  • My experience at Garinger, as with any situation had it's highs and lows. Thankfully, I experienced more highs than lows. Any experience is what you make it and my friends, the staff, and myself made it a fun filled experience. The staff was fairly great. I ran into some very unique teachers, but they all gave me guidence and info for success. The students lacked motivation. I was a cheerleader, and while I must admit the football team was less than abject, our school had lots of school spirit which made sporting events fun! Band is one of the biggest extracurriculars. The classrooms are being improved; we currently have about 3 smart rooms. Homework was a challenge for me because that is what I wanted. Some students aren't motivated and wish to slack off and this is what teachers allow them to do. While there were negatives, my overall experience was a very positive one. I met people that had great impacts on my life!

  • Hi I go to Leadership and Public Service at Garinger High School. The reason I give this school an F as the school grade is because of how all the students act at the school. They give the teacher no respect. They are so rude! I can't even learn anything in any of my classes because I get distracted a lot! And can't concentrate on my work when students are talking around me. I'm just very sorry! My dream was to go to Independence High School. And I really want that dream to come true!
    Please transfer me to that school please!
    I beg you!
    I would do anything for you to transfer me to Independence High School! please!
    Thank you for listening to my feelings and thoughts!
    I HOPE THAT YOU WOULD AGREE WITH ME AND SEND ME TO INDEPENDENCE HIGH SCHOOL!
    MAY GOD BLESS YOU ALL!
    ONCE AGAIN THANK YOU!
