    "The staff there doesn't seem to want to help you graduate (besides a good few and by that I mean like 4). All of the teachers play favorites which is really unfair. And also if there is a major problem the principal just treats it like we are playing a game of candy land instead of taking care of the problem. I think something they could do is care about all of the students equally."

    "I had a very involved experience at Greencastle. I was in the Latin Club, went to Area 30, played tennis and volleyball, and was also a wrestling manager."

    "My experience at GHS has really been overall great! Now, as a senior, my teachers make a real effort and definitely are interested in my extracurriculars and life outside of school. I do have a lot of homework each night, but nothing that isn't manageable while doing a sport. The athletic department is incredible and definitely a strength of the school - athletes are respected and given the abilities to improve and accomplish what they hope for. There are also a ton of clubs and academic teams to be a part of (and we've claimed 1st place for division 3 academic teams several times in the past decade, too!). Overall, great, but there can be feelings of time being wasted sometimes, but that is something you run into at every school, I believe."

    "Greencastle High School provided a basic small town high school experience. The only difference was that we had a career center down the road, which actually showed us what the real world was like. Sure, the sports were great, but I learned and experienced more at Area 30."

    "In my time at GHS, sometimes it seemed that the teachers were helpful and engaged in their students thoughts, while other times, they seemed almost distant. its your average small town school: sports triumphs over all the rest. The only reason I strayed off the beaten path into the automotive world was because of our career center, Area 30, which I strived to go to. Sometimes I consider my two years there as more learning experience than what I received at GHS."
