  • I am going to be a new student at Goff Junior high in less thanm 2 weeks. Some of these reviews are a bit shaky and make me a little tense, but then some sound like its a great school. I am hoping that it will be what it is telling in its home page review.

  • This is a good school! I can not wait to go there this year! I know former students who did go to Goff and loved it! However, I haven't gone to Goff yet so I'm not quite sure, but I have a feeling I know where my opinion will take place!

  • I do not agree with this school, on what my daughter is telling me. She said that "The Blue Team" is treated better than the Red Team. If that is not true she says to check on how they treat on Field Trips. It is despicable truthfully.
