I have been going to Goldsboro for 2 years and you can clearly see the troubles my school deals with. There are fights almost every week and gang violence leas into our school. Suprisingly, a lot of the troubles come from the freshman for, they have realized there is no school discipline at my school. A lot of the teachers and counselors are not much, especially if it is not related to their exact school work. No help on schplans hips for seniors or anything. Goldsboro high school does have a couple of good aspects though. The clubs are amazing for kids who really want to learn and become a active member in their community. Sports are okay but, there is a lack of money needed for sporting equipment. Goldsboro need's help soon because I truly believe they are destined to be shut down.

Teachers often shoot students down before give a shot to succeed. Every student is treated as if they have no potential. Only when the student shows that they have something special do they get treated with respect, but those who have fallen are often forgotten and pushed through high school, just to make the graduation rate look good.

Although some teachers aren't great with get along with students, they still use their teaching skills to help students to pass the class. They don't quit on students, they are very respectable, and they cancel out their time to stay after-school to help those in need.
