To start off with my not saying the teachers are bad or anything thing to do with the academic part is bad it's the fact that, the so called "counselors" specifically Mrs. Kile, doesn't care about their students. My 8th grade year I told my counselor that I was going to do academic honors. She completely forgot I was going honors and now as a senior I had to drop to core 40 because I don't have the required classes that I should have taken in previous years. On top of that my senior wrestling season has basically ended. I was told I was ineligible until January and our sesason is done in February. The reason I'm ineligible is because my "counselor", Mrs. Kile, didn't know that you need 6 current classes in order to participate in a sport. I'm currently in 5. I'm getting punished because I tried hard through school to make my senior year easier on me but instead it turns out to be the worst year I've ever had at Greenfield Central. So if you are reading this I urge you to go to a different school because the administration does not care about their students and they only care about the high test scores so they look better on paper.

I hate this school. No one cares about the students and their futures. And when someone does apparently that's the one they fire. They fire them because it makes everyone else look bad. So done.

GCHS is a terrific school! I put three kids through there and nothing but positive experiences. I have watched my peers struggle with the private school decision for high school, especially with their kids coming out of private elementary schools, but we had no such concern with GCHS. First class teachers, great administration that is smart and caring, and an excellent education. Small town values with big city resources!

My three kids graduated from 2006-2012. They received an excellent education and have graduated and excelled at Purdue and Ball State. GCHS helped them build a terrific foundation, with a small-town feel, ethics and sensibility, but with a first-class academic resume. I have watch their friends graduate from Pharmacy Schools, enter Medical Schools, and all-around exceed as young adults. If you want to see what this school is made of, simply attend a parent-teacher night and watch the wonderful interaction of parents, kids and faculty in the halls. I love this school!

This school system is CLUELESS of what is going on when it comes to teaching, students being bullied and the massive drug use that takes place right in front of their face daily! The staff concentrate more on someone wearing a pair of jeans with a hole in the knee rather than helping any struggles that a student is facing. It is all about who knows who and who likes who that will determine the kind of experience students have. After having two children go thru Greenfield, I am disgusted with the people that make up this school system and the downright backward ways in which they operate.

We have two daughters within the greenfield school system and I must say I am very disappointed! The academics are on average but if you challenge the teachers about what they are teaching and/or how, you will get the cold shoulder. The real problem I have with the Greenfield School System is the blatant favoritism that infects the school system. The administration openly allows some students to do as they please with little to no consequences. Unfortunately, the children that are not on the "list" have a really hard time with the school environment. One of my daughters who is more outgoing had an easier time with teachers and the administration. My other daughter with ADD and a learning disability had a very hard time. We are looking into switching schools or moving away. Its very unfortunate because I know there are good students and teachers!!

I think our school is a good school for kids to go to but i juss think we should do more activities and maibe have more clubs so that students could spend time and maibe get help. I also think we should have more rally's because that motivates you and also makes school fun. I think the Caffeteria food is good but i think they should also give healthy snacks to go with our food.

The four years that I went to GCHS were probably the best four years of my life. I thought that the principals and staff were awsome. As long as you followed the rules and the attendance policy you will have no problems. The teachers are great and very professional at what they do and I feel that the teachers at GCHS do want nothing but the best for all of their students. Just for all you people out there that are making rude comments about the attendence policy think of it like this. They are getting your child ready for the real world. Do you think that an employer is going to put up with bad attendence? I tell you what I haven't found one yet that will. I feel that it is very important to prepare kids for the real world and GCHS does a fine job of doing that.

This comes 2005 graduate. I feel that Greenfield is a fine school. The people that complain about the attendance policy have not read the handbook in which the guidelines are clearly laid out. Some teachers are not always the greatest, but no one is all the time. The parents can be as involved as they wish, or if they choose not to,that is their freedom. The academic programs are of high quality and improving all the time. My only quarrel with the school is the lack of space. Our community is growing so fast that this year the freshman class out-numbersmy graduating class by 100 students. This is really out of our control. The atmosphere is generally friendly, but you can never control all students in a group as large as this. I'm disappointed when people say that they don't like the way things are done. They can change this!

Do not send your student to this school. They preach respect but do not practice it. They openly choose favorites and grant special priviledges and better grades. They do not teach tolerance as they openly let racist and homophobic comments to be stated by students without any recourse. They do have a strict attendance policy which follows most of the other schools in the nation. However, they do not try to determine if a child has an ailment that is reoccuring. The bus transportation is inadequate from elem. to high school which is why way too many parents take their kids to school. If you are within a certain distance, and it is a walk, your kid, regardless of age, has to walk. Teachers teach from their own lessons even though parents still have to pay a high book rental for out of date books. Poor school!

I am a parent of a current student GCHS. There are a few great teachers and more not so great teachers. If you are thinking about sending your kids here, please review your decision. The discipline system is a little strict, especially the attendance policy. There are a few teachers that expect you to already know the material taught. There are a few that also have very bad attitudes toward the children. They indeed do not teach the students 'I respect you, You respect me'. There have been several incidents where the Parents along with the students have feuded with the school. Overall, Unless your kid is Very motivated and pretty smart they will struggle. If your child is often ill they will be expelled. If your child expresses their opinion,repectfully , they will be harped upon by the faculty. Hard grading Scale, Srtict Attendance, Not respectful

We have had two children graduate from Greenfield Central High School. Both were academically and socially prepared for their college careers. GCHS teachers are not afraid to exercise their beliefs and allow the students and the faculty to express their belief in Jesus Christ and their faith in God. It is a great school with an emphasis on turing out students who will change the world as well as be prepared academically, socially, and physically. The faculty and administration are top notch in education as well as being wonderful people to work with. They strive for the best for their students.
