I'm a student here at Godley High and I'm in the Godley Wildcat Marching and Symphonic Bands. We have 132 kids(equivalent to 1/3 of the student body) in the band. We just made a 1, 1, 2+ at the Teague Marching Invitational(overall 1). We have great teachers and us students are willing to learn!! We average about 15-20 kids per class(that's small)!!

I like the school and the after school programs set up for the kids. My grandaughter has joined the FLCA? program and I believe she will benifit from these activities. She did will an award the first year that she was in the program during a compitition. I don't hear too much of issues of the school.

THe school isnt that bad. Too much of their money is spent on the athletics when the ag shop is not the best. I think the school is corrupt and needs to have board done away with and vote new more caring people in.

Godley High School is a terrific school. For a small school it has some very good teachers. It is the only school that I know of that has a student committee that gives input to the principal about school issues. Two years ago this student committee acutally gave a presentaion to the school board telling them that the students wanted more technology. Now every GHS classroom has more technology and the students are engaged. Thank you for listening to the students.

Im a student at Godley High school and it is great! The teachers and principles are the best I have ever had they take care of the students and take care of trouble makers. Yes we do have to tuck our shirts in (for guys)and girls do have to wear long enough shorts and shirts. We also are big on sports but the coaches dont have favorites! Parents are involved very much and the availability of music,art,and sports are very easy to get into.

Godley High School is a very productive school. everyone in the community comes together as one because of sports, but what small town doesn't. people cannot honestly say that if there town did good in a sport they wouldn't be excited! come on now... most of the kids in this school even if they don't play sports are involved in some way... most students attend every game. many other school complain that the school work is not hard enough and that the students are not being prepared for college but this is a lie all of my children have attend Godley High School and have gone on to do bigger and better things.

I can honestly tell you that this school does not put enough emphasis on education. It really is All about sports. You are no-one in this school if you aren't on the varsity basketball team. They are so worried about holes in jeans that they can't see that students all over are being constantly picked on. These things have to stop, or our children need to be out of this school.

This school is what you call over strict!! They treat 'students' like their in 'prison'. For examples: boys have to tuck in their shirts!, girls cannot have their cartlidge pierced or earring shown in that spot!, girls must have their skirts or shorts '3in' above the knee!. (it should be at least finger length) you can get a write up just by asking the teacher simple questions, such as what their religion is and if they have any kids!, not to mention that school's lunch cost! Just a reminder this is a public school!

I am a teacher at the high school level. I believe that Godley needs to have more emphasis on education and less on sports -- almost 50% of our entire HS staff is made up of coaches, which causes difficulties with scheduling and availability of classes. We currently have one period of band, 6 periods of art, one period of dance, and one period of theater arts for our fine arts credits. I would like to see more fine arts added -- possibly even a UIL period where students who are interested in academic UIL can practice without jeopardizing their sports or other after-school practices. I have personally seen very few parents involved at the HS level. We have a sports booster club, but no other booster clubs that I know of, and in four years I have never seen a parent volunteer anything during school hours. Our school spirit is up, however!

Godley I.S>D. schools are great from Elementary to Highschool where I have children in every school. The principals, and teachers have been just helpfull, understanding, and kind. Sorry that the others have not had good luck, but I am very Thankfull. I was a mother moving here 5 yrs ago with 4 children alone from way up North, Not wealthy at all and knowing nobody, and the school helped my children greatly in reading and with speech. I Say Godley is a great place to live and most deffinantly praise the teachers and principals for there hard efforts. I say raise your kids with good morals and values, keep in contact with your teacher in your childs education,and be consistant. Its a small community with a big heart. Hail Hail to Godley I.S.D.

I think Godley high schoool seems to be more interested in the students' appearences rather than their education. I think there's a good level of parental involvement but the music and art availability could improve and advance.

The high school seems to be more concerned with the boys dress code and let the girls dress code completely slide as long as you have the right last name or participate in the correct sport and good luck finding out what they are. I believe there are alot of predjuices and corruption within the high school. Many unqualified teachers and a strong inability to handle learning disabled children. IE: a child with ADHD I was told their disability was not a factor it was their inablity to pay attention and stay on track? the definition of ADHD? If your child is interested in sports well the founding families have filled those positions.

Overall Godley has been good for my children. I would like to say that the high school needs better leadership from the principal. The athletic department needs to let up a little and let all students participate. Not just the coaches favorite. I have a daughter who went out for a sport and the coach told her she would not play no matter what she did. This is not right and needs to change. I know that favoritism is a major player in high school sports, but come on let all students have an opportunity.

Godley isd needs to put more emphessis on the special education depertment. The students are commonly neglected and not taken seriously. Students are not learning as much as they should to be college bound. I highly reccomend that the special education at Godley ISD be reviewed.

is it right for a school to ban some religions (satanism,wiccan) but allow christianity? i just feel that they should either ban none of the religions or ban them all. i am a christian woman but this to me is extremely offensive that some of our children are not allowed to wear a harmless pentacle to school but the christians can wear huge cross medalions. they say they ban the 'alternative' religions because it offends students but do they ever stop and think about the minority? they are just as offended by the cross as christians are about their pentacles and banning their freedom to wear religious necklaces from school only offends the minority religions even more. there are no hindus, buddhists, muslims or other religions such as that in our school but sometimes i wonder if there were i wonder if they would force the girls to unveal themselves or get rid of their veals and reveal their faces in public which goes against their religion or something like that. yes religions offend other religions it is an unevitable fact. this case is just like two children are fighting and only one child gets punished because they arent as popular as the other one. so is it right to punish minority religions? what moral lesson are they teaching us? to hate people with other religions? well this is to me seems like a bad message to send to the children.
