I am a parent of a 7th grader. My child is doing good in school not great, but the S S class needs a speech. I do not exclude my child from nothin. They all are children, but need to have respect for the teacher. Green Sea offers my child a great resorurce in help with subjects. Teachers and stafff are open and honest, I would like to be able to offer my time to speak in some classes to open the minds of our Green Sea Floyds Middle Students to take the time to be understanding and respect the education they have been offered.

Great school, and an outstanding and caring staff. Except... the Athletic Director is only concerned about is football, basketball, and baseball. The other sports take a backseat to those 3 activities. If a student plays one of those sports, they are expected to put other activities (National Honor Society; art club, chorus, student council, band etc.) on hold and not attend meetings or activities. The school has fixed this to a certain extent, now club meetings are held during break times, but still if there is an after school activity which interferes with the practice, students are expected to attend the practice and not do the activity. This is unfair to a student who wants to do various extra curricular activities (which is almost needed on a college application) to have to choose what they want to participate in.

I think Green Sea Floyds High School is the best school in Horry County. The teachers are great and very helpful. The students are ready to learn just about anything. Green Sea Floyds is the best ever. The principle is awesome, Dr.Hennecy you rock!

The PASS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of South Carolina. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
