I dislike the way the principles take their job over borard. The do not heve the right to ask student for hugs, and they also need to listen to the students more. That is also part of their job. Let the students get a word out for once.

The new principal communicates on a weekly basis with parents about academic and extracurricular events at the school. He and his staff are constantly monitoring instruction...they are in and out of classrooms daily. They are also visible in the hallways to ensure that the students move about safely and quickly resolve any issues that may arise. I believe that this school is the best school in the county because of all the programs that are offered from Dual Enrollment to many AP classes.

Greenville High School is the best high school in the county. They offer dual enrollment classes for juniors and seniors to start their college careers, as well as a diverse list of clubs and activities for the students to participate in.

This school has such an upside. The faculty and staff are working hard for ALL kids! Currently AP course offerings are being expanded, a school-wide reading initiative has been implemented this year (08-09), and discipline referrals have been cut in half! Greenville High School is on the rise! If you live in Butler County or are thinking about moving here, you should check out all the great things going on at GHS!

As a former teacher of Greenville High School, I was very unsatified with how Dr. Murphy conducted herself. She wasn't supportive of the teachers and treated teachers like children and the students were disrespectful and disruptive.


Posted January 28, 2008

This school doesn't understand students at all! Most of the teachers act like they don't care except for a handful like Mrs.Jarzyniecki, Mrs.Huggins, Mrs.Faulk, and Mrs. McDonald.

Greenville High School is getting the best football coach in the state! You're going to love Bryant Vincent and what he will do for your football program and your players! Mother of Coach Vincent's last QB

I am a former student, The only thing I didn't like about this school. Is the teachers didn't seem to care about my education as much as they should have. They had an outstanding JROTC program, Band, Football, and cheerleeding team. It was a fun school to go to. And I especially loved reading the 'Tiger Journal' Cassandra 'Cassie' Cooper

I think the school needs a big change in there football and baseball programs!

I think that the school is great no matter what. more people should bring their children to attend this school.

Posted August 25, 2003

I'm not a a parent, but I am a former student of Greenville High. My comments are to the termination of the JROTC program at the end of the school year. Being a former student and cadet of the program, I have to stay it really change and inspired my life for the best. If you check my grades from 9th-12th you would see an improvement as each year past. They taught me confidence, respect, responsibility, a sense of duty, values, and time management. Without those skills I would not be the man I am today. I also feel that the program mentors young teens in the right direction, by giving teens the ability to succeed in life at anything the decide to do, whether it's college or the military or wherever life may take them. -Richard B.
