School commodity was excellent with students and staff. Most parents volunteer on every event to bring the community together. I just wished they provided better support for sporting activities for football and basketball, lacrosse. The fees for each season athletics deparment needs a bit high. I would and will still attend sporting avents to cheer them on! I would volunteer in a heart beat with support and work with the athletic department in efforts in flexibility and allowing for students with school pride.
Our school counselors, facility staff and administrative staff is highly recommended with excellent for guidence. The staff filled students with kindness and made the years fly by. I have lots of fond memories. I rated this school very high and recommend any student that attends our school system. It is a great high school and sharing these memories will be passed along.

I think Greely is an accepting place for unique individuals, it offers an environment where authenticity is encouraged and I would like to think that there is less concern about what others think of you that there is at nearby schools. This is definitely my favorite aspect of Greely, but in terms of academics, I feel very prepared for college and alumni have expressed that they felt more prepared than their peers in college. I do think that there is a lack of diversity, which hinders the social scene at Greely and perhaps creates more of a uniform mindset. I think that is one of the improvements I would make, is to incorporate people from all kinds of backgrounds in order to create a more well-rounded environment. Another improvement I would make is to the food, there has been a major improvement in terms of healthier options but there is still a very limited amount of food for people with dietary restrictions such as vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free alternatives.
Greely High School is known for it's outstanding academics, athletics, arts and school spirit. There are always opportunities for students to try something new and push themselves. You can be as competitive as you feel comfortable. No matter your interests or personality, there is always a group of similar people who will accept your quirks with open arms. ;)

Greely has helped mold me into the person I am today. One thing that could be improved upon at school are more chances for conversation. More of a discussion on mental health. Students who I have seen taking a boatload of rigorous classes, have problems at home or just need guidance may need an extra push. Sometimes students don't know how to prioritize the right things themselves. I'd like to see more student/staff discussions on ways we can improve our school community. Perhaps on a monthly basis.

Overall, Greely is one of the top schools in the state and I am proud that I attended.
