No support for special needs children to assist learning. Their only concern is to make sure the special needs child doesn't distract teachers and other students. Other schools are catching up with new ways to work with high functioning austitic children, but Greenbrier does as little as possible as cheaply as possible for these children. Unless your child can run with the wolves I wouldn't recommend this svhool, because their education and self worth will be slaughtered like a lamb.
amazing. we moved from davidson county to greenbrier for middle school sports and the quality of the school and teachers is amazing. we are very happy we moved to this community. my childs attitude has changed dramatically and is actually interested in school again. i love this school.
My last child finished this school in May. Would not recommend this school. The principal has discontinued the advanced classes (Math and English) as his philosophy is "every child is equal." Some of the teachers are quite good and really seem to care. The 8th grade teachers will give an assignment and then congregate in the hallway to talk. I would recommend a private school for middle school or researching Sumner County Schools.
We had definite reservations about sending our children to Greenbrier Middle school. We are new to the area and were concerned about the school's ability to meet our children's educational needs. We have been pleasantly surprised and fully intend to continue sending our children here. We love the new principal, Mr. Causey, and all of the teachers with whom we have interacted seem to have a vested interest in my children and their progress. Throw in a fantastic administrative staff and we are sold.
This is the worst school ever. I wish I had never even bought a home in Greenbrier. I grew up in Greenbrier and could not wait to have my children in Greenbrier Schools. Well now i regret that decision, the Principal and the assistant Principal are the rudest 2 people I have ever met!!! They act like you are bothering them if you have concerns. The office staff is the same way rude!!!!! What are we teaching our children when they see their elders act this way. The school was in better hands before the other 2 Principals came along. If you ever need a question answered its better to not call the office unless you want a smart ellic answer.
My nephew lived with me for about a year and went to Greenbrier Middle. I was very impressed with the way the teacher communicated with the parents through e-mails and regular letters. If i had a care or concern the teachers resopnded imm. and without a 'defensive attitude' My whole family had made comments on how much happier my nephew seemed and I really believe that was in large part to the positive enviroment at his school. School spirit is sky high and teachers at the school make learning fun while still holding children responsible and accountable for their actions. I have nothing but praise for this small town school!!!
I think overall Greenbrier Middle School is a good school. The music department is less than desireable and the front office is less than desireable. However, I do think that the teachers themselves make this school what it is. My daughter is so much happier here than she was at White House and she talks more about her teachers in a positive way than she ever did about teachers at White House. So I say kudos to the teachers who take time to interact with the kids at GMS and who find creative ways to get the kids to interact in class, you all make the difference here. For that I thank you!
We transfered from another school district and regret moving to the area. While signing up child for new school, secretary gave me papers and left for the day! Don't even attempt to pick up your child after school. There is NO organization, kids are running everywhere, cars are everywhere. Have seen 3 fights with kids in front of the school on school property during the two times I picked my child up. The one time we had a family emergency and I had to leave a message for my child to call home, the office argued with me about it, and never relayed the message. I have never in my life seen such disorganization and lack of concern. Office staff have always been rude, and I have been told by every other parent i have met that it is always this way.
