    "Goddard Middle School has some good teachers, but it also has some really poor ones in terms of teaching and academics. The old API test scores are more of a reflection of the high socio-economic status of the surrounding neighborhoods, the low number of EL students (English learners), not the reality of the poor instruction my spouse and I saw with some teachers. Look at other middle schools in as affluent areas, and many will have students who perform better and have more varied AP courses and academic-based and community service clubs offered on campus as well. The school should focus less on non-academic social activities and more on academics, teacher training, and oversight of the teachers on campus, classroom instruction, and their curriculum. In fairness to the administration, some of the problems may be the result of California's low academic standards and ratings in terms of public education and teacher tenure."

    "My daughter has just started her second year at this school. I agree to some extent with most of the reviews here. This is an excellent school academically. Mr. Jacobsen and Mr. Osborne seem to be very involved with all the students and very approachable. There is some bullying that goes on at this school however my child has not experienced any of it. She did at the elementary school level though at Sellers. There does seem to be some favoritism - Glendora is very clique-y and it definitely translates over to the schools here and many students have parents who work for the district. Personally, I'm grateful for an academically advanced, safe, public middle school and my child is very happy going to Goddard."

    "I personally hate this school... They spend all money donated to them for staff parties instead of more teachers so, many of the kids in sixth grade advanced math had to repeat it the next year. Also, the principle and vice-principle do not try to solve your problems; they just tell you what you want to here to so they do not have to deal with you. I know this because, when my child needed to be moved to a more advanced class, he said there was a waiting list and that my child was on it. But, when my child asked her teacher, her teacher aid that there was no waiting list. HORRIBLE SCHOOL."
