This school stinks! The class quality is horrible and the curriculum is unstructured. No students like to engage into extracurricular activities so they cancel the activities! They only care about athletics, not academics.. They do not give awards to people who deserve it. Their facilities are never clean. I go to Godby and I have never seen soap in the bathrooms. ANd last but not least, they could really care less about parent involvement.. This school is unacceptable for me and any other human being, but this school is perfect for rats and roaches since I have seen them roaming around in the gym.
