This school offers a great education for the kids. Teachers are hard-working and dedicated. The school is well-balanced, giving accelerated kids the challenges they need, but also working with kids that need more attention. Great school all around.
Greenway is a school that can definitely be trusted to turn out responsible, learned students. In a district with high standards and expectations, Greenway has the highest. With few exceptions, the faculty and staff is of the highest quality and is quite helpful. I will send my children here year after year with no regrets.
Although they have a good academic program, this school is much to lax on it's codes as far as the dress code, not enforced, providing parents with info on problems with their child, none. They have kids leaving campus for lunch that never return. There are kids on campus that don't even attend the school.
My daughter is a senior at Greenway and has attended all four years. The school is torn up with construction, and has been since summer, which we keep hearing will be finished 'soon'. I have been very pleased with Greenway for the last three years, but this year the school seems much less organized, focused and managed.
Greenway is an exceptional school. I would rather have the old principal back and I do believe the school is over crowded. Plus, dangerous with all this construction going on. But I would not want to go to any other school.
The school has a great group of teachers that help and encourage the students to excel.
Greenway needs to weed out a few of the older teachers and get in some fresh, young, ambitous proffessionals.
I am very pleased with Greenway High School but I feel that the security could be more intensive. I know that there are alumni's that go to the student parking lot at lunch to visit & eat with old school mates. If they can ~ who else does or could? I would also like to see a closed campus reviewed for the safety of our children. The lunches are to short & they try to get to lunch & back in such a short time. Fortunately nothing has happen of great severity to one of our students yet! Greenway is like a big family ~ Keep up the great work!
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.
We moved our son to Phoenix and Greenway High School at the beginning of his sophomore year. Transition is never easy at age 15. We dragged him kicking and screaming across the desert from California. We chose Greenway after visiting 4 schools and interviewing the principals. More importantly, I sat outside of each school and observed the campuses on several different days.I talked with students,coaches and teachers. I was extremely impressed with Greenway in that the teachers and staff were so invested in the kids inside and outside the classroom and on the sports teams. My son is currently a very successful senior, a class leader and a sports stand out. He was accepted at 8 major universities outside of Arizona. I attribute much of his success to caring teachers, demanding but supportive coaches and administrators. There are a number of outstanding and inspiring teachers. There is a very active student run diversity awareness program that helps to foster mutual respect and understanding among the students from different backgrounds. No school is perfect, however, our experience is that when problems do arise the administration, staff and teachers are very willing to work with the parents and students to address the situation. The telling tale is that as our formerly recalcitrant son prepares to head off to college, he tells us that chosing Greenway High School was the best thing that ever happend to him.
My son transfered as a junior to Greenway. The teachers and other students went out of their way to make him feel welcome. The teachers take a genuine interest in each student and work to help each one achieve success. I feel my child will be adequately prepared for college.
