    Godsman is a great neighborhood school and has been through many changes while trying to adapt to a changing community. The ECE program has always been excellent and is now expanded to four all day classrooms. Please come and tour the school and I'm sure you will be pleasantly surprised.

    There are many parents who are involved in the school. We have lots of parents who drop off their kids in the morning and who accompany classes on field trips. We also have over 200 people attend our evening activities such as Back to School Night Literacy Night and Math Night. We offer many after school tutoring programs that will begin in September. We offer academic art and athletic programs. There is also a weekly newsletter that provides information about all of the activities at Godsman.

    Godsman is a school that [very few] of the parents are involved. My child is in 1st grade (English) and I have seen about 6 sets of parents bringing their kids to school and helping out in the classroom. There are 0 extracurricular that we have found. They have some music and art but very limited.

    As a parent of Godsman.I really think they have great teachers and staff they believe that kids come first. I love the new art search for kids after school programs.
