Godwin Heights Senior High School Reviews

Teachers expect kids to be perfect - sit still, no talking, expecting kids to "get it" the first time something is explained. Remember back teachers. What were you like? Be honest with yourself. Why do our kids have to compete with Japan's kids? This is America. Kids learn differently, they are not all the same. Some kids have behavior issues - maybe if you took them under your wing and mentored them their behavior would improve. They NEED good attention. Focus on the good and teach the kids to do the same. Use common sense and be leaders! If you swear, they will swear.

There is bullying going on and nothing is done about it. The secretaries are not friendly! Mr. Berlin acts superior and so do some of the teachers. The behaviors program is very separate from the rest of the school. The kids NOT in the behaviors program are Mr. Conklin's kids. He needs to protect his kids. I think they should ALL be his kids. Mr. Berlin - try to get to know the kids in the behavior's program. They will then trust you and maybe gain more control of themselves with you as a mentor. Kids of every color and economic situation.
Godwin Heights is a very diverse school. There's many different cultures and ethnicities where anybody can fit in. Teachers work hard to make sure the students get the academic help they need. They incorporate activities to prepare students for college readiness. It is a pleasure to be a student a Godwin Heights Senior High School.
