Effective school leaders: Disagree

New administration goes rogue on discipline, to the point where I had to report incidents to central office.

Teacher effectiveness: Disagree


- a
It was very uneven. A few standouts but also some real zeros.


Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
One teacher dictated the literacy HW curriculum for all teachers. More experienced staff told me they hated it but could do nothing. Neither of my kids benefitted from it, so I wasn't surprised they felt this way.



- a
Big difference between the experiences of child 1 and child 2. A change of administration in 2015 brought about a shift to "school to prison" disciplinary model with no adherence to mcps guidelines.



- a
I'm surprised that Goshen only gets a 5 out of 10 score. This is a wonderful school with excellent teachers and staff and great PTA. My children are so happy in this school.


Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
There is transparency in telling students and parents about issues and opportunities. There is constant communication from the administration and PTA to the parents.



- a
A very caring school from the front office staff to the teachers. Very involved and inclusive PTA. A lot of parent involvement. Tons of EC activities. A big feeder school to HGC programs. Diverse mix of students. I was surprised by the low score, but reading the reviews I realized many forgot to give them any stars, even when the reviews were great.. Another poster does not like the middle and hs.

Goshen Elementary School is an excellent school! Wonderful teachers! Great academic programs! The director is doing an awesome job managing the school, making sure the facility is organized, well maintained and inviting. I feel that they care for each and every child equally proving the right guidance that the kids need. Best public school in the area!!! A++++




- a
Great teachers, terrible curriculum. Kids are just learning to memorize instead of learning the actual material. I'm finding that I have to spend 2 hours every night teaching my children what their teachers should have taught them during the 6 hours of classtime they're in. I'm very disappointed with what the Montgomery County Public School system is becoming! Not everyone can afford private school, you know!

Teacher effectiveness: Neutral


- a
The teachers are very very nice! It's their curriculums that are the problem! Children spend less time on a subject in school than they do at home!
