    So far I have found the faculty and staff to be very polite and helpful.I do think the Reech program could be more fun an 'adventure' but then again these kids aren't in elementary school anymore huh? Overall I am satisfied with the schools in the Greene County district.

    This school is a really good school but I think that the Greene County School System could put in more money into the band and focus on that just a little more so that when they get to the high school we would have a better band program and get some more scholarships out to our students that are involved in the band.
