    "My child attended Goshen Center School (GCS) from kindergarten through sixth grade. The school is a gem. The academics are strong (as evidenced in the standardized test scores posted on this site), but what makes GCS special is how it focuses on the whole child. I've never had the sense that my daughter s teacher was handing her off to the next one and then was done with her. All of my child s teachers have traded insights about her and continue to take an interest in her progress and achievements. They root for her every step of the way. This sense of community and nurturing plays a vital role in the students ability to thrive academically. It also means that parents don't have to worry that problems will go unnoticed or unaddressed, whether it be bullying or academic anxiety or social insecurities. Perhaps most importantly, GCS s teachers have helped instill in my daughter an attitude and approach to learning and life that are critical to succeeding in and navigating the world. You can't go wrong if you send your child here."

    "Goshen is staffed by young teachers with poor knowledge of subject matter. Teachers are empowered to ignore parents concerns and thumb their noses at parents. They want to get involved with parents only when parents are praising them for doing a good job. A previous parent pointed out that teachers refuse to answer e-mails, and it is difficult to arrange a face to face meeting. They have used Sandy Hook as an excuse to keep parents and grandparents out of the school building. Teachers think they re doing a good job, but standardized test scores are disappointing for a prosperous, small town school with low student teacher ratios. They don t teach penmanship (who needs to know how to write with pencil or pen when we have computer keyboards?). They don t teach spelling (because there s always Spell Check). There is no serious math (because adults always use calculators)! They don t bother with traditional testing. I have never seen a corrected test paper or writing assignment. Goshen Center falls well short of parents' expectations. This school is a good argument for school vouchers."

    "I could not agree more with May 31, 2012 parent review. It could be a much much better school. They make enormous issues out of picking up children after school or dropping them off. They have done nothing since the Sandy Hook shootings, but spend countless amounts of time on minor issues that seem to consume all their time. The teachers through the superintendant refuse to answer e-mails or arrange face to face meetings. The school lacks leadership, the district lacks a goal. They terminate good teachers and have forced the older teachers to retire, the place is a mess and no end in sight. The old principal ruined a perfectly good school- the new principal to timid to lead."

    "My daughter attended GCS and received a wonderful education. The teachers care a great deal about each individual student. And the there is a close relationship between the school and the parents which ensures a cooperative effrot for our kids."

    "Our son has gone to GCS since Kindergarten and is now entering 6th grade. He has thoroughly enjoyed it. The teachers are highly skilled, and take a great interest in the students abilities and needs. GCS is a small school, about 200 students for a K-6 school! The principal knows each student by name, siblings, parents etc. There is a very active PTO who do alot for the student's enrichment programs."
