Its not a great school they do not follow childrens IEP'S. If they are so good they would follow these papers. This is done for a reason and it is the law. Its time parents stood there ground where this is concerned. And if you don't have money your children our treated like trash. Small schools where better schools are children learned more and wasn't pushed to the corner and left. Know child is perfect but some of are teachers sure do think they are they get A's rather they do the work just because of who there parents are. I helped in the school system and have seen this with my own eyes. I trully feel sorry for the children.

The school is obsessed with its own image. the teachers seem to be lazy and unfirmiliar with even current events. Heaven forbid if your child is not a band, sport or a Dr's child. The worst part is the councelors. Mrs. Hayse even went as far to tell 1 young man to forget about college, he only has a future in a hay field. She's the one that should be bridled and plowing a field. If we could get rid of deadbeats like her it could be a great school,although this is her last year, but unfortunately its the best we have at present time.

maybe from yourgood luck but thatschool is all about on those that make the school look good in yhe eyes of the public and could care less about those kids who need help and extra instruction i have seen so many kids due to just dont have time or just they seem to think who cares if they leave 1 less to deal with the school cares only about its image not about students and i can prove it east is far short of great and dont care because there too big to handle it

Greenbrier east is a joke. If you have money or straight A's you have no problems. If you have health or learning problems or just aren't a straight A student the don't care. You better look at these students more these are the ones that make something of themselves. While most of the straight A students never make it through college I no from experience.

All Greenbrier East is good for is it's gossip. That's the only thing kids are learning now... that and how to fight...

I go to East. It is garbage. I once through a paper down in the hallway to see if anyone would pick it up. It had bright colors on it. It stayed there for three days. That includes over the weekend. It's trashy. The teachers don't care at all. Like some other people said. If you aren't in sports and don't have a almost perfect background no one will help you. The teachers never explain anything because they are all so lazy. The school is horrible! Don't ever send your child there!

It's the student's responsibility to make the grade. You have good and bad apples in every sack as far as teachers are concerned and East is no exception. I have seen a genuine effort to improve this situation there. Can't do anything much about tenure and how it can be abused. Programs are available for students who are having academic problems. I personally feel you need to address the problem instead of just spoon-feeding the student. Some may need this much assistance and should be receiving it while others may need a foot in their a@@.

East seriously is a joke. I don't go there but I know people that go there and all they do is gossip. The girls down there are THE worst. Some of them aren't too bad but the other ones are so rude and catty. It ridiculous.

As far as I am concerned East is a joke along with Greenbrier County Board of Ed. My son has made it to East and cannot read, and can only add and subtract! All you hear is no child left behind, BULL$HIT!!! And as the person mentioned before, they have no clue what are in the IEP's for these kids because they never look! All of my sons test are to be read to him, finally after he was failing the first half so bad and I looked into it the teachers at East didn't even know this, now they want to fail him for THIER mistakes! Hes ready to quit because he can't get the help that he needs and whats sad is he really likes East!!!!!

east is all about the money. Of course I didn't get treated different because I have money but before someone even says anythin about me sayin anythin about havin money, I got treated different because of my race. I'm biracial an I had a teacher that treated me different and even mentioned in front of the whole clas she was some what raciast. I took it the wrong way. I made straight As in that class and was quit and always did my work. Teachers do gossip about kids I've heard it myself walkin down the hallway. Very unprofessional. Some teachers are wonderful. Very few though. The school is a good to school to go to overall. Be thankful that its not like schools in the city, overpopulated an your scared to walk down the hallway because your scared someone goin to hit you, slam your head against the locker, or beat the iiisshh outta you for no reason while your minding
your own. So they next time your kids say they hate east tell them its of to hate it but be thankful they go to a safe school!

not trying to start anything but some teachers are bad... but like said before each student earns their own grade and like my mom always told me if you dont understand something dont be affraid to open your mouth and ask for help... newsflash that is kinda what the teacher is there for thats what they get paid to do.. and all of the teachers i have if i ask a question they answer it and help me to better understand the work i dont have money or make straight A's i do play softball and proud to i want to make something clear about that too... JIM JUSTICE DOES NOT PUT MONEY TOWARDS THE SOFTBALL OR BASEBALL PROGRAMS!! so for all of those ppl talking shit about that you might wanna get your facts straight before yougo running your mouth but NOT ALL teachers put the popular/ rich kids first,, none that i have had in the past two years have ever put them first everyone in their classes are equal and thats how it should be. i have said my peace and im done :)

If you're reconnected with the Lewisburg beautiful people (lawyers, local power brokers or JJ cronies), then all will be fine.

Otherwise, prepare your child for cliques, bullying and teacher indifference - that is unless your kid is a stellar basketball player or a decent trumpet player...
