Going to Greenville Senior High Academy is one of the best decisions I think I have ever made. At the start of my freshmen year, I was very nervous to start High School, but Greenville Senior High goes above and beyond to help the freshmen adjust to their new environment. The environment allows students to quickly make friends and is filled with school spirit. There is a profusion of AP and Dual Credit courses offered to students, and more are being added to . There are also many resources offered to students like after-school tutoring and clubs to help students achieve academic success. Greenville Senior High also has excellent sports programs. During my time at Greenville Senior High, I have been able to take numerous AP and Dual Credit courses, challenge myself, represent the school on a varsity sports team, participate in clubs, make new friends, help raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for local charities, and most importantly learn valuable lessons that will help me succeed.

Greenville Senior High School provided me with many opportunities to advance my education. They readily prepared me for college by providing magnet courses focused in Law. I believe that the intensity of certain courses provided for preparation for college-level courses. The professors were knowledgeable on their subjects and were extremely enthusiastic about advancing their students into college or even towards a career after high school. The involvement of their alumni is exceptional and the atmosphere they create is very professional. They offer a wide variety of courses, including, magnet recognition courses in Business, Law, and Finance, AP courses, and a variety of language courses that prepare you for college.
Greenville High School is the best! While there, you are introduced to faculty that loves what they do and students that will become your best friends. This school offers many opportunities to get involved and prepares you for college well.
