Words from Our Community
"I try to connect with parents by establishing that communication on the front end. I try to communicate effectively by ensuring I'm constantly making those phone calls when there's something positive to say, 'Hey today was a great day for your child. You should be excited about what's to come.'"
"Bluff City is a great school. It's a small school and it's a growing school. The teachers here love each and every one of their children. It's hands on. They know their children by face and name, and no one is a number."
"If there's a student who needs anything, we do our best to make sure we fulfill that need to remove that academic burden. We do everything in our power to keep them in the building. We don't turn our backs on them. We want to make sure that we can serve that kids as best we can prior to them graduating."
Bluff City High School will open August 2017, starting with our first 9th grade class, and will roll up to a full 9-12th grade high school over the next three years.
The work of Green Dot Public Schools is driven by our unwavering belief in the potential of ALL students, eliminating barriers to learning and continuously striving for student success. We believe every student in every community deserves to go to a great school. We are thrilled to welcome our first class of 9th grade students in August 2017.
