The whole staff are amazing, and I've meet the head principal face to face, and he is an excellent person for running a school, but I rate this establishment a 2 star because most of the student body, have a bullying issue, and the counselors at this school don't really care about the well being of us (I'm a student enrolled here, and sadly I'll be here as a sophomore in August). This is a very good school, if you just enroll your child here to learn and probably be teased and picked on, oh yea, and a chewing tobacco trend is going on too, you could literally put a "chew" in right in front of a security guard, and they still wouldn't care.

The Greenbrier East Highschool staff are really hard working and enthusiastic who do their best to flourish and thrive the future of our beloved ones. I do really appreciate their effort.

GEHS is an excellent college preparatory school that has produced academic scholars and professional athletes alike. Several of my fellow GEHS classmates graduated from UVA, Smith, and USNA to name a few. I received an MBA from the University of Richmond. I highly recommend GEHS to prospective students and their parents. GEHS provides a quality, public education with that private school experience.

I graduated from East several years ago and I dreaded going to this school for several reasons. The grading scale was unfair and if one wanted an A, he or she had to get a 94 or better just to obtain that goal. This grading scale can be tough on students who struggle with school work and tests. The school days at East ended at 3:20 and I got home around 4:00 with a load of homework. I had to devote the majority of my free time to completing the most inane homework assignments and I did not have time for a part time job after school. All in all, I would not recommend this school if you have a child that struggles with schoolwork or if you have a child that likes to work after school or get involved in extra curricular activities.

i think east is a good school. it has change a lot sence i finshed there it was a great school them .i have been back 1 time sence them

I attended this school a few years ago. At the time my graduating class was the largest to have ever gone through the system. Apparently it is being dwarfed by the classes now. The teachers did vary in their level of commitment, but you will find that anywhere. As an education major, I see every day the attitudes of teachers, students and parents. These days it seems like the students don't want to work, they want to be spoon fed the information. The parents don't want to deal with the kids and blame all their failings on the teachers. If anything about our education system is going to improve more money needs to be spent on academics and less on sports.


Posted January 14, 2009

I'm currently a student at East, we have a lot of programs, and a lot of opportunities if...you have the right last name. Everything at this school is about your name and how much money your family has to offer. Most of the teachers don't want to be there. The rules are absolutely ridiculous and they change them 3-5 days after they are put in effect. The day lasts so long, we don't get out until 3:20, for students living outside of town don't get home until 4:00-4:30, it makes it hard to have a job, or be involved in any after school activity. The classes are and hour and forty-five minutes long, most of it..wasted time. The counselors aren't very active in the students life, to talk to a counselor you have to call and call and call and call, and you might get a call back if your lucky.

I am a recent graduate, and have some to say. It's true, the teachers aren't going to babysit you. But wait until you go to college, you'll be glad. Because no one is going to babysit you at college. I feel more prepared for college than many of the people who are in my class. Also, there is no need to say that the teachers don't care if the students succeed. Monday thru Friday, there are teachers who stay until 5 or 5:30 to help your student succeed in any subject they are struggling with. If you care about your student's success, encourage them to attend this program. There's something to be said for personal responsibilty. GEHS will not hold your hand and walk you through step by step... unless you ask for it. If you want the help, there are ways to get it.


Posted November 21, 2008

The main thing I've learned about GEHS is that you have to work. There are no classes or programs that do your work for you or baby you. There are wonderful teachers and horrible teachers, but as long as you pay attention to what they say and make an effort, you can succeed. You make your education here, which I appreciate personally because I feel now like I could attend any school/college and do well. If you are worried that your kid won't be taught or pushed hard enough (which is possible), just make sure to teach your child good work and study skills.

I think that GEHS is a great School I just don't think there are enough teachers to help the very very over crowed school I know my child is struggling, and alot has to do with panic attacks, teachers not taking there time to do things to help them to able to pass.

Unsatisfactory, mostly because it is a retirement farm for a veritable army of teachers who don't do their job, don't want to be there, and frankly, don't care. Students are narrow minded, programs are poorly organized, and sports supersede academics and the arts despite the poor sports teams. Counseling services do not prepare students for college, but do more to discourage and classes are direly unequal. Teacher standards vary between the same classes and and the academic experience is very unfair. It is very good at imposing strange sets of rules, randomly, then changing them, for compliance and grant money. Overall, I wouldn't recommend it but if you want to look great on paper and think you can East is a pretty easy place to do that, just don't expect a real eduation

This school has been difficult to work with. One of my children were threatened and there was no punishment on the girl 5 years older than her. They need to get teachers that want to teach. There are too many that are waiting for retirement- tired being the operative word.

I am a student at East, and I have seen the real nitty gritty here. The truth is, this school is not so great. the clubs are not much variation in between eachother, and are only held once a month, for 45-60 minutes, and are only held in school. the parents are very poorly involved, and are pratically not involved in there childs school life at all unless they go through alot of trouble to do so. If I was a parent, I wouldnt go out of the way to avoid this school.

Greenbrier East is a wonderful school. There are numerous opportunities for help by teachers. They have a lunch tutorial program. They also have recovery school for any student failing a class. The school provides free tutoring after school for any student needing assistance.Transportation home is also provided free.

My daughter has had a reasonably good experience at East. However, with so many students enrolled, many get left behind. If your child is not a self-learner he/she will get left behind with no one willing or having the time to help.

I feel Greenbrier East is a wonderful school. I enjoy attending there, and think it is great to be a spartan

This school was unresponsive to my child's needs. I Teachers did not attend meetings or respond to my requests to talk with them. The administration also did not respond to many requests. I chose home schooling as an alternative. I moved to allow my second child to attend a school in another state.

Posted January 6, 2004

I think greenbrier east needs to get some teachers who know how to teach and are willing to help children learn and not be so hard on the homework they are there for 8 hours that is long enough. Also east is the only school I know of that lasts until 3:20 most schools get out at 2:30 I think east should too. Teenagers need a life outside of school too.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 West Virginia used the West Virginia Educational Standards Test 2 (WESTEST 2) to test students in grades 3 through 11 in reading, math and social studies, and grades 3 through 9 in science. The WESTEST 2 is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of West Virginia. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the test.

The different student groups are identified by the West Virginia Department of Education. If there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
