They push anti-bullying but they do nothing about actual bullying. There is a lot of beautiful diversity but it is ignored; the arts get absolutely no money and work hard and as soon as they get noticed, something sports related takes over even though from what I understand, all of our teams suck. Every time there is an administrator that is nice and tries to do what's best for the kids they get moved to another school just as they have started to build relationships with the kids. The middle school arts programs are cliquey and don't allow for music diversity either.
It's what people think about when they think of a harsh, bible belt, ghetto school where it doesn't matter how creative or smart or how hard you work, it only matters if the teachers like you and if you look like everyone else, if you fit into a clique.

Education was high quality overall but there were a few things that hindered me from showing my fullest. A few of them being the student to teacher ratio. I've been in several classes where there were not enough seats for all of the students. Another thing that hindered me from showing my fullest would be the internet availability. Several websites were blocked when I needed to do research. Overall Greenwood High was fun and helpful majority of the time but there were a few things that could have been better.
Everyone is very helpful! So many memories can be made, so many friendly people! The staff is very caring and supportive.
