I have two grandsons attending now. One is an acedemic senior. The other is a football-basketball all star junior. Next year another grandson will be a freshman and three years later a granddaughter. It's a wonderful school.

I'm an alumni ('06) of South Greene High School, and have nothing but wonderful things to say about the school. The principal and assistant principal are outstanding, and the teachers are hands down the best in Greeneville/Greene County. I was always proud of what the school accomplished - academically and athletically - considering that Greeneville High School is the perceived "premiere" school in the region. The faculty, staff, and administrators will make sure each student is well prepared for either higher education or to participate in the workforce.

I graduated from South Greene High School in 1966, the first year of its existence. Later, I served as Assistant Principal and Principal (1978). South Greene has always been a good school with many ready graduates. Ready for higher education or ready to join the work force. In all my years of association with South Greene, I have always felt that the very best teachers and coaches work at South Greene. Many are former honor students and athletes from South Greene. Luck may have played a part in these people having the opportunity to return to the school to work, but my guess is that these people were rewarded for accomplishment by being given a choice to return.

I am a graduate from South Greene. This is an excellent school centered in a tight knit community. Atheletics is a huge part of the experience at South Greene and rightfully so with the school holding numerous state championships in girls basketball and excelling in all other sports. Although sports are a key factor at South Greene I feel that non atheletes have an excellent opportunity to obtain a great education if they are willing to work towards it. Nothing in life worth having comes easy so if you feel like you didn't get your fair share of opportunity or scholarships at this school it is your own fault from a lack of hard work.

I am a graduate of South Greene High School. I would NOT recomend that anyone send their children there on purpose unless it is for punisment; however, if your child is an all star athlete that only cares about the four years of high school atheletics they will participate in and not in an education then by all means do send them because they will feel right at home. I was fortunate enough to have parents who cared about my education so I did ok there because I studied quite a bit. I would not give credit for my education to any of the teaching staff at South Greene. Some of them act more like the teenage students rather than teachers themselves.

I just recently graduated from South Greene High School. The four years I was there were some of the best years of my life. The teachers and staff are great and caring, and the atmosphere is outstanding. In my opinion, South Greene High School is second to none.

I have just read some of the reviews and one ones that say we offer no high honors courses are not true. We have a top notch ROTC and have some of the best test sores in the state for quite a few years. I myself are an honors students.I am not an athlete and I think this is one of the best high schools inthe U.S.

I am currently a senior at South Greene High School. I did not go to one of the feeder schools, instead I moved from one of the other county elementary schools to go to South Greene because of the great reputation the school holds. I did not know a soul and the atmosphere made me feel so at home and happy with my decision. I will admit that athletes and others get special treatment; however, they only receive this treatment from certain teachers and it is by far only a few. Their honors programs are excellent, I myself, am an honor student and the honors classes have challenged and prepared me for college. They offer many high level courses, which I opted to take, and they are taught very thoroughly. I could not dream of a better school to be a student of, or graduate of. I love South Greene High.

I graduated from South Greene a few years ago. Also, I had a brother who also graduated from there. My brother and I did not like going to school there. When we were at SGHS, the students who played sports or who their parents worked there recieved special treatment. Also, the school was lacking in several programs, such as ROTC and honors programs, that some of the other high schools in the area offered. I did not enjoy my high school experience at all at SGHS and my brother did not either. I was an honor student and I feel like the lack of programs offered at SGHS hindered me from recieving help for college and the armed forces.

I just currently left South Greene to move to Lousisana, and I must say that South Greene is one of the best schools I have ever been in. They have wonderful teachers and a very caring principal. They also have a top sports program. Parents are very invloved in the school and support the sports programs fully. We also have a great music and art program, and a top moch trial team.
