Greenville High Spirit Week
September 3rd – 10th, 2021
Our mission is to foster excellence by empowering students to become critical thinkers, productive citizens, and lifelong learners. Academically grounded and motivated for success, today’s graduates are well-prepared to enter the workforce or to attend the finest colleges and universities across the nation. Pride in the community and in its heritage permeates the school.
The philosophy of Greenville High School rests on faith and hope. We share faith that our students will benefit from the knowledge, skills, and values that we teach. We share the hope that our students will use this knowledge for responsible choice making.
We believe that the educational program should respond to the individual student’s life and to the issues that concern, excite, and engage the student in the curriculum.
We believe the teaching task is to help the student know and to encourage the expression of his knowledge.
We believe we can provide context and support for the acquisition of knowledge.
YMCA Judson Community Center
The YMCA Judson Community Center is a local charity, part of an integral part of the Judson community, just a mile from Greenville High School. Many of the teens who have been served at our center are now Red Raiders! Our Judson Community Center follows in the YMCA of Greenville principles, serving those who need to be served –– it is safety after school, critical childcare for preschool-aged children, or a meal so the child does not go home hungry. This center is located near downtown Greenville, but it is far in many ways from the thriving and growing place that appears in magazines and advertising. In Judson, the median income of around $20,000 means that more than 41% of the residents live below the poverty line. Many working families cannot afford the basic necessities, such as childcare or even consistent food to eat. This is where the Judson Community Center steps in, caring for children of every age from preschoolers to teens and young adults, every socio-economic background, and of all races, sexual orientations, cultural backgrounds, and religions. The staff work to strengthen our community and to improve the lives of everyone who comes through their doors, along with those outside the walls of our branches and in the neighborhoods through programs uch as partnering to provide food each week to hungry residents. In the past year, we have seen the Y can serve emergency needs in a crisis, including providing emergency childcare to struggling families and food relief to those who are hungry. Our commitment is to make sure everyone can be served, and no one is turned away due to inability to pay. That mission, which dates back more than 100 years of the Y’s history in Greenville, is rooted in everything we do, as we share values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility.
