"The experience in the GPS Ed program with the hands on curriculum has given me a chance to learn things I wouldn't learn in a traditional classroom, which is something I truly valued."
"GPS Ed was an investment in myself because it gave me many opportunities to better my life, and it has prepared me for the real world."
"My senior year at GPS Ed has changed my life because it gave me something to look forward to."
"GPS Ed is showing me that there is more to education than studying, stressing, and failing. I can confidently say that once I leave this program and go on to graduate, I can have a better sense and be more ready for the real world outside of these walls."

"Being in GPS Ed has helped me improve in areas I was weak at. For example, I was forced to work on my unreliability because if I kept missing work, I would be fired. This is not being a strong adult."
"My biggest tip to new students at GPS Ed is ask your teachers for any help you need. They will actually provide you with help in this program. I would like to thank you for a great two years of my life."
"One thing I will take from my time in the program and apply to my life is try to focus more on myself so I can really understand what I want and where I want to be."
"The sense of purpose I gained from my classwork activities and apprenticeship caused me to want to learn more for my own benefit, not just to get it done."
"Through my experience at GPS Ed I learned to see where I was doing well and change the bad because you tend to become what you're around."
