The school is the worse in Montgomery. I send my grandchildren there and it's nothing but trouble. Fights they got em. Faculty members that don't have brains? they got them too. They should close this school DOWN. I keep my kids at home on sick days and then send the excuses I guess the teachers are throwing the the excuses away. DO NOT SEND YOUR KIDS HERE
Community Service - Principal Bright, the PTSA, and the students at Goodwyn raised $600 in September for the The Muscular Dystrophy Association. They have an annual fundraiser (MDA Lock-Up) where representatives from community businesses, schools etc. are arrested and held in a "jail". In order to "post bail', they raise money for MDA! See the pictures of the event on the PTSA blog at: http://www.goodwynptsa.blogspot.com/
I am an student i mean goodwyn is a good school but just need better teacher and better ways to handle student i went their and tried to impress people by doing something wrong by doing trying to impress them by saying mean word to a teacher but goodwyn i made good friend if you hangout with wrong people you will get horrible friends but other words you'll get awesome funny friend like i have now!!!
Posted June 9,201 This school has been a big disappointment! I have three kids who go here. No control over the classes. My kids have come home crying because of bullying.After they told a counselor it has gotten better. But I wouldn't recommend this school to anyone.
My son comes from a military family and wanted to go to Goodwyn because of the extracurricular activities that are not at a lot of the magnet schools. I have to say, he just loves it, the teachers are strict but caring and he has made tons of friends there. I was happy with the curriculum and the way the pricipal handles the school
Goodwyn is an okay school,i mean its not a bad school or nothing. A lot of people kept telling me its bad and dont go, but when i went there it wasnt that bad. Just dont start nothing with anybody or talk to the 'wrong' people. As far as the education its going well. At Goodwyn, they do have great discipline and are not very strict. The principal is very caring and does his job like hes suppose too.
My son has attended Goodwyn Junior High from 7th-9th. This is his last year in Junior High School and I am already greatly disappointed. The Administration staff seems to care very little, if any at all. I do not see any academic challenge whatsoever, and this year should be especially important since the high school credits start now. Overall, if it were not for my sons close friends who attend Goodwyn, he would have been moved and relocated 2 years ago!! Last, regardless of how mis-behaved, rude, and/or dis-respectful some of the students *and* staff may be, each child should be allowed to voice their opinion and be heard...and our educators should look at each and every student as our furture leaders.
