James A. Green High School Reviews

James A Green High School is a great school. There are not may students, so there is a lot of time for one on one with the teachers. There are many clubs and organizations that you can participate in, and the school offers many opportunities to help students succeed after they graduate.
I’ve been going to this school since 3rd grade and it’s been alright. the teachers are pretty good and they have a good choice of classes.
There are so many racist students and teachers with disgusting opinions. This is a republican school and the republican ideas are pushed onto the students. The teachers are typically not bad at teaching, but some of them are much more qualified to teach than others. The school does not handle bullying correctly but will give someone OSS for having a juul pod. The school also has punished my friend for using an inhaler that the school did not know he had. My friend had ISS.
Growing in dolgeville was a wonderful experience, the teachers were great and I overall had a wonder full time.
I would rate my experience at James A. Green High School as very good because of the variety of clubs, sports, and the friendly staff. The variety of clubs allow students to express creativity and themselves. Examples of clubs are Student Council, Battle of the Books, and so much more. Students are also given many sports to chose from such as Soccer, Softball, and many other options. The friendly staff and helpful teachers allow for an encouraging learning environment. This school has many positive aspects and also a few negative traits. One way this high school could improve is in the diversity; the school is in a very small town with multiple traditions and can lack exposure to different ethnicities or cultures. As a smaller school, there is limited resources which leads to an average result. However, this school takes these limited resources to give the students an amazing opportunities and a great learning experience.
Our high school is a close knit school where administrators are always looking out for the students!
The teachers at this school are very good at seeing potential in kids that don't necessarily see it in themselves. Speaking for myself I'm kind of a goof off at times and didn't really think to much of my grades I pull 80s and don't put a whole lot of effort in. There are a few teachers in this school who pulled me aside and spoke 1 on 1 with me about how I'm not tapping into my full potential and I'm finally starting to believe it myself . My grades have gone down this year compared to most yet these teachers give me opportunities to benefit from my mistakes. They truly do care.
The community is small and they do not like change
Need to have more options for languages.
The school nurse is helpful if you are not feeling good. The resources are ok. The school is safe.
If I could do high school all over again, it would not be at this school. I would rather go to a bigger school in an urban setting because there are more options of school activities that are available to students. The reason that my school is unique is because the school eats, breathes and sleeps football.
Teachers and staff are very involved in helping students with their issues if they go to them or see an issue occurring. The small class sizes allow the teachers to be more involved with the students academic and personal issues. The dress code was always strictly enforced, bullying began becoming more of an eye opener for the administration if someone came forward about it. Many students however don't report bullying.
They don't accommodate for any vegetarians or vegans unless you eat a salad daily. I ended up bringing my own lunch everyday. You also aren't allowed to leave campus even if you're a senior. There isn't much variety, they would sometimes do a calzone or mac and cheese but nothing ever seemed strikingly healthy. They did have juices available very often and they also had breakfast options and a newly put in pizza area a few years ago.
There were strange scheduling hours due to the amount of gym space within the school. The school has a mandatory "fifth block" that everyone remains in school for where they can meet with teachers as well as clubs/organizations so most students didn't have to stay late if they weren't involved in a sport, but a late bus was available to athletes.
The teachers at this school overall were very good to the students who wanted to succeed. The lessons were always planned ahead of time and we had a good amount of homework to accomplish. The teachers enjoyed pushing students to prepare them for college with various projects and papers, as well as different in class discussions.
There were very, very few exchange students at this school at any given point. Any student who was even remarkably different would be picked on. If anyone in the school was to come out as gay they would never hear the end of it. Football is so important at this school that there isn't even a boy's soccer team because you were picked on if you played soccer and not football.
I really enjoyed leaving this school and experiencing the world outside the small walls of James A Green. The teachers did a great job at warning students what reality would throw at them. Very few that graduated in 2011 went to their full potential.
