My senior year administration and teachers all wanted the best version that Barbara Goleman could be with our new principle. With a new Mega Magnet Program, upgrading the schools appearance and enforcing better security. Overall I have watched this high school advance and grow so much in the past years. The administration and teachers had to be the reason why being a student at Barbara Goleman Senior High was a great experience. Not only do they see you as students, but which ever one of them you encounter, they will help you with anything. It may be your Biology teacher, your CAP Advisor, or even a custodian, the environment in this high school will allow you to grow as a person because of the role each and one of them play makes a huge impact on us as students.

The school has a new principal and this is actually a good thing! The school is getting better extracurricular and academic programs and their is better school involvement in the students lives. This ensures that students will be getting their full high school experience.
As an alumna of Barbara Goleman Senior high school all I can say is that I am very thankful for all the help and support I received from my teachers and administration. From my personal experience, I do not have any complaints in concern to the academics and college readiness factor from the school. I felt like I received a well-rounded education and that I took advantage of all the opportunities the school had to offer. However, I do feel like the school should improve it's communication with its students as a way to encourage them to take advantage o such resources like the Cambridge program and the dual enrollment program the school offers.
