Green Run High School Reviews

4/5 Rating - Posted March 8, 2015
Green run has a bad reputation but my daughter has been there for both 9th and 10th grade and has had absolutely no problems I agree the score needs to be reevaluated. If you look at test scores they are pretty good.

Green Run High School is a family. Green Run has always been looked down upon by the other schools in the district for it's past; however, we are not the same school we were back then. Most students in Virginia Beach that say Green Run is a bad school have never gone to that school. The teachers here take the time to really connect with the students and they genuinely care about us. I'm not going to say that the student population is perfect because it's not, but in Green Run we stick together as a whole. I'm going to be a senior this year and I couldn't be more proud to say I'm graduating from Green Run High School.

Has be a great school . 2 graduated with honors near straight A students. Both moved on to college one with a bachelors degree and one working on a bachelors degree. 3 child first year great grades and on the number one JROTC in the state and top 8 in the nation. The school has turned a complete 180 degrees from years ago and I have lived in the district since 1987. The low rating needs to be review because it is inaccurate.

I have had the same issue. Multiple calls to the school with no response. They quote that they want parent involvement but there is a lack of follow through

Green run has one of the BEST NJROTC program in the nation! No joke ... The unit has been National Champions three time in a row, 2009, 2010, and 2011, and has participate in every State Championship as far I can remember. The unit is Very dedicated to Community, school and the student, and it offers Air Rifle team, Academic team, Athletic team (running relay track, pushup and sit-up teams), and several drill teams, and Color Guard teams. The goal of the program to teach Leadership and Citizenship and to instill self-discipline and confidence and to help the student find a career path whether is the military or college, or other. Also the school is proud of the program and supported 100%. The cadets in the program and its instructors have created a very mature learning environment for the school. Highly recommended!

Green run is (in my opinion) the best school in the beach. Unlike most of the larger schools, the teachers actually take time to get to know the students and help them out whenever they can. There's so much diversity within this school; from the students, staff, and extra curricular. When a student is actively involved with the school, they feel as if they actually do make a difference, vice being one in a crowd. It's a smaller school, so everyone pretty much knows everyone. Walking down the hall, you'll kind small groups of friends, not cliques. I feel as if i couldn't get a better education anywhere else. I'll be graduating green run with 8 ap credits under my belt, and there definitely isn't a better school to graduate from.

Green Run High School was like home to me. I had many teachers, most of whom were alumni of the school themselves, that I respected. The best part about this school was definitely the diversity. It has very strong extra curricular programs. What makes our programs strong is the involvement of the community. I will always be proud of being a stallion!

Green Run High School is the finest school in Virginia Beach area. It is not what people make it seem. The teachers there are very determining to make sure that all students do what they have to do to graduate and also pass that specific class. The teachers give you extra help in any subject that you are struggling in. They will also give the students there personal time to help them in that subject by staying back. Green Run High School is proud to have a magnificent principle that makes sure if anything is wrong with the students, school it self, parents or even teachers he will handle it right then and there. He is highly the best principle that attended to Green Run high school .He has made a change at Green Run high school. I m so happy and proud to be attending Green Run.

Green Run's Principal seems determined to clarify any misconceptions about Green Run High School, and make going to Green Run a positive experience for students and parents alike. Teachers who really seem to care about their students and the school image have had a huge impact on the school's scores and the students' attitude. My grandson who went to a private school for eight years, was afraid to go to Green Run because of the negative image and information about the school that he was getting from the media, his teachers and even his principal. But now he loves going to Green Run and this is surley reflected in his grades. Green Run is GReat!

I have had two children graduate from GRHS. I have one graduating this year, one in 2009 and an upcoming one. I have really liked GRHS. My daughters have been active in Chambers singers and thoroughly enjoyed it. I have been very happy with most of the teachers at this school. There is not a perfect school with perfect teachers anywhere. I rate GRHS up in the top ranks.

I have taught at several schools over the past 30 years. Eleven of those years were spent at GRHS. GRHS is the best kept secret in the Beach. It had a great, caring faculty and great students. There have also been some great administrators. No school is perfect. There is no such thing as perfection. The major concern I had with GRHS was the lack of parent involvement. When I say parent involvement, I don't mean coming to school when there's a problem, but taking an active part in your child's education everyday. As a parent, I would send my child to GRHS.

Green Run is such a diverse and friendly environment. The teachers are very helpful and understanding, and they are very informative. Many of the teachers are graduates of Green Run, so they put even more effort into the quality of the school. The music programs at Green Run are very good. The choirs and band have repeatedly won local and state competitions. The football team is not the greatest, but Green Run is known for its basketball and soccer teams. There are so many extra curricular activities available at GR. If your child is not interested in sports, there are academic, fun clubs to join. Also, because the school is very diverse, your child will get to know all kinds of different people with different cultures and backgrounds. This school is definitely the best there is!

My daughter is a freshman at green run now and she is also using the resource class for learning disabilities, the whole staff is been great with us from the very beginning and had no complaints about the school, I think it depends on the child and the parents to be more involved with their childs education, the staff can only do so much, we as parents need to be more involved with their education. -MP
