Goffstown High School Reviews

This school has created so many wonderful memories for me! The school spirit among classes is undying and the clubs they provide help students become more involved in the school environment. Some classes could use more options for teachers, as some students learn differently, and may struggle to understand one teacher's limited skillset. When you do get a good teacher in your class, it is easy to connect with them and get help outside of class if needed. If you aren't satisfied with the class you are in, then the guidance counselors are readily available to make changes to your schedule anytime. Overall, the staff and student body are positive and work together to create a great learning environment for teenagers.

Goffstown High School is a great school with plenty of diversity, acceptance and talented teachers. The commute is not too long but can get heavy with traffic early in the morning. As a school, we perform highly regarding test scores, sports, and the performing arts. All the teachers love their job and share their joy with their students by making learning fun and enjoyable. The guidance counselors truly help prepare students for success as they help them pick the best classes, help them with college preparation and personal issues. If I were to change something I would install a track on the school's property as the track kids have to walk down the block to Barnard Park which can be dangerous if they can't get a ride from an upperclassman. Goffstown High School is truly a safe community with welcoming attitudes from a number of staff and students.
It’s mostly a good school. The teachers all really care. The curriculum is flexible, allowing advanced students to be enriched in honors and AP classes, and students with difficulties still be challenged and included in amazing open level classes. They have extensive college preparation, and they understand that college is not the only option, preparing you for whatever your life will take you. The school spirit is incredible. The only drawback would be that that don’t have ASL classes, and the way that they incorporate MST. We do not need that school. I can’t say much bad about it because the teaches and students have helped me grow as a person, and the mingling of New Boston and Goffstown students has allowed me to meet my best friend.
