Goshen Community Schools Reviews

Goshen Community Schools have much more to offer than just education. The most unique and beneficial factor of the school system is the opportunity to learn traditionally or with New Tech, primarily in middle school but in elementary and high school as well. New Tech helps push students not just as learners, but as individuals. Along with the curriculum, you learn communication, leadership, time management, problem-solving, and teamwork skills. For young students like myself to make such strides in such a short amount of time is incredible. However, there's always room for improvement. Academically, Goshen Community Schools suffers. The number of high achieving students is quite low. A minority amount of students have the motivation to succeed and that's devastating. Half of that is the society and maybe the other half is just the lack of repercussion.

I like the open feel students receive at school and the ability to have self expression. The staff are well trained in all aspects and I can tell the teachers make a real effort to form connections with their students. The level of education all students are given the opportunity to receive is something the school is proud of and advocates for. Equal opportunity is clearly important to Goshen High School. However, I would love to see smaller class sizes for more one on one interactions, and I believe the school is working towards this goal by adding on to the building.
Such a welcoming school district focused on finding community within the vast diversity. I had teachers that, despite their low pay, went the extra mile to make students feel welcomed and appreciated, whether that be by creating extensions when someone was having personal issues, attending extracurricular activities, or merely receiving students with open arms when we needed someone to lean on.
