Godwin is a really great school to go to. I'm a rising Junior right now, taking multiple APs and honors classes, and I feel ready for them. No, Godwin's not very diverse, but I have never seen someone get bullied, or attacked, and people are really open to "different" people. It's really competitive, and the hallways are crowded, but the kids are friendly and the teachers really want students to learn something. It's a great school to go to, academic and socially!

Two of my kids graduated from MG with fabulous educations. No AP grants, no grade inflation like other area schools. No complaints.

Godwin is a great school! I am a rising junior--class of 2015. The only bad thing about GHS is it is VERY competitive. Also, it is a huge school--some of the classes have 35 kids in them. It is very easy to feel "lost in the system." Otherwise, Godwin is an amazing school!!

I graduated from Godwin in 2009 and this spring I took the next step and graduated from college. I honestly believe that without the solid educational foundation that I built at Godwin, I never would have succeeded to the degree that I did as an undergrad. At Godwin, I took multiple AP classes balanced with varsity sports and was also able to participate in several clubs: I was busy, but content, and by the time I left for college, I had learned how to manage my priorities on a busy schedule. The teachers were phenomenal: they pushed me in all of my classes, but were always willing to provide extra help if I asked for it. I grew into myself at Godwin, and was able to flex my creativity through the artistic license given to me in the classroom, particularly in English and the visual arts. Looking back, high school wasn't a breeze, but I would not trade my experience at Godwin for the world.
