Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! It is my pleasure to welcome each and every one of you to the Greer High School Freshman Academy. We are excited about providing incoming freshmen with a positive experience and help them transition into high school. Our goal is to provide an environment that helps students achieve at a high level academically, socially and emotionally. As we continue to evolve and improve, we hope that all the different stakeholders will come and support what we are trying to accomplish and assist our young people with accomplishing their goals.

The bar is set high at Greer High School. Freshmen will be expected to perform at a high level and meet an established set of standards, but will have the assistance of many wonderful people that work in our building. I would encourage our parents to reach out to your son or daughter's teachers, administrators, staff members and school counselors. We are here to help and assist in any way that we can.

This years theme is #AllAboard2024! We want to encourage our freshmen that it is vital to start high school on a positive note. When a student is not successful in the 9th grade year and has to repeat the grade, they are significantly more likely to not graduate on time and drop out. We want our students to be #AllAboard2024 and make decisions now that will have a positive impact on their life.

If you should have any questions for me, please do not hesitate to contact me via phone or email. If you have any issues with class, please reach out to those teachers to help get issues resolved. I look forward to working with all of you this year and help our students stay #AllAboard2024!

Take care,

Todd Stafford

Freshman Academy Administrator
