I hate this school system, all this kids are extremely rude and the only way to be fully accepted by everyone is athletics. Students have no room to excel in anything but that.

I traveled with my family to various parts of the United States and around the world. This provided me the opportunity to attend numerous schools. Frankly, Gobels High School was, academically, at least two years behind the other schools I had attended. It had little to offer and specialized programs that allow students to pursue their interest and talents in ways that they can develop themselves for future specialized jobs. The curriculum was extremely basic and, in particular, the math program was, overall, about four grade level behind the math programs at other high schools I had attended. Overall, I had the impression that Gobels High School was training its students for jobs in menial positions, such as working in a paper mill or on automotive plant assembly line. The school needs to improved academically and allowing students to pursue courses that would help them develop technical, math and scientific skills, thereby providing them the opportunity to compete and to obtain highly technical jobs or to pursue university degrees. Without such improvements in the education for our children, they will not be prepared for the jobs of the future.

We moved our kids into this school when my oldest was 8. Combined my kids had 9 years of education at Gobles. One of those years was less than stellar academically for one child and because we were involved (as most parents are) it was easy to talk to the principal about it. The following year that child's test scores skyrocketed. The principle simply won't tolerate mediocrity. I really owe the teachers at this school a large debt of gratitude for 9 amazing years of pouring love and learning into my kids. It is a wonderfully diverse environment racially and in how they work with special needs kids. Many schools preach character but few expect it and coach for it. This school is imperfect; but not by too much.

This is an amazing school system. Everyone is very involved with helping each student to accomplish there goals. It's a very happy and friendly environment from K-12. Schools seem to be under a great superintendent, which is what we have needed ! Great job Gobles!

I go to this school. I moved into the high school for my freshman year, and everybody welcomed me with open arms. Gobles is a very friendly and family place. The students and staff are all very nice, they all care about you. You are treated like family. It's a place of comfort. Doesn't feel much like school because it is "relaxed." Since we are a very small school, you get to know everybody. Have more friends, and people treat one another with more respect. Couldn't be happier to be called a Gobles Tiger!

This school is good if you like the drama, bullying, and absolutly no help from the staff. The school is all about the athletics and not teaching the kids. Seems like pregnancy is promoted there and not advised against. Hope your not afraid to have you kids contract an std.Name and money are everything to this school and they are sure to make the other students know this.

I totally agree with, if you dont have the right name, your out of luck at Gobles. some of the school workers are clicky and still caught up in teenage drama. I wish we would of sent our child to a school with professionals that care about the kids and thier development. there is only one class that prepares them for college. Less kids are going out for sports because of the favortism. classes and some sport transprotations are being cut. The special needs class is very limited. For people that are thinking about enrolling, the staff does SEEM nice. And Gobles does have Some wonderful teachers.

this school repeats the same things over and over. If you have one student go through just have them save the homework because it never changes. If you have the right last name you'll pass and never get in any long term trouble. The good ole boy policy is in place.

I graduated from Gobles and had a good experience and wanted my children to have the same experience. I am a little disappointed at the name game that is played at this school. If you have the right last name you are favored, especially in sports. There is also alot of cliches among the coaches and parents, and coaches and their players that should not be there. There is a lot gossiping between teachers, coaches and students about the students and their families. Professionalism is missing in my opinion and needs to be brought back. There are agendas at this school that have no place being there. There are some teachers and coaches that still have integrity. These teachers and coaches are what keeps me letting my children attend and the hope that their example will be followed by the others in charge of the school.

I think that this school bases too much on football. I attended my entire life and I still live there now. Unforntately, I am sending my children also. They lack in scholastics and focus on sports (mainly football, check the budget!) It is a very 'clicky' school. If you're not in the right 'click', you're nothing. Books are supposed to be on a 5 year rotation but if they don't have enough to purchase books they only buy as many as they can. Leaving other students with photo copied books. If you can, send your students anywhere but here.

Small is very good, all the students and teachers know and look after each other. My first son did very well at Gobles and now my scecond son is in high school. Every kid has a chance to play on a sports team.

I think that Gobles school system is great I am very happy with how they treat the students with care. They work with each one to make sure they understand the information that they are taught very well. I would recommend this school to anyone.

This is a wonderful school. Both of my sons were in the Gobles school system and they blossomed. We had to move due to a job transfer but I wish they could have finished school there. It's a small school and they can afford the time and attention to make sure every child recieves what they need. The teachers are awesome!

The Gobles Public school system is a great place for your child to go. All the people are friendly and the teachers are great! Not to mention the extra-curricular activity. If you live in South West Michigan, then I would try to send your child to this school.

Gobles Public Schools was a blessing to my family over two generations. My husband attended there during his entire schooling and we moved back there to raise our children with the same fundamental ideals as was my husband. This is a school that truly cares about the children and the relationship of the parents with their children. The staff is very supporting at every turn. God Bless this school district for its work in our community.
