School Reviews

  • Recommended September 01, 2010 - There is little dress code and the atmosphere is similiar to the schools in New Jersey. The school itself is very old and very little updates. Bathrooms are very dirty all the time. Goose Creek needs to take a step up and do some improvements to bring more decent students proud of their school. - Posted by Student/Alumni
