Goethe has great teachers, who go the extra mile. The Principal at Goethe is kind and supportive. The whole community at Goethe really tries to make a difference for their kids. We are glad to be part of the Goethe family.

I love Goethe Elementary School because it's an even a better place for kids to learn now than it was when I went there as a student in the 70's. My daughter currently attends Goethe and she loves it. The teachers are attentive and the fact that there are still a few of the same teachers that taught ...  Read more
