My child has been there for almost 2 years and the school has been ok but there has been a few concerns as to some of the teachers. Other than that this far there has not been many issues.
This school is awesome I'm a senior this year now. I will be graduating in 2014. Everyone should now that its a great school to be in. The parts I like about this school is that the teachers are nice and cool. This school improved a lot because of the new principal. He always look out for everybody their.
People may say negative things about this school, but honestly it's a really good school. The problem isn't the teachers, it's the students, how can a teacher get a student to do their work if the child doesn't want to succeed. I attended Gardena it is a very fun school and gets students involved with a lot of programs, no one gets discriminated. I love this school the teachers are great, but every school of course has a small percentage of lacking teachers. If you send your child to this school make sure you have your child check in to the right programs to prepare them for college as in AP classes, AVID, and many clubs they have in the school that makes students stand out.
If you're serious about getting your child prepared for college, do not send them to Gardena. It does not provide a social or academic environment that prepares students for higher education. I taught at Gardena & over the two years, I realized that many of the teachers there should have left the classroom 10 years ago. They stay because they cannot get hired elsewhere and have tenure. Good teachers at GHS DO NOT have the support they need to be successful. My first year teaching there, the principal and vice principal stepped into my room and 'observed' me for a combined three times. My second year of teaching I had a vice principal come in once the entire year and it wasn't even to observe me. I could have been throwing a party everyday in that classroom and no one would have known. Try a charter school instead.
