The school has a lot of advanced and honors classes and provides good education, for most classes. Very few teachers just lack the excitement of their job and it affects most of the students, it bothers me. A lot of the students are really intelligent, hence the many honors classes and a lot of students just lack in their work (it's pretty much half and half). And I haven't seen any bullying and if there is, the teachers take good care of that. There's excellent sports teams, especially soccer, just not so much football. The student ethnicity, is like almost 85% white, it's like going to an all white school. No problems with that. The dress code is barely enforced, I saw a girl the other day wearing practically a bra and in the summer girls wear extremely short shorts and the teachers don't do anything about it. You're allowed to have phones out only in the hallways and kids take advantage and use it in the classrooms. The electives are great but the clubs are boring, unless you're a social bird. If you do many sports and many honors classes, it's hard to manage but I'm the laziest person alive and I'm doing great. Oh, and the hot lunch is repetitive but they have a sandwich bar.

I just graduated from this school. I spent my entire high school career here and my experience was pretty average. Some teachers I really liked, some I didn't. There is a lot of politics involved in this school as many generations of families have gone through it. The guidance department did not know anything, but from what I hear that is normal for any high school. The teachers play favorites like it is their job. This school is what you make of it. I have always wished I went somewhere else, and I know a lot of people who felt the same. There is not much school pride from the students, but it is good enough.

As an educator, I wanted a school that offered the best opportunites in all areas. Both our children had the advanced courses they needed as well as the chance to play sports. The administration and staff knew them by name and took an interest in them. This is not a huge school where you are just a number. The size of the district played an important part in our decision to live here.

Goshen High School was wonderful for me. I was in advanced classes that challeneged me to work to my potential. The teachers and administrators care. It's a school that prepares you well for college, and you don't even realize it.
