Greenwood School District Reviews
Greenwood School District, for a small town, is actually excellent. It provides a sufficient amount of opportunities for students to succeed. The school district is the reason why we chose to live in Greenwood in the first place rather than in the larger Fort Smith area. The only thing I can complain about is the lack of diversity. All of the teachers, as well as most of the students, are white. In addition, it seems that the schools of Greenwood love to promote Protestantism and there is a lack of understanding of people of different faiths. Other than that, Greenwood is an amazing school district!
I was one of the few Asians in my graduating classes and have been going here ever since kindergarten. I never felt discriminated by my teachers and the administrators for my race and made friends pretty well throughout of school career. The education was pretty good to me, but I can't say much because I've never been to another school district, but I enjoyed my time here! I just graduated and I'm glad I was a Greenwood Bulldog. Recommend it if sports is important to your family and if education is important. I was also in the band for a bit and the band program is great. I loved my instructors and they made it fun during my time with them. Recommend this district 100%!
My favorite part of Greenwood High School is how respectful and qualified the concurrent course teachers are. Most concurrent classes are taught by teachers who already work on our campus who have been certified to teach the class by the local college. Having qualified high school teachers be able to teach these upper level classes is great because not only are these teachers available throughout the day, but they are also a stronger part of the school community then say an off campus professor only at the school for a period or two. Despite the great opportunities offered by the school , there is one main hindrance. This would be the lack of involvement the counselors and advisers take in helping students plan and understand their after high school opportunities. While this school offers great programs and teachers to get ahead of the game in college level classes , it falls short in providing direction and understanding for what paths lay ahead of the high school turn.
