The teachers here are excellent and actually care about us we went from an F to an A school. I attend here and it is a great school. The leadership and staff do their job and do it effectively. The Academy of Finance and Academy of Information Technology are also great programs to help you get an early start on your career. Lastly if its one thing Amos P. Godby High school has. It is it's Cougar Pride
Godby maybe a F school this year, but i go there and i know these teachers try and teach the students what is expected. Godby has the IT academy and the AOF academy which i am in and its awesome. even though im deciding to move away for my 11th grade year. I know on top of everything this school comes out on top.
I love this school. Even with the flaws that it has...it is the most diverse school in Leon county. I have many relatives that has graduated and made a successful lifestyle for themselves. This school happens to be a eye opener to students and others that are outside looking in.
this school is a really bad school!!! the teachers here do not help me child. she comes home form school confused. they dont take the time to explain the things that the children do not understand. they need to take more time to help the kids.
Godby is a great school with great people runing the school, sure there are a few exceptions but for the most part a great program all around. I graduated in 2003 with a 3.5 GPA and I participated in several sports such as football, weightlifting, shot-put, and wrestling. all the coaching staff is top notch and defently push you to do well in both school and sports with school always coming first, I would defently do it all over again
My child had many positive learning experiences at Godby, both through academic and extracurricular activities. While not every teacher was exceptional, the vast majority were warm, caring individuals who were truly committed to their students, and most were excellent instructors and leaders.
i am curently a senior at godby, and i honestly can not stand the school! i have been there for 5 years. only because of the class sizes! there is huge classes, some with 30-35 kids in them. the teachers get frustrated very easily, and as much as godby says that they are working on the racism problem, it is untrue! whether it be by skin color, personality, or ethinic background. if your child learns better with more teacher-student enviorment, godby isnt really the place.
