Greathouse is not for everyone. My child really loves the school and the challenges. If your child has academic issues or behavior issues, Greathouse may not be the place for you as you can see from some of the other comments. The administration makes these points very clear from the beginning. Families with little discipline and structure in their homes should not be surprised when their child struggles with discipline and structure at a school such as Greathouse. One of the benefits is that it feeds into Barrett Middle School which is one of the few middle schools in the county that excel.
I agree with the two prior reviews. I feel like the school is teaching as though it is an advanced program - which it is not. They are very good at telling you what is wrong with your child but not how to solve the problem. I wish I had not based my decision to go there on the tests scores. Although, the school gets good scores, they are so lacking in most areas. Its true. All they talk about are the tests scores. My children used to love school but since attending Greathouse, they now hate it. I have found this school to unnurturing and rigid. It is their way or the highway and you are constantly reminded of this.
School administration is obsessed with standardized test scores. Mandatory homework Mon-Thurs. Strong discipline. This is a traditional school.
Greathouse is a military school. They teach our way or no way. I believe in structure and discipline but you need to know when you've gone to far. I am pulling my child from the school. They have destroyed his self confidence and individuality. The only thing the school is worried about is academic scores not the care of the children.
Not only the quality academy in this school, but also the behavior and discipline training program is restrict, which meets our philosophy of educating children. We think kids, especially bright ones, can learn a lot of academic things both at school and at home, or by themselves; then, the most important thing that we parent need to do is to help them establish responsibility and good habit to everything.
