    "I did not enjoy my years as a student at Barry Goldwater High School. The education system is ridiculous and the staffs are helpless unless you are those popular kids that are always talkative and in sports. When I took APUSH, all the teacher did was test us on existing test packets that you can find online, so students just memorized answers to pass that class. When I took AP Gov't, the teacher didn't even finish half of the remaining chapters and gave us an open book final exam. When I took AP English, the teacher did not teach any concepts relating to english composition and just chat with talkative students and made us read essays and write essays and grades in a bias manner. When I emailed my counselor about financial aid concerns for college she never replied. I did not know how to file the fafsa and search youtube videos on how to do it because the counselors didn't care. Barry Goldwater is a biased school that only favorites middle class outgoing talkative students. And most students only come to the this school to socialize, make friends, or such. This school also waster tons of money for pointless remodeling when it can use it to give scholarships or improve the staffs."

    "This school has a bad grading system and ridiculous standards that they grade by. Only about half of the teachers actually do their job. I am EXTREMELY disappointed."

    "We love BGHS! So happy to have 2 students there this year! We chose BGHS instead of our home school. If a student/parent shows initiative and asks for help, it's always available. The only thing that prevents me from giving them 5 stars is the grading system. They are now doing standards based grades and while it makes sense, there is very little consistency among teachers and the online gradebook doesn't always reflect what is actually the students status."
