I have attended Goshen community schools all of my academic career. Ever since i was young i never had a doubt about the education i was receiving. Every teacher that works at GCS is motivated and cares deeply about the students. No problem goes unsolved and they make sure the schools diversity is accounted for. The overall environment at GCS is very inclusive and they try their hardest to make sure every student has a voice and feels comfortable coming to school. As far as resources, id say GCS is by far the best school corporation in terms of making resources available for everyone. Whether its after school homework help or helping out low income familys, GCS is always there to help with what they can.

Very good environment! Growing up in this very diverse school system has helped me learn things further than academics. The teachers want you to succeed, they want you to go out in the world and do things after high school. I have always felt safe in the environment, staff members make me feel comfortable.
I believe Goshen has a bit of improving to do. Some great things about this school district is their ability to provide laptops to every student, they have great diverse teachers and students. The IB selection course is wonderful, every student has the opportunity to try and pursue IB. Some things I believe they need to improve on is the teacher staff, it seems some teachers are accepted into the job just because the district needs teachers. I've had a couple of teachers at moments who seem to not know much about the course.
