    I enjoy the atmosphere and the classes. It is surprisingly relaxing. It's usually pretty quiet. Of course, my classes are at night, so that might have something to do with it.

    I love this school because of the teachers as well as the students. Every person I have met so far has been no less than awesome. All the students vary from age to backgrounds, each with their own impressive personalities. The teachers are tough, but understanding of your needs. They expect nothing less than excellence from you, which may deter some people. But with as much as this school provides for you academically, excelling at all that you do just comes so naturally.

    The students and faculty are very nice, and point new students any where they need to go, even though they have maps all over the school.

    The atmosphere is unique, but it lacks one thing, student initiative. Most students want to leave school as soon as possible and yet they at times blame the school or the teachers for their poor grades. Unless one takes advantage of the great resources that GCC has to offer, then one will truly succeed. For instance if you are struggling in chemistry, they have a chemistry guided aid group called the Chemistry Solutions, same goes for math, writing, economics, computer tech, etc.
