kids can eat for free!!!! So Grandparent, this is from a student from Geneva Ny, I want to tell you we ARE Not BEING spoiled what so ever, in fact we rarly do anything other that tkae notes off of an out-of-date projector or share a textbook to do an assignment. Please stop thinking about yourself and think about investing in our future, the chinese are doing that and quickly becoming one of the most if not themost advanced natons in the world... while were getting dumber and less significant due to people compaining about the present and not thinking about the future

  • GHS is a wonderfully diverse setting in which to get a very competitive and well-rounded education.
