It is the desire that SOUTH GREENE HIGH SCHOOL provide learning opportunities and experiences, which meet the need and maximize the potential of all students in a positive, safe learning environment that stimulates intellectual curiosity, commitment, and academic achievement. Our goal is to instill positive principles, habits and attitudes conducive to good physical and mental health; promote an acceptable self-concept and work ethic necessary for productive citizenship, and foster respect for the environment and the individual differences that exist among people.
We believe that high student performance is a shared responsibility for parents, staff and students.
