I'm currently a freshman at Barbara Goleman Senior High. Based on my experiences so far, this school is amazing. With the new administration, things seem to be heading in a very positive direction. Since I'm limited to how much I can type, here's Goleman in a really long run on sentence: a mega-magnet; provides dual enrollment; so so many AP classes; pep rallies are wild; the library is being renovated; lunch is 40 minutes (pretty awesome); football games are a must-go; HOCO is lit; clubs are awesome... What else? Oh, they have a credit union at the school too! You can open an account and start saving money/get a credit card/open a checking account. I've never seen that at any other school before. Oh, and we're an "A" school! So far, 4.7/5 stars.
