Greenwood High School Reviews

Personally, My school has a lot pride and faith in their students. Also, they invest in the student athletes and scholars to reward them for their achievements. The school motto is “no child left behind” which includes paying for dual enrollment classes for the upperclassmen and after school tutoring for those who need help in certain subjects. Sometimes, the administration and staff will have monthly meetings with the parents to update information about current events and status/importance of their child’s level of learning.

I am currently a senior at Greenwood High School. These years haven't been easy but I managed to make it through. I currently had good grades(A-B) and no discipline problems. Attendance is key at GHS. No child is left behind. I have passed all my State tests Algebra1, English 2, Biology, and U.S.History. I was taking honor classes my 9th grade year. My GPA is great. I have been one of the few students selected to take college courses. GHS is really a great school. You can talk to any of the staff, the principals, your class president, or anyone about any fun activities or issues that you may have. I have experienced time with the principal Mr.Gatewood and Dr. Pulley. They made the students wanna come to school and learn. Although we really worked hard there were fun activities. We had a block party, pep Rally's, pizza for the students who did great on tests, Dress down day, Prom, Who's Who, and many great activities.
Greenwood High School is a public small high school located in the city of Greenwood. Greenwood High does not offer 5 star qualities like other schools but it offers something. Greenwood High is not the best school in the world nor is it the worst. At this school there is a lot of teacher-student/teacher-parent interaction. Students here are very kind to each other and they get along very well. A lot of students have good relationships with teachers and administrators around the school. At Greenwood High we believe that no child should be left behind.
