    Could you think of some acts for the talent show of the high school?

    Hello

    Are the following sentences grammatically correct?

    "Could you think of some acts for the talent show of the high school? I would be very grateful! You are a very creative and talented woman."

    Thanks.

    I would not hyphenate high school in that sentence. You should hyphenate it when it's used as an adjective: high-school talent shows can be entertaining. When it's a noun, the words stand on their own: ​the high school's talent show.

    I wouldn't use the hyphen or the possessive. I'd just call it the "high school talent show".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
