The Gooden School Reviews
I felt compelled to leave a review because I am heartbroken to see the downfall of this school. What was once a bespoke, top tier education is now rife with internal politics and staff who have disregarded the founding tenets of empathy and respect. I am in the family planning stage of my life, and while it pains me to say, I can’t in good faith plan to send my children here. I would honestly recommend other independent schools such as Chandler or High Point.
If you’re considering sending your child here and would like to speak more, I am available. Wishing you luck in your school journey!
