Greeneville City Schools and Bristol Tennessee City Schools, both high-performing school districts, have entered an exciting new partnership to provide a full K-12 online learning experience through Tennessee Online Public Schools (TOPS). TOPS@Greeneville will be the only online option for Greeneville City students for the 2021-2022 school year.
TOPS, a three-time Reward School in the state of Tennessee, began providing a quality high school program statewide in 2012. Through this unique partnership, TOPS@Greeneville is expanding to offer the same exceptional level of online education for elementary and middle school students.
At the elementary level, TOPS@Greeneville is collaborating with the Early Childhood Education Department at East Tennessee State University for continued research and application of best practices in online learning for younger students. TOPS@Greeneville offers greater flexibility and more student voice and choice than traditional learning experiences. Furthermore, students attending TOPS have the opportunity to cultivate relationships with certified and highly-qualified teachers, unlike other impersonal, online programs that have appeared across the country since the pandemic. TOPS quality instruction is designed to prepare students for life by providing the best environment for both teacher-led and self-paced work. TOPS provides a flexible schedule for students who may wish to pursue athletics, extracurricular, or career work while maintaining academic interests and successes. All Greeneville students who enroll in TOPS@Greeneville will remain students in Greeneville City Schools. Students in grades K-5 will have a full-time teacher at each grade level who will be dedicated solely to providing not only engaging instruction but also the additional level of support needed for younger learners to succeed in the online learning environment.
Middle and high school students enrolled in TOPS@Greeneville who reside within the boundaries of Greene County will be able to participate in sports and extracurricular programs at Greeneville Middle School and Greeneville High School. Application for the TOPS program is now open for students in grades K-12. To apply to be an online student through the TOPS program for the 2021-2022 school year or for more information, visit https://tops.education/applynow. The registration fee will be waived for Greeneville City Schools students by using the code Waiver2021.
