Goshen Central School District Reviews
With a diverse faculty and student community, Goshen Central School District is very welcoming and accepting. Hundreds of adults make themselves available for help in all aspects, including academic and personal. While I, as a former student, felt comfortable going to school and would love to see my children grow up in the same environment, I do have some ideas for change. First, I believe that students of Goshen High School, as teenagers, should have more room to make decisions and grow into adults. This could include more classes that would help them in the real world, teaching them skills such as how to do taxes, how to find a job, and how to better prepare them for college. Another idea I have is involving the Elementary school. I believe that young children should be taught about the effects of bullying. I also think that problem students should be taken more seriously and faculty should delve deeper into their home lives to see what is causing these problems.
I really liked that my high school offers a wide variety of extracurricular activities. Whether it was through sports, Science Olympiad, or the Olympics of the Visual Arts, there was always something to do. I have also talked with several friends in college about our school districts, and I was shocked to know that, unlike Goshen, my friends were not exposed to the same opportunities. I also liked that the courses had several levels of difficulty. Goshen offers regular, honors, AP, and college credit courses.
My children have truly thrived in the district. The schools are very student oriented over all else(politics, $, ect..) and take parent concerns seriously. The teachers are fantastic and seem to genuinely care about the children. We moved here from a “top-rated” Long Island district and our children have been much happier and successful within this environment. I highly recommend these schools.
