My child is a senior and has been at Greenway all four years. As a family, we have been pleased with the school and its programs, and I would definitely give it a 'thumbs up.' The teachers overall are very good and have been responsive to questions, concerns, etc. I have found the English and history/government teachers to be excellent in their teaching skills and ability to convey the material. I have not been as impressed with the science teachers. The band and vocal directors also are quite good and well thought of within the music community. The principal is also highly regarded by the students, as well as the parents, which is remarkable. The counseling staff has an established schedule for what topics they will cover with each student individually each year (freshman, sophomore, etc.), has excellent scholarship information available for students at all levels, and seems fairly responsive to students and parents alike. There is one counselor I would not recommend, however. This individual would not return my calls in a timely manner and, in a joint meeting with me and my child, failed to acknowledge my presence in any way. As far as activities go, they are diverse and cover a wide range of interests - photography, theater, sports of all kinds (including bowling and badminton, as well as the biggies of football, basketball and baseball), language clubs, computers, etc. If a student can't find something to join, he or she is just not trying. It's been a wonderful four years, and my child and I will both miss being around campus next year.
