Greenville County Schools' Parent Portal is an online gateway for parents to information about their child's education.
Parents must have an access ID and password to obtain their children’s school information. Because this information is sensitive, parents must pick up the access ID and password in person at their child’s school and show proper identification. The school will not email, mail or provide the information over the phone.
All grades for your student will be posted within seven (7) calendar days from the date the assignment/assessment is collected. Major projects and lengthy term papers will have grades posted within fourteen (14) calendar days of collecting the assignment.
Philosophy, Mission, and Vision
The Travelers Rest High School community believes that the high school program should prepare every student to live and compete in a global society, setting academic standards within a curriculum appropriate for each student, and provide a learning climate of order, safety, respect, and purpose.
We exist to educate students both academically and socially so that they become responsible citizens of our local and global community.
The faculty and staff see Travelers Rest High School not as an end but as a beginning of a journey toward enlightenment.
GCS Security Plan and Law Enforcement Partnerships
(2/23/2018 / GCS Press Release)
Since last week, we have received many questions from parents about security measures designed to protect students in Greenville County Schools. We have also dealt with extensive rumors of threats this week, most of which have been tracked through social media to other states.
Greenville County Schools has a strong partnership with local law enforcement that includes an Office of School Enforcement, staffed with Greenville County Sheriff’s Office deputies. Every middle and high school has a School Resource Officer (SRO) assigned to and housed at the school. Zoned Security Patrols visit every elementary school and center several times during the school day and randomize those visits so they are not predictable. Law enforcement officers also conduct unannounced security breach tests on schools and provide the results to the district. Additionally, law enforcement personnel routinely use our school parking lots as “offices,” completing paperwork and other duties, while providing an additional level of security and acting as a deterrent.

Alive at 25 is an early intervention program developed by the National Safety Council to prevent traffic violations, collisions, and fatalities. It is a 4 ½ hour defensive driving course that addresses the dangers of speeding, failure to use seatbelts, using cell phones while driving, eating while driving, driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs, and more. It focuses on the behaviors that young drivers exhibit behind the wheel, and allows the student to recognize the consequences of those actions. Completion of the program is required for any student that parks on campus.
