What a relief! I was anxious about my son starting public school after being in a private school but his adjustment was swift and easy! The teachers have been prompt to reply to emails and their attention is so appreciated! What a healthy, upbeat atmosphere at Greenville Middle!

Wow! I love this school. It's hands on, fun, and I'm definately learning. Dr. Palmer is dedicated to doing job and the teachers are great as well. No one I know doesn't like G.M.A. Wonderful school, definately go there!

This is an excelent school with many great teachers that can be mean, but for a good reason. Dr. Palmer (the principal) is very good at descipline and no, the school's not poor. I love it and am excited for 7th and 8th grade to come!

GMS is an outstanding school that I routinely recommend. Both my sons attended and received excellent foundations in higher math, language skills, and science. In particular, their Latin stems focus dramatically improved my sons' vocabularies as well as their performance on the SAT. In addition to excellent teachers, the principal of this school is one of the best I've ever worked with. Tremendous discipline (think no students roaming the halls), a respectful, encouraging, creative environment for both students and teachers, and very open to parent involvement.

Very caring and highly qualified faculty. Most have Master's degrees or higher. At least one teacher in each academic team is trained and uses methods of teaching gifted and talented. Students win awards at nearly all the conventions and competitions the school enters. Great athletic programs: Teams win several tournaments.

Rock solid. Good teachers; great principal. Once construction is completed (2007) facilities will be second to none.

Also why is there no construction going own. Is the school poor or somthing. They should have thought about if they had enough money before they tore the whole downstairs apart. They need to get there act together.
