Greene County Tech High is a great school. I have experienced many caring educators while my daughter has been enrolled at GCT. I appreciate that they offer many AP as well as concurrent college credit classes with Arkansas State University at a really great value($40 per credit hour, and no, that is not a typo). If my daughter stays on her current track, she will graduate from this high school with over 40 hours of college credit in Math, Science, English, and History which will represent an impressive foundation for her college career as well as a huge savings on the expense of college! Also, this high school is in a new state of the art building which was opened in 2012. As a correction to this site, this high school is located at 4601 Linwood Drive(Hwy 49) in Paragould and has over 700 students in grades 10-12.

I went to Tech as a child 6th grade thru 12th grade. This school and its curriculim instilled a willingness for a higher education. I went on to College and today work in a field I am suited and enjoy. I do graphic art, illustration and painting and have a stained glass studio. I think my zeal was of course having steering in the right direction as a child. I, unlike many had a good home environment, but good teachers and a clean teaching enviroment DRUG FREE and full of many choices headed me in the direction that led me where I am today...I give credit to those who led me, backed me and stood as an example before me. The teachers at Tech did this. I appreciate it. I have purposely sent my children to Tech for an education as well.

I attended GCT from the fourth grade until the ninth grade, in which i had to move. I was so mad that I had to leave Tech, it was probably the best school that I have ever been to out of the 7 I have attended.

I attended GCT and I believe that it is a wonderful school! I am now attending College and am planning on becoming a teacher. In learning how teachers should be I have realized that's just how GCT is! If you are trying to decide on a school for your child pick GCT it's the way to be!

I have three children attending Greene County Tech Schools and I am very pleased with the academic programs, the availability of extracurricular activities, and I am always welcomed as a parent to come by the school to talk to the administration or do activities with my children.
