Goethe International Charter School Reviews
Teachers are amazing and so dedicated. Administration is just the best and involved. There have been lots of very positive changes with the new executive director in place.
German language is not spoken in our house and I was little concernEd at the beginning, but no need to worry! You don’t have to know any German to get the advantages of this great learning environment!
Co-exciting on middle school campus was my other concern at first but everything is very well organized and I have not experienced Or noticed anything bad because of that.
No playground? Other concern when we first started. Who needs that when there is so much room to run and get creative with games!
We love our school so much!
