    i'm a student in the advanced academics program and it is terrible!At first I was dreaming of this school but the kids aren't advanced at all! In the beginning they said that I had to keep an average of a B. Or I would be kicked out but some kids get an F in every subject but they don't get kicked out.

    parents need to come more to the school to find out what goes on behind doors... to see if the school is helping your child or giving the child a hard time through the year.

    My daughter has been very happy at Greene. She is learning so much doing a lot of group projects to learn team work and has made great friends. She is also in the honors program. I'm not sure about the school as a whole but the honors program is great. I do think they could mix the kids up more. These are teachers going to the limit to push kids with very little in the way of resources and a building that is sagging around them. Thanks to you all for your hard work.

    The teachers don't seem to have the students' best interests in mind and the administrators try to weasel their way out of their responsibilities to notify parents of school performance and teacher qualifications as well as supplemental services available.
