My name is Olivia. I am sixteen years old. I have lived in Greenwich for ten years. One of the best things about growing up in Greenwich is attending Greenwich High School. One of the reasons I love attending the high school is the education. With a course book the size of any college course book, you really cannot go wrong in choosing courses you would like to take. What truly makes these courses so interesting are the teachers. All of them have something interesting to say and really challenge the students. Greenwich High School is really something special.
