"You live, you learn; you love, you learn; you cry, you learn; you lose, you learn; you bleed, you learn;" --Alanis Morissette

Middle School can be best described as a time of growth, change, EXPLORATION, AND simply a period of transition. One thing that will be stable at Greenwood Middle will be teaching and learning. Teaching and learning will be the upcompromising, essential, and unyielding foundation on which all other school components will be built.

In an effort to "Maximizing Student Potential", Greenwood Middle will establish high academic, personal, and behavioral expectations for EACH student. Our goal is to establish an environment, thus, reputation for extra curricular, athletic, and academic excellence as a result of reinforcing strong worth ethics coupled with self-awareness, self-discipline, and self-exploration.

As school administrators, we are committed to setting the precedence for teaching and learning. Our charge is to meet the needs of students ages eleven through fourteen by providing a challenging curriculum, establishing high student expectations, encouraging the qualities of honesty, respect, and responsibility, and by empowering students to acquire habits of effectiveness and distinction that will propel them to exit the middle school and transition to high school on time, proficiently.

On behalf of the entire faculty and staff at Greenwood Middle, we want to welcome you to a new school year. We hope that your experience and two years at Greenwood Middle be challenging, rewarding, engaging, influential, affirmative, and most of all scholarly.
