Greenwood High School has achieved a reputation as being a leader in Kentucky education due its student academic successes, faculty and staff recognitions, restructuring efforts, innovative projects, curriculum development and re-alignment, and visionary leadership. This success has been achieved through the efforts of the principal, support staff, teachers, parents, business partnerships, and community involvement. Greenwood has been recognized as a Model School by the International Center for Leadership in Education (click here for report). Safety (Safe Schools Programs) is a Number One priority at Greenwood.
Due to increased growth in the Greenwood High School school district, the fourth high school, South Warren High School, opened in the fall of 2010 to alleviate overcrowding. After re-districting, students from Greenwood and Warren Central were assigned to attend South Warren.
