Greenwich High School Reviews

I graduated from Greenwich high school and was enrolled for my junior year. It was a difficult transition for a student who had attended three previous high schools within the same year, I wish the school would have been a bit more involved in my adjustment. Additionally, during my transition, it was especially challenging regarding the "help" in class enrollment I received from my guidance counselor. Although my English placement essay was commended by the head of the English department, my counselor discouraged any aspiration i had to enroll in an AP course, rather, suggesting a basic course; I had to push for honors. The same carried forth for my other classes. At no point did I feel as though I were being uplifted and encouraged by the administration, except for the school psychologist whom I had to personally seek out. It would be refreshing for school administrators to put forth the recourses GHS provides, to ensure that everyone can manage in trying times.

I am a senior at Greenwich High School and have enjoyed my experience! The teachers, administration, and counselors are all really helpful. They are always available, for the most part. I've participated in sports and clubs, great experiences in both.
Greenwich High School is a community that embraces diversity, school spirit, and people from all kinds of different backgrounds. The size and population of the school also emulates the environment of a small college; you constantly meet new people and challenges in the community, making it so students can acclimate with ease when they go off to college. Because Greenwich High School's diverse community, there are many opportunities to find new friends and discover new parts of yourself, raising awareness of the various beliefs that exist. This school makes this possible from a young age and as a result, many globally perceptive students spread these experiences to other students who might have not had the same opportunity.
