I would rate my high school Goode STEM Academy an “A”. I would rate it an “A” because overall they offer amazing opportunities to their students such as dual enrollment earning college credits in high school and also getting the opportunity to graduate with an associates degree as well with partnered city colleges. My school offers a variety of clubs such as swimming, debate, robotics, chess and many more. They create an amazing environment for students to be themselves. Also, they offer amazing networking opportunities and internship opportunities. Overall, this school sets their students up to be successful early on.

Good school. Teachers really try to communicate with their students in and outside of the classroom. Early college program is great for helping students be prepared for college!
I LOVED SEG (Sarah E. Goode Academy High School)! I graduated in 2017. My class was the 2nd class to enter and exit. I was taught how to manage my time. Respect. They prepared me for college and life. If it wasn't for them, I wouldn't know how I would've managed college now. They have so many programs including having IBM come talk to us and also being able to graduate with our Associates Degree as well as a high school diploma. Very good school!
