At least they care enough about the students to call. I am with one of the other posters, aren't they to be with the students during school hours. And many parents work anyways so they wouldn't even be reachable during normal school hours. Most high school teachers dont even care enough to call parents.

My daughter traveled out of her school zone to attend GCHS because she got accepted into the Berkeley County Arts program. She was suppose to attend Stratford High(usually considered a better school). I was initially concerned with safety, etc. but she really wanted to be in the creative writing program
... Read more and you have to go to GCHS to be in BCA. I have found the school to be very good . Maybe more AP classes, but the teachers and the administration go out of their way to help. If your child has a 504 plan then they will go above and beyond to come up with strategies to help. The BCA program itself is one of the only in the entire Charleston area and your child can audition for any the sections. They have creative writing, band, voice, dance, drama, strings, art. It's a wonderful program and a school within a school. They will get a special diploma. It just started 4 years ago. Mr. Geary in the Creative writing teacher is an awesome. My daughter has learned so much and accomplished a lot with her writing skills. Mr. Gaskins is the best too! I feel really lucky that my daughter has attended this school and had such a positive experience. The teachers and staff really care! Read less

I am a GCHS graduate. I have always been glad I went to Goose Creek because of the amazing teachers and staff. Any problems I had, or bad grades, were all my own fault.

This is in response to 'Fran Marie', a parent from NY taht is upset with GCHS. As an educator here, I take exception to the negative perception that we are 'stuck in time' with the Civil War, far from it. Our Global Studies and World History classes are exceptional. Perhaps the reason her son had to

As far as putting a stamp on a letter or charging for lockers, this is no different from hundreds of school districts around the nation. We are all in tough financial time and must maintain our facilities in unique ways. If her son is on home bound and she is dissatisfied with the quality of education her son is recieving at GCHS, then perhaps she should consider home schooling since she gained more knowledge 'up North'.
