Greenwood Middle School5

I love greenwood middle school. The teachers here are the best, and they do treat kids fairly. And every school has good and bad things about them, but not many are like greenwood. Are school teaches us rigt from wrong. So people can stop bad mouthing our school. Nothing is wrong about how are school handles the children. Its not the teachers that are bad its mainly the children. But its also not easy to handle 1000 teenagers. At least our school provides us with what we need and helps people that cant afford what they need. The school is handle well. Yeah, bus drivers might not be good but they get the stupents place to place. Some schools make kids pay to get on the bus. Stop talking crap about our school. Its just fine. The teahers are awesome and so are the activities. Thankyou. By gabby:)
I honestly think that Greenwood Middle School doesn't have many good qualityies that they post. I learn here and some saftey methods aren't very usefull. Favoristism and brownnosing is used consistently among students and some teachers. Many people have a huge ego that they are proud to show. Some teachers are funny and nice to be around. They also have a good disciplinary system in their class. But many teachers don't have a very good system. All-in-all, a two-star school.
I have to say that Greenwood Middle has given our child the first glimpse of negative, demeaning teachers, not the positive uplifting teachers they should be to these students of this age. Particular individuals forget that they should be positive role models with not their own agenda in mind, but the students for whom they teach. Coming from a wonderful elementary school in the district, it is hard to imagine the schools can be within 2miles apart. There are many good things about this school that are overshadowed by teacher and small town politics.
GMS is a pretty decent school. My kids are challenged and the teachers are dedicated. Be prepared for smaller school politics - especially around sports - watch out for favoritism. Guess this is probably an issue with any small school - however, the sports program is generally well-run and a good opportunity for the kids.
