I loved the environment of the school and how readily available all teachers were at all times. The staff love helping out no matter what it may be and it was such a positive environment. I felt very safe and secure while attending school and I loved to be there. There are also lots of extra curricular options to join and without the help of teacher advisers, we wouldn't have the clubs we did. I was very happy with my four years here! I hope the best for the faculty and staff that next year will be a better year and that everyone stays happy, healthy, and safe.

Overall I had a good experience in the Green Bay School district. However, my High School experience was difficult. I experienced extreme bullying by a couple of specific students and at times felt unprotected, not listened to and dismissed. It took vandalism at my home and my parents finally having some sort of rights to be able to hold these students accountable. I unfortunately was still the focus of their bullying. In the end of my time I was still suffering with anxiety, depression and a feeling of being unsafe. I did have some wonderful teachers and the Principal was supportive. I think there needs to be better policies in place to protect the victims not the vandals. Policies that include better follow through for incidents, education for teachers and staff to address bullying, and technology bulling.
I grew up going to school and living in Green Bay Area Public School District. I went to schools both on the East side of Green Bay and the West side of Green Bay. I attended East high school two out of the four years of high school, and for the other two, I attended Southwest High. I'd have to say that East high was very much more diverse and had better performance arts, in my opinion. However, Southwest excelled in sports and academics . In fact, Southwest was named one of the best high schools. The East side is known to have more poverty, but still great people. The west side definitely consisted more of middle-upper class families who were more involved in school functions. I really enjoyed all four years of high school being in the Green Bay Area Public School District.
