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 provides numerous resources for all of its students. The school provides lots of help and support when it comes to the college process. They help you write your college essay and host college nights regarding financial aid and life after high school. GHS provides you with college assistance and with abundant quantities of books, laptops, and online resources that assist academic needs. GHS has drug counselors and counselors that are there to help with mental help. I think they make a large impact on the students lives and are able to make them change for the better. Goffstown has many resources provided to the students that are an immense help to not only their academic lives, but their lives outside of school too.
Goffstown High School has such a great environment. It has loving and caring teachers who truly have the best interests of their students. The extracurricular scene is great, and we have some of the best school events in the area. The pep rallies are about as fun as they could possibly be. We have such spirit. The school provides its students with great opportunities to expand learning horizons with tons of AP classes as well as the option to go to Manchester School of Technology. Ultimately, I feel like I have a real home at GHS, and I am happy to call it my school.
