GMS is a school where student go to grow and excel academically as well as become connected on a Spiritual level with the Lord. This is not a school for "just Mennonites." Although the school was originally started by a group of charter members who broke apart from the public school because they decided that they could not pledge allegiance to the American flag, rather they will only pledge allegiance to Christ, our Savior. Recently, under new administration, GMS has taken great strides to become a more competitive school academically. GMS offers students K-12 with courses such as chorus, computer, Home Economics, PE, and more, including the math, science, social studies, and language arts courses that are common for students to be studying. During the month of January high school students are offered a break from normal classes and are allowed to choose from several options for the term. Options include but are not limited to: missions trips, local work projects, photography, art, etc. The school wants to see each and every student come to a lasting relationship with the Lord. The school's verse comes from Psalm 119:105, "Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light for my path."

I have attended greenwood mennonite school since kindergarden and have been given an awesome education, I have learned many life lessons that i will be able to use forever.This school has many extra academics to offer such as, bible memorizing, chior (which is my favorite), band, home ec, auto shop, and many more. My school has been around over 80 years and has been such a great blessing to our community. The beggining of last year we had a loss in enrollment which was about 50 students and before we only had about 280. and from what i am hearing we will lose the same amount this comming year. We are praying that God would help us with our finacial needs which he has. I am now a senoir and am very excited to fianally gradute and to see what God has planned for the future of our school.

My children have attended this school since second grade. I was warned before putting my children in the school that the Mennonite children would be given preferred treatment. I have found that to be untrue. Both my children were given awards and offered special parts. I have found the academics in the elementary and middle school to be challenging and of high standards. I have been impressed and amazed by the quality of the muscial performances (band and choral). Many of the moms do not work and are involved. The children are very well behaved, polite, and kind. The only negative thing I have found with this school is the communication with some of the middle school teachers. Some will email you and have excellent communication. Others are difficult to get answers from and may need several phone calls. My children love their school.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
