Godwin Heights has been one of the best schools I've ever been to! We are very diverse, we make everyone feel welcome no matter where they come from. We have fun days and challenge days and I've never heard of another school have those types of activities. Fun days and challenge days make you feel more comfortable with your school and you get to experience talking to different people that you might not have already talked to in school. The teachers in this school make you feel comfortable in their classroom, they definitely show that they care about you. Godwin provides you with the education that everyone needs and I'm proud to say that I will be graduating from here soon! The past three and a half years at Godwin have been great and I'm glad that I got the chance to go to this school.

I have been going to Godwin since I was in 6th grade it has been the best school I have ever went to and that's why I am now graduating from there. I believe this is a great school for anyone and everyone fits in so well! There are so many different ethnicities and it's nice seeing everyone get along. One thing I would want to see different would definitely be the school lunches. I am very thankful they provide breakfast and lunch for us but its not always everyone's favorite and some choose not to eat.. I see it everyday. Maybe that little change can make it better for the rest.
The staff are always welcoming and encouraging to all students. We have great athletes, singers and a great band! At Godwin heights I would change the food options. More options and better food would be a huge impact on students minders in coming to school.
