Henry M. Gunn High School Reviews

By , a Former Student on

Wonderful Wonderful Wonderful!!! Why has no one written a review on this school yet? This school is a great high school with amazing teachers and hard working pleasant students, I should know I graduated in 05'. Most of the students here go off to have amazing careers because Gunn truly preps you for college and the outside world. There is no bad crowd to fall into at Gunn unlike its sister school Palo Alto High which has some seedy crowds. I wish I could give this school 10 stars because they would really deserve it. People come from all over the Bay to put their children in Gunn. This school is all around amazing!
