    This school needs improvement on all levels beginning with some diversity in the staff and faculty. The whole school district could use a splash of the rainbow. Teachers pretending they like black music and they are 25% black does not justify diversity. This school has a mixture of cultural backgrounds. I believe it is important for students to see an image of themselves in a teaching or administrative position. Please investigate the issue. I would like to know if no one is applying they are not qualified or the applications are being thrown out? Please look into this....

    Great School. Hard working staff and the principal cares about the students. We have enjoyed experience in the Goshen Community and at the High school

    Students are pegged as trouble for merely having hyper active tendencies. Teachers pass the buck and do not take ownership for problems in class room. Principle is two faced and counselor is ready to throw any kid to the state. We were even threatened with CPS due to lunch program being inconstant at school./ our child ate breakfast and took lunch from home and the schools did anything for a buck. I hate Goshen Schools

    if you have a chil with dissabilities you are fighting a loosing battle because goshen will do the least possible for you and your child in the 19 years my son has been going goshen has done not 1 thing to help out in any way so you the parent have to be on your toes and start fighting for a high school in the goshen district so they dont send your children out to county units and tell goshen we as parents need teachers who care about our kids with disabilities noone will help you parents out there it is like banging your head agaisnt a brick wall principals the board of ed. i have talked to all of them and they just dont care and even dont know any information to give you

    As a graduate of Goshen schools myself I lived through all the bad talk about our school. I currenty have 2 gifted children attending Goshen and feel they are getting a great education as well as making live long friends. I feel that each child will take what they want to out of their education no matter what school they attend. Our teachers work hard to help every child learn but the expectation at home is where it begins.

    This is an excellent school. It provides a quality educational experience on a limited budget. There are no shananigans---kids behave or are disciplined. Special Ed and the Career Based Instruction programs are hidden jewels if this semi-rural school district. Current adminsitration is working hard to get more advanced level classes offerings.

    I rate this school a three out of five stars because the board of education is all about sports. I do agree sports is a good thing for the children but edcation should be first. The maintenance dept. should have more employees to keep the grounds looking nice. I do not understand a board that wants nothing but sports to look good. How about educating the children first!!!!!!!!!!1

    I have 3 children who attend this school and I have to say even though people may say Goshen is a bad school it's not. Goshen has many gifted attendies. The teachers and the volunteer parents are very kind and helpful. The teachers are most kind and are very helpful to all students. Goshen may have a bad reputation but the school is actually pretty good. Many of the sports teams have accelled in all aspects. The varsity football made it to the playoffs with a 9-0 record in their division for the first time since the 90's. Goshen is a very good school. Go Warriors!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Overall Goshen has great schools. I have three gifted children that attend Goshen. I would like to say thanks to all the staff principals and officials for all their hard work and dedication they put forth every day. They are what makes Goshen a great school. I would also like to thank the Goshen police department for all their involvement in the school system as well. The students are the ones that really deserve the praise though. Goshen has the best bunch of kids attending in the county. You guys rock. GO WARRIORS!

    Goshen is a great school district. Since we are a rural school people have very close friendships and are always there to help. The schools themselves have all had a face lift and ontop of that the high school is brand new. The technology is top of the line and the teachers are the best thing there. Each school has a resource officer to ensure our safety and the administration do their best to make sure the students get everything they can out of their learning experience.

    I think the Goshen community should be very proud of its schools and the level of education a student can receive. The high school especially has a strong teaching staff. And it is true that the special ed dept. at the high school will do anything they can to help a student graduate. I really don't understand one of the previous comments about kids shouldn't have to be held accountable for 'how many days they miss'. I do know that if a student will come to school and try the teachers will work hard to make sure they help the student to succeed and receive a diploma. Go Warriors.

    My family had to relocate 2004 due to my husbands employment all the way to the beatiful sunshine state Florida. We had been in Goshen for 18 yrs. and it seemed like we were on a roller coaster of decisions. Thanks to Goshen's teachings my 12 and 14 yr old has adapted very well due to the educational level my boys had received from Goshen to where they are on task with Florida's learning level. The only weakness has been that Florida's children with learning disabilities are far from par as Goshen offers. So Thank you Goshen for really working with the children when it comes to learning disabilities and I will keep fighting down here for my 1 son that has the learning disabilities. My 18 yr old daughter is still enrolled with Goshen due to her learning disability for her to successfully graduate. Thank you Goshen The Correll's

    'Goshen may recieve what you may call a 'bad rep' because it is a country school but really it is a great school as a parent of two of the students that go there I am proud to say my children go there because the stuff they are doing with the schools like building new schools and making sure Goshen has the finest in everything it makes me proud to say my kids go to this school I can see they are really trying to make a great name for themseleves I would recomend this school to any one!'

    Once you are at Goshen you may not like it but try moving away. I have went to Goshen my whole life then I moved 900 miles away and I come home crying because I hate it here and wish I was back at Goshen. People are nicer and the schools look a whole lot better! No one can say much becuase there is a lot worse than Goshen.

    Goshen has the best facilities available in Clermont County. The State and Goshen officials have worked well together to make sure the children of Goshen have the best of everthing as far as facilities go. Goshen needs to improve in the area of education and not in the area of sports. Goshen has been sports orientated as long as I can remember. Goshen would be a agreat place to learn if they would educate their principals as to why they are there!
