GCS also has several other specialized programs, including a strong English as a New Language program that serves the needs of students whose first language is other than English.

Athletics

The athletic programs at Goshen Community Schools help students develop personal and leadership qualities such as determination, confidence, mental toughness, emotional control, and dependability. The challenges associated with competition create learning experiences for all athletes.

The educational value of athletics lies in how the athlete copes with the challenges of competitive sports. Coaches stress commitment, dedication, and hard work and work closely with the players as they face these obstacles.
