Goochland High School was an amazing experience. I enjoyed Goochland due to the activities provided to the students, the interaction between teacher and students, and relationships built with classmates. Sports was an escape for me from my school work load and home life it allowed for me get release negative energy in a positive way. My teachers were amazing! They always put in extra hours after school to help me in studying and understanding chapters that were difficult. Lastly, the students were my friends. We might not have always liked each other but we were always civil. I feel that Goochland needs to improve on their food in the Cafeteria.

Goochland High School has been my second home for the past four years. From the variety of class options, to program options, Goochland truly has it all. I have never felt like an outsider and the administrative staff, especially Principal Dr. Collier, tries their hardest to maintain a personable relationship with the students and make sure we are all feeling happy.
Goochland County Public Schools offers great learning opportunities. Growing up within this school district helped shaped me to be the way I am now, and taught me to be caring as much as they are. The teachers in this school district genuinely care about every individual and will do anything to help them succeed within school and their future. This school district is also adding more things to benefit the futures/careers of their students. Some of these include more career based classes.
