I just completed my freshman year at Greenville High School. At first GHS was my first choice. Then it became the last place I wanted to go to. I applied for Wade Hampton, my number one choice, and was put on the waiting list. I applied to JL Mann, Greenville High School's rival, and was desperate to go anywhere but Greenville. In the end, Greenville was my last and only choice. I was so reluctant especially since I knew almost no one. Sooner than later I began to fall in love with Greenville. Greenville always had something for us to do. I became a true Raider and was loving it. If you want to send your child to a school with a great education and environment, you'll send your kid to GHS. You will be pleased you did. It's a promise!

My last child to go through Greenville High is a senior and I will miss being involved. It is a tremendous community of folks with alot of dedication to making sure the students - all of them - succeed. We recently had Challenge Day at GHS - more proof that the administration/PTA/parents are involved and interested in a well rounded experience. GHS really has a family atmosphere and a good education is available to every student who wants one.

I'm a student at Greenville High. I've never been to a school before that feels such like a family and where the principal greets you and each day your eager to learn. Thanks to the Great Administration.

My daughter applied to GHS due to the high rating in GHS Academic and Athletic fields. Being accepted, she is in her first year at GHS and loves the staff tremendously. Teachers are mentors and coaches coach a team. The games are always packed with parents and supporters. GHS has a fantastic standing in the community through involvement of special needs projects. Thanks to the support and encouragement of the wonderful teaching staff, the parents, the students, and our team leader 'The Principal'.
