Greenwood has some of the best and most relatable teachers I've ever seen! They're always there to help before, during, and after school. They also connect with their students really well and always explain multiple times and in different ways to make sure the students understand what is being taught.
Greenwood also has great food! The biscuits in the morning are amazing!

Greenwood high is really is a great school! The teachers care about their jobs and their students. And it's definitely the school to be at if you have any interest in the arts! It's easily the best arts department in Warren county! The school could definitely use some upgrades and more funding, but the atmosphere is great!
Greenwood High School is an amazing school for kids to go through as a high school. The school has many clubs that kids can be involved in use as student council, art club, drama club, oar club, FBLA, FCCLA, FFA, student ambassadors, and many more. There are also variety of sports that kids could get involved in like tennis, football, soccer, basketball, baseball, etc. The school has so many things to get involved in or just to have a place to fit in. The teachers there are outstanding when it comes to building strong realationships with students and making sure education is taught properly. Many high advance course are offered at that school. Of course there are some things that happens at GHS that aren't always good but for the most part everything run smoothly at GHS. The kid there tend to be just a little disrespectful towards adult but of course when a person is at that age he/she is trying to become mature young adult and all that takes time.
