You should check out community first, like any public school, this is who they cater to in terms of educating children. Then get to know better yet observe administrators, my experience not as bad as most,but definately in need of change of those in charge. They are not advocates of parental involvement and will treat your child based on sterio types and their (administrators) previous school experiences,which are for the most part, not very positive; sure most have been the the public school system for decades, the question is job security vs positive experiences vs dedication to ALL children. I think the 5 star rating is a result of most of them writing their own reviews!
A very diverse school with Asians, Hispanics, Blacks, White. Atmosphere is very family-like and welcoming. I transferred in to the school in late 2004 in 3rd grade; 8th grade graduate (class of 2010 :P). The school has so much to offer. They have built a big field for students' convenience where the school parking lot once was located, and has been there for 2-3 years now I believe. They tore down the old Jose Marti building and transformed it into a parking lot for teachers. There is also a school garden in which the students participate in and help create in the plan of going green. The school offers a variety of programs, such as football, boys' & girls' soccer, girl's volleyball, boys' basketball, cheerleading, cross-country & track&field, science club, chess club, student council, book club (Battle of the Books) etc. Technology is outstanding -- computers, laptops, & Smart Boards. Etc.
It is a school that has had students w/ talent but lacked funds to cultivate skills,also needs musical instruments and updated sports program.
great school great environment for young kids. My kinder lil girl learns a lot from this school. knowing that she didn't even attend pre-k. She went to this school as kinder. She didn't even know how to read, write and count to 100 yet. i like this school.
This school is the best. it provides a great learning enviorment for all that come to it.
The students are engaged in all of their classes. Unlike neighboring schools that lecture and keep silent classroom, when you walk down the halls you can hear kids excited about learning. They also just started a new chess program that my daughter will not stop talking about!
I think this is school is very good because all the staff and teachers are friendly. The teachers help you out a lot when you needtheir help. There is more than one culture, it doesnt matter if your African American, Hispanic, Asian, White, etc. You are welcome at this school. I am an 8th grader and I am very happy with my school.
I think this school is very good since there are amazing teachers and such a great opportunity for me to learn. Also this school is very supportive since i am in 7th grade i really want to be able to get into a good highschool. Goudy is a international school all types of clutures and language its great to know that u dont have just one cluture but varieties of them.
My children attends this school for about three years no and the teachers and staff are just amazing to work with. My kids' homeroom teachers are helpful to me when I'm not informed by my children of what's happening in their school work.
