This is not the best school system for my children. It may be for parents who know certain people on a personal level at the school, but not me. Although my family has a history at Goshen, I do not. No diversity exists within Goshen's administration or faculty. I do believe Blacks are able to Substitute teach, but I do not know that a full time teaching position has been offered. I do not recall any Black person holding a position, except in the Athletic's department. Please correct me if I am mistaken. I find a problem with this as a parent who grew up in an all white school district, but yet I still had Black faculty members over 30 years ago. Separation is wrong on all levels, but when different learning levels are involved there should be a line drawn. So excuse you, to the parent with the child who has the learning disability. Special classes are set up for your child. Children with learning disabilities should not be excluded from class if they excel in a subject.. He/she should be able to be included in that classroom. I send my child to school with the expectation of getting the best education, athletic coaching, & opportunity for the future. I hope this place improves.

goshen schools are terrible. the teachers are fine but the lack of niceness from the assistant principle is very aggravating.

I am saddened by the parent who is "not a big fan" of mainstreaming children with special needs. Clearly this person is not aware that inclusion of all students helps both children with special needs and their typical peers. This allows those with disabilities to learn appropriate social skills and academic learning that they need to be contributing members of their communities some day, and their typical peers learn acceptance and also cement new skills they have just learned by helping those who may be struggling. As a mother with a baby girl with down syndrome looking to move to goshen I hope most parents don't think like you do. But I am glad that Goshen strives to help all students acheive and does not believe those that are different should be locked away so those that are uncomfortable with things they don't understand feel safe from their own ignorance.

I have one child in the GMS and one who has went through GMS, currently at GHS. I have always been happy with all teachers and the modifications my children recevied for there learning disabilities. However, I am afraid things are shifting for the worse. The zero tolerance rules and no child left behind joke is putting too much stress on the teachers. I have had a heck of a time getting assignments posted on the web timely so I know current grades, ect. They have no time to help the slower learning students and manage a class size so big. This is the first year I am looking at alternatives to GMS. I still have one more child to pass through . I am also not a big fan of the special ed children becoming so included into main stream education and the school is really pushing this too.

My daughter is in the 8th grade and every teacher that she has had has been great, I believe Goshen has made great strides to become an excellent school. Their sports are awesome and I can't wait for her to get into high school and rock it! Go GOSHEN!

Regarding the parent who sent her children back to private school, I have worked extensively with the school and teachers at each grade level and have yet to find the kind of environment described. This is obviously a case of my child does nothing wrong and it is ALWAYS someone elses fault. GMS is a great school with a caring staff. My children's teachers went above and beyond every year. I am proud to say my children attend GMS.

Overall, we have been satisified with GMS, however it depends on so many different aspects. Most teachers seem to care about the kids and are willing to work with parents to ensure good quality education. We have however had a few 'doosies' where it's obvious that they are waiting for retirement, lack caring, compassion, patience, and overall goodwill in the classroom & good rapport with the kids and parents. Nothing seems to be done to address those issues, but rather, shirking responsibilities and placing blame. Counselors support position of teachers which doesn't help. Guess the teacher's union is strong enough to prevent them from firing. Principal seems like a good man who has a good rapport with kids. All Goshen schools say they want parent involvement, but what that usually means is allowing parents to do work for them, not active communication about their kids.

I have two children in attendance at Goshen Middle School and I volunteer there on a regular basis (twice a month reading tutoring). I know the staff and the students and can honestly say, GMS is a wonderful place for students of any ability level. I loved how many activities involved the entire family and stressed the idea of group accountability. It is never the fault of one teacher, administrator, parent, or student if a student is failing. At GMS everyone works together and accepts responsibility for the success or failure of their students. Troy Smith is a great principal, and he leads a great team of well-educated teachers and aides.

I had 2 children that attended Goshen. They asked to be put back into private school. We spent all year asking teachers to focus on teaching my children but they refused to only teach the bare minimum. The teachers and the staff are worse then the kids. They have more excuses then my kids do then they wonder why the children act the way they do. I could go on with dozen of stories of how my kids came home crying because they would not help them or tell them that they may not get around to grading papers. The schools atmoshpere is uninviting and only focuses on difficult children. I am appalled that they have the nerve to act like the parents are not involved when they push us aside. I gave up. My childrens education is to important. I will get a 2nd job or move.
