Greenback School Ratings & Reviews
This school has no diversity. Anyone who tries to introduce new ideas into the student body is immediately singled out and if you don't conform to their preconceived ideas you will have a terrible experience.
Greenback School has a very laid back approach to achieve academic excellence. The student curriculum is extremely out dated and lazy. Teachers are particularly prone to adhering to favorites, especially when the student is an athlete. The school does not promote creativity or diversity, the ratio of prepared and accepted graduates for a university is at an alarming high.
I was part of the Greenback faculty from 2000 - 2008 and was proud to be identified with Greenback School. I retired in 2008 but still substitute at the school because I miss the students, teachers and staff. I taught in 3 different school before coming to GBS and I never found any of them to be as caring, resourceful, or dedicated as the Greenback faculty and staff. There are definite problems with the building but the faculty have not let them hinder teaching the students. They will go out of their way to help a student in whatever their needs are. The students at GBS are not just a number but are people who need to be taught and listened to. I am glad to be a part of the GBS family and hope that the county will soon begin to build a new school now!!!!
The teachers, and administration are very caring and it is evident that they take personal ownership in the students at Greenback. I really love the small town ethics that are still present in the school and Mr. Breedlove and Ms. Guillemet are wonderful to work with and provide great leadership to the teachers and community. I wouldnt want to send my child anywhere else
Greenback is a great school, the new principal Joey Breedlove is very astute and caring. The school does need some construction upgrades, im not sure that it even meets the fire codes now!, but dont let those issues take away from the wonderful staff and students that call this learning institution home. They normally have great football teams too!!
