Gowanda Central School District Reviews

Gowanda is a smaller district with not much diversity. To some this may come as a negative, but in ways id say this can be seen as an advantage. For example it offers more individual help and also creates more close relationships with teachers, which can make it easier when it comes to getting specific help and being comfortable with asking questions. One thing i wish was offered more at Gowanda is that i wish there was more diversity there is really not much here and I think being able to have that diversity can be a very good experience to have.

I really love Gowanda's school and community spirit. Everyone from the teachers and administration to the students and families always encourage and support everyone in what they do. I also enjoy the opportunities Gowanda High School has to offer in AP classes and Jamestown Community College courses. I have already earned several college credit hours without attending college.
Gowanda definitely has multiplayer college classes that anyone can take. However, there is no college science classes available.
