Greenfield High School Reviews
Greenfield High School is a very old school. The first thing you notice when you enter is a large gold bust of then Senator Robert F. Kennedy who presided at the opening of the school in 1956. The next is how surrounded you are with displays of school pride in sports, science, arts and memorials for students who left us so young. You are now in the home of the "Green Wave" and the cinder brick walls are painted half white and half green. But, rather then a depressing old style school, the hallways are alive with colorful, beautiful murals painted by students over the years depicting places traveled, heroes honored, events, 3D images and avant-garde art. You find yourself overwhelmed with the positive energy and creativity that comes with the countless teenaged students who have walked these walls. They have left their mark for those who will follow them. You don't immediately notice the cracks in the walls, the falling ceilings, mismatched floor tiles and lack of heat. Today, Greenfield High School breaks ground for a brand new high school to be built next to the old and we although we will mourn the loss of the original character that defined GHS for 60 years, I am proud to say that I know as we move forward so will the school spirit. The new GHS will reflect the accomplishments and soon be alive by students who will leave their mark of positive energy for those follow.
