Goodrich Area Schools Reviews

The teachers were absolutely fantastic and created a relaxed and healthy learning environment. Classes were flexible and the office and councilors were friendly and helpful. The only real downsides were the poor school lunches and the fact that an unweighted GPA system was used up until this year. There has also not been a consistent principal throughout my high school career. We are currently on our third and hopefully final principal, and he seems like a good man who will finally cement the leadership at Goodrich High School. Overall my experience was overwhelmingly positive with only a few minor gripes about largely unimportant issues. The main focus of high school, academics, was handled extremely well and handled in a satisfactory manner.

Some teachers are great at what they do, others shouldn’t have ever become a teacher. For the most part it’s just a decent school there’s nothing special but nothing too awful. The cafeteria food isn’t the greatest but that’s what you’ll find at most high schools. The administration seems to get more strict every year. In such a small town and school district everyone knows everyone for the most part, which can be seen as good or bad. Our athletic programs are all above average, we have a really nice football field which is Astro turf.
Although I am a junior at Goodrich High School, I moved to the school in middle school after moving around fairly often. The absolute best part of Goodrich is its community. All high school stereotypes are left at the door, and almost all of the students are extremely friendly and helpful. Whether this is because our small population or something else, its so nice to avoid cliques and such. The majority of the teachers are very nice and helpful, so much so that I have actually become very good friends with many of them and feel completely comfortable coming to them with my problems. There are a select few which are significantly harsher with grades or stricter with policies that are less open to a friendly relationship and more likely to devolop a strictly professional one. In spite of personalities, if a student is willing to actually try in classes, they will learn and do well.
