About GIS

Goshen Intermediate School educates students in grades 3-5.

Dr. Matthew Wentworth, Principal

At heart, I am an elementary educator driven by the belief that education should ignite curiosity and cultivate a love for learning throughout life. At GIS, we embrace mistakes as chances to grow, building resilience in every child.

Dr. Matthew Wentworth

Erica Cruz, Assistant Principal

I am honored to join the Goshen community and work alongside passionate educators, committed parents, and talented students. I believe strong relationships are at the heart of a positive school community. My goal is to be a support for staff, students, and families to encourage an environment of collaboration and celebrate the unique talents of every student. Together, we can build a solid foundation to develop a community of lifelong learners and empower our students to reach their full potential.
