Gadsden High School Reviews
If you have a child about to attend this school MOVE AWAY!
Horrible school to attend if you're not Hispanic. Blatant racism from faculty, staff, and of course other students in the guise of "reverse racism". Sorry to say there's no such thing. Racism is just racism.
I attended this school for 4 years and graduated with a 3.5 after flat out refusing to do any homework at home and completing it all during my lunch breaks or while on the bus. I was in "honors" classes and even got as high as an AP Biology class with this attitude at this horrible institution parading as a school.
Let's not forget the lock-downs due to threats of 'drive bys' and the school arguing with my mom when she came to pick me up. The principal who thought he worked for a different school, and spelled the name Gasden instead of GaDsden. Or the students I know that married their teachers.
I was in the band and the funding for the arts and sciences was atrocious. My dad went to the school 25 years earlier and said he thought the band uniforms were the same. We won a few awards with the band while using our 25 y/o equipment yet our last place shut out season football team got new uniforms every single year.
While attending Gadsden High School, I always wondered if our school was really as negative as others pictured it to be. . . having the opportunity to work and be part of other districts from other states...I can say Gadsden Is The BEST!!! Gadsden embraces diversity, advocates for students as individuals and provides opportunities not found in other "financially" superior schools. Gadsden may not have all the cool technology and gadgets, but it is one of the best school districts I have been (proud to say) a part off. Teachers at Gadsden ARE ABLE to make a difference.
Mascot is the Panthers. school colors are maroon and gold. Haunted old english building. Great ROTC team.
