While spending my entire school life at Greenfield Central, I had experienced many different types of teachers ranging from teaching styles. The overall quality of a multiple teachers had led them to my opinion on that they made great examples to students and aided them in supporting their future career while being that role model. Their knowledge in a specific subject shows up when teaching because they could connect their meanings to examples in which made it simple to understand and comprehend while processing in our minds to retain the information. The interest within students from teachers shows to be questionable that few don't want to accept student opinions while their are some that value our opinions and take that to heart to feel more impacting towards their students. The communication skills has started to decrease when we started to integrate technology into our school system the past year because people are more focused on being distracted than listening to the teachers and such. The grading overall are fair for all because they help the students be on a fair side when it comes to curbing, just like they do in college for most professors. In all, I've found this school to be always my personal favorite when it comes to teachers because with the inspiration of becoming a music major, my band director had inspired myself to work hard and helped me through to achieve what I wanted to study in the future, and this too applies to other peers that had the same influence.

I can't say enough about how great this school is. Parents, teachers, administrators, and the whole community always comes together for band, athletic, drama, any and all events! Academically you can't beat the heart and soul of my school, that I have come to know and love!

I transferred from a very small school that I had been going to my entire life to GCHS. I was nervous at first but adjusted quickly. Mainly because both the faculty and the students were very helpful and friendly. I loved all of the academics that my new school had to offer! This was the reason for my transfer. GCHS had so much more to offer! In just my Jr and Sr years I was able to acquire 14 college credits.
