Goshen High School Reviews

Goshen High School is a great school in a town that has seen its fair share of troubles. Most other schools in out area discount our school because half our students live under the poverty line and struggle with learning. Dispite this, GHS is a place where students from all different backgrounds can come and receive education that is quality and equal to their peers. What I have enjoyed most about my school is how much the teachers actually care about their students as a person and not just as a grade. This is not to say that GHS does not have flaws. My school does not get much funding and when it does, it feels like they do not put it towards the departments that actually need it the most. I'd like to see them change this and prioritize departments with out dated materials and technology.

The teachers are very caring and outreaching; they put their students first. There is a wide range of extracurricular activities to get involved in, and the music department is awesome! There is a wide range of academic choices as well (IB, AP, and dual-credit courses are offered).
I love the atmosphere. All staff was always so kind! They truly cared about the safety of their students and success of them. They made sure you were going in the right direction of where you wanted to head in life. The teachers were always available to talk when ever needed. One thing I think they could change is making marching band and color guard a sport. It is definitely a hard thing to do and it takes as much energy as football!
