Robert H. Goddard High School of Communication Arts & Technology Reviews

When applying to RGHS, many representatives made sure to inform me that the school was small, and when I applied their was only about 530 students enrolled. Nothing is more prominent to me, not only is the school small population wise, but the campus is a single floor, in the building of a middle school. The high school and the middle school also aren't always on the best terms so that also makes things difficult when it comes to navigating the school during certain times and planning events, since the campus is shared and they do not own any outdoor space. The small size may me better for some applicants though because the relationships between the students and teachers are much more comfortable and close.

Robert H Goddard High School is an above average high school. Throughout my time here, I believe that this school has a lot to offer for the type of school it is. This school is a good academic school, and offers many AP courses and allows students to challenge themselves if they please. Some people do not like schools with a large student count. This school only has 611 students enrolled between 9th and 12th grade. The hallways are usually filled but it clears up quickly. There is little acts of bullying or picking on certain students. Students here are friendly and the teachers are nice. The teachers are willing to help students improve overall as a student. The staff is great and keep the students in check. Overall, I believe this school is a good school if you don't want your child going to a highly populated school or if you want them close to home.
My experience being a student here is that it is a very small school, which plays a part in a good teacher to student relationship. Most of the teachers are very supportive and if you are having trouble with a subject they will help you. There is also a good selection of clubs and extracurriculars, but we could use some more. There are also a lot of ways to get involved at the school. Despite all the positives, I think in terms of academics/curriculum there is a lot of room to grow. Overall, I think that the staff and teachers try their best to help you succeed.
