North Greene High School has come long way in the past couple of years. I sure know they have never handed a kid a grade. My child works hard to keep his GPA high and play sports. Tennessee has pretty much changed the expectations of all schools. North Greene scores in science and math are outstanding. The teachers work very hard with the students. The student body is very well behaved. The sports has come up in the world. Their football team has worked very hard to win runner up in their division. The girls and boys basketball teams are exceptional. The baseball team won their division last season. The girls are rebuilding. Given the lack in the system caring for North Greene in the past. This school has certainly showed them what they are made of. Very proud to have my child going here.

I am very pleased with North Greene. Many changes have been made by the current principal after previous administrators lacked discipline. State test scores are in the upper 90's and for the recent post that suggest score's are handed to students to get state funding is ridiculous. The same test are given state wide.

The school hands children their grades in order to get state and federal funding. These children are not learning what they need to know. It is a terrible educational facility. My child moved into the school from another state and is at least 2 years more advanced than these kids are. Something should be done. If we wouldn't have bought a home in the area, my child would be in another school district. I really should have checked the schools out better before moving.

I am excessively pleased with the North Greene faculty and staff. I am proud of the school's student body. They are a great group of children. I really enjoy watching the sports teams, especially the boys basketball. They should be appreciated. They hustle and they try hard. The cheereleaders this year are amazing. They are the best squad i have seen at the school in about 10 years! North Greene is a great place.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Tennessee used the Gateway/End-of-Course (EOC) exams to test high school students in language arts, math, science, and social studies upon completion of relevant courses. Students must pass the algebra I, English II, and biology I tests, called the Gateway exams, in order to graduate. The Gateway/EOC exams are standards-based tests that measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of Tennessee. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
