It’s a great place for young adults to grow in their art and grow as a person. Everyone is so accepting of all kinds of people with different ideas and opinions. It’s a place where teachers, students and parents all have positive experiences. I love this place!

The governor's school holds a safe environment. The arts faculty and academic teachers are always willing to help their students. However, the residential life services fail to provide students with a true "being on your own experience". There are very strict and early curfews. Being able to go downtown and experience the city of Greenville alone is impossible. There was a pretty diverse community of students at the school. As an alumni, the administration should be more lenient in trusting students.
This school is definitely stressful and some times you feel as though the Residential Life staff's favorite activity is to annoy you. However, I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. I have made my very best friends here. The relationships I've made had surpassed any I made at the previous high school I attended. The academic teachers aren't the most qualified and it's hard to fit in everything you need to graduate; that has been a big struggle for me, so incoming students should try and get as many credits out of the way before they attend.
