  • This school's policy seems to be, figure it out yourself, we don't care whether you learn, fail or drop out. The culture at this school is at the very least divided into definate cliques of kids who grew up together, there isn't any sort of diversity. At the very worst, it is over run with drug use, tabacco use, hate crimes, gang activity and is the worst kind of learning environment I have had the unfortunate experience of enrolling my yougest child. Fortunately, he only had to endure a year, if an alternative school would not have been an option, not only would he have dropped out and become involved in drug use, but he became extremely isolated and depressed in this environment. He's now doing well in the ACE program at McClain High School. The principal there is much more interested in the sucess of the students... We are very impressed. The administration at Green Mountain doesn't seem to want to be bothered.

  • Can't say enough about the support of teachers, administrators, counselors, apparently it has cleaned up since 2007, as my student transferred from a school with steroids, drinking, drugs and has found GMHS to be a great group of students and faculty

  • my best friend had to change schools in order for teachers to help him with things he didn't understand and his school counselor had met with him and with out these direct words she pretty much told him there was no use in trying to finish high school and that he was not going to graduate. He is now going to a school in Denver with as much help as he needs along with a 3.8 GPA and is planning on graduating in 2011

  • When I used to attened this school, I was placed in a program called ACE. It was a program designed to help troubled students who were at risk of not graduating on time. It was an excellent program that helped many students graduate on time and with confidence. It was designed by one of the teachers who saw the failings in the system, and wanted to find those kids who had been lost in the cracks. I know that when I graduated on time in 1999, thanks to the ACE program, the school was getting ready to close the ACE program down. I guess all the students that ACE and it's teachers helped graduate, was not important enough for the administration to keep around.

    That is ok with me, because for all the people who decided to let those certain students slip throught the cracks without a second thought..... When you are old and you need to be taken care of, all those children you let slip, will then let you fall.

    The teachers were great though. They always tried! I will never forget Mr. Townsend! (=

  • It took me 10 years, but I finally recovered from attending this lousy school. Thank goodness that I was smart enough to manage college preparation on my own, because the curriculum there wasn't worth the snot in a used kleenex. Avoid if possible!

  • Green Mountain is a nice school. I give it an A- because the teachers are great. I'm still attending Green Mountain as of now, and I have learned a lot, and have a great GPA. This is from the help of teachers, and there willingness to help and push students to try.
    I don't approve of many students at the school, because that's just how it is. Many are nice once you get to know them though.
    EVERY SCHOOL has alcohol, drugs, pregnancy, and these are the CHOICES OF YOUR CHILDREN. The school is not responsible for these decisions. This school even tried to get rid of the smoking hill to encourage no smoking.
    Every teacher I have known, I have liked. They are well organized, and they are always willing to help, and they are kind.

  • My teen fell through the cracks at this school. And I only found out through continuous pestering of his teachers and monitoring the portal. Some teachers were non-responsive to my e-mails inquiring about my teen's performance and attitude in class. I believe the attitude of the faculty at GMHS is, "help yourself or fail; we're not here to help you suceeed!" There seems to be NO connection between teachers and parents, especially if your kid is not a top performer.

  • My student informed me this week that the tenth ranked student in her junior class is getting a 3.0 (information shared with her class by a teacher).

    The students in this school clearly do not perform well but the issue is not being addressed. I do not fault the teachers. The failings of this school to provide a quality education in a safe and healthy environment are directly related to the ineptitude of the administrators that work there.

    The environment at Green Mountain is hostile - fraught with drugs, alcohol, violence, hate crimes and an incredibly high pregnancy rate. The administrators are so far below par that the students do not have a viable support system and are in no way set up to succeed.

    My dealings with this school over the past three years have been incredibly frustrating to say the very least. The students run this school - the administrators are spineless and do not care what goes on beyond the doors of their offices.

    I would recommend doing lots of research before deciding to send your child to this school.

  • I have a fun time at GM. We have a lot of fun in the Marching Band and I get a ton of support from my teachers and my friends. I can truly say that GM is an exceptional school, and I hope that I won't be transferred anywhere else!
