Greer High School possesses MANY people that help you, care about you, and actually love you! My teachers and classmates want me to succeed in life the way I want to, and they also understand why. Everyone is willing to accept me and everyone that I know there, including the principal and faculty, care about me personally. Greer High School has helped me gain the full potential of the person that I was afraid to accept, and the same person that I am fighting with Determination to become. I love every single one of them and I have been able to open up to anybody because they love me in return when i felt so lost.

I have been a student at Greer High School for all four years of the high school career, I also attended Greer Middle School. This makes me very familiar with the atmosphere and how things are ran. Greer High School has always been very concerned with the safety of its students and faculty. There are drills constantly, especially with the recent rise of awareness of safety in schools. Greer High School has done a wonderful job with making every one of their students feel safe and comfortable in their environment. One thing I think that they could improve on is funding for school events. Most of the schools money is out into football games and the players. Evening out the funds to show equal appreciation of sports and clubs would be my only complaint for this great school.
Greer high school is a very diverse school that does not discriminate. I have not had one teacher who did not care about my education or did not love their job. We are also a school that loves our athletic teams and as a cheerleader i have seen that our students support and acknowledge our athletic players. We are also apart of one of three schools in the greenville county district that offer the IB program which gives high school juniors and seniors an opportunity to pursue college level studies while in high school and is also an international program bringing students from all over the world to Greer high school and that is why i believe my school is special.
