Guam - The George Washington Geckos are no stranger to overcrowding. Previous meetings have discussed four likely options for the upcoming school year: redistricting up to 700 students to Southern High, double-session, extended day, or to remain in status quo. The school's capacity is 2100 students, but expects 2,800 students for the upcoming school year.

According to Acting Principal Darlene Roberto, students are showing favor to remain in status quo, on the condition that classrooms have working air conditioning units and enough equipment. Roberto adds that some parents have offered to donate folding chairs and tables. Roberto stresses that in order for students to complete the scheduling process, they will need a mayor's verification and utility bill with their parents' names to ensure they are in the correct district.

To ease conditions for the future, Roberto asks that legislation focus on building another central high school.
