    If feel like this is a very good school because it can prepare you well for college. I was able to get 15 COLLEGE CREDITS transferred so far due to the International Baccalaureate. I am also going to fight for some US History credits. Overall this is a top notch school and I would recommend it but the school is NOT the only one responsible for a their students success or failure rate of the school.

    My daughters were in music theatre and the sciences and participated in the honors programs at GHS. The teaching staff is made up of adults very proficient in their subject areas who are dedicated to teaching students and working to help parents shape our children into young caring individuals very prepared to face the world. I'm very impressed with the positive influences the exceptional academics and the kindness and caring for others and the whole-school community building that Goshen High School faculty stresses.

    Goshen High School has been an awesome experience for all three of my teenagers. My oldest daughter had the highest Math score her advisor had ever seen at Indiana University in Bloomington. The courses are challenging; the teachers are top-notch. GHS's music department is one of the top in the nation!

    If scores do not do a school justice that what does? Goshen scores a D- across the board in student scores violence in the school and the lack of support. There are some good teachers but I question why they stay there when GHS fails so many in just letting them 'get by' to get their Federal Funding.

    I have always been impressed with the quality education my children received and are receiving at GHS. The test scores do not do the school justice. Quality educators working hard to help all students. Impressive.

    Goshen HS school was a huge let down. While some parents have said their children have enjoyed a quality education mine has not. The administration has allowed the school to be overrun with gang-bangers & a less than ample security system. I can not recommend this school to any parents of special needs - special ed or IEP (ADD AD/HD or ODC).

    Goshen Community Schools and its educators and administrators are a consistently below average performers. Please see the link below. Goshen Community Schools http //mustang.doe.state.in.us/SEARCH/snapcorp.cfm?corp=2315 Not every child graduating from this district excels afterward.

    Goshen is an awesome school. The music program is one of the best in the state and all the teachers are very caring. The entire educational staff welcome parents to visit and observe I have done this on several occasions. Academic standards are high and the extracurricular programs are excellent. This is an excellent school for your children.
