I am making friends who are helping me when I don’t understand things. The teachers are helping with all my questions. I do ask the teachers a lot of questions. There is a lot of homework but I am asking my dorm friends to help me out. After homework I get to go out and play basketball on the outside court. That is fun.

I really enjoyed my time at Gilbert! I was able to participate in a lot of extracurricular activities, especially in the Music Department. The teachers at the school are really nice and supportive. They are always willing to stay after school and help us. The class size is small so the teachers can pay individual attention to the students. The school also offers many AP classes and has a local college partnership where we can take college classes with no additional cost. I really thank all the faulty and staff at Gilbert. They truly made a difference in my life.
