Legends say that upon your 3rd fight won at this school, you will be visited in the night by a spirit that will offer you free cigarettes. Joking only, but yeah. Lots of vapers, smokers, drinkers, and druggies. It's a lot better than it used to be from what I hear, though. You can kind of just tell be the uniforms it's not the greatest school in the country, but it is a good school. Overall nice teachers, good classes, and the principal's doing good things here. Maybe wouldn't have come here knowing what I know now if I had a choice between here and somewhere like Avondale, although I don't really know what Avondale's like. I've had some good times and met some cool people, though.

With the construction currently going on it's sometimes a bit tedious to get around, and it seems like they're always fixing something over the holiday and they never have it done by the time students come back. Every time it's done it's better than it was, especially B block and F block, but parts of E, C, and D blocks are still in need of renovation. Not like absolutely dreadful condition, they're nice enough, but they just feel a bit out of the times.

Interesting school

Pretty good, most of the teachers are helpful and 🤓. Heaps of druggies tho, unless you count that as a good thing? There aren't any overseas scholarships which sucks, but there are heaps of domestic scholarships. There's no camps, there are no school trips either. The uniform is way too strict, I mean c'mon can't even have blue nail polish? Who does nail polish even affect tho?? And the school wall colours suck, it's so draining to see a yolk yellow because it makes you depressed as hell! But, here's something better, you get mufti in year 13, best thing about this school to ever exist is that. I for one think that the tuck shop is way too overpriced. Bloody 2.50 bucks for a garlic bread, AND THEY DON'T EVEN INCLUDE THE BLOODY GARLIC. But, the school is a little above average in the sports department with opportunities for everyone. And the tech department is bomb. They have the best equipment and resources where you just let your creativity flowwwww. Anyways I recommend the school if none of those things bother you, because in the end academics wise, it's a good school. You know, you learn and understand and apply, which is what school is for.

Genuinely a great school. Teachers are relaxed yet passionate enough for class to genuinely be enjoying. Rules regarding uniform are not as strict as other schools in the area. It’s easier to get to know everyone at this school too. Also, the senior staff regularly walks around and talks to students, apart from the uniform comments that sometimes annoy students, it really helps us develop a bond with all staff members. Teachers genuinely care about us, and the teachers I’ve had have been so lovely to me. Also, have very rarely experienced homophobia or racism, and the school actively pushes a 0 discrimination policy, even though there are a few instances of bullying that people encounter. Overall, it’s a pretty good school :)

Most of the teachers are of a high standard, with extra support and help services available. Year 13 mufti is a bonus. A bit strict on the uniform.

Gbhs sucks

Rules are too strict, uniform and stuff, teachers also push the students too much to always have stuff done. The principle is really stuck up too, I recommend any other school in west Auckland instead :)

Great!
