Greenbrier High School is a 5-A high school located within the Riverwood Plantation neighborhood of Evans, Georgia, a suburb of Augusta. For the 2010–11 school year, Greenbrier High School consists of more than 1,600 students in grades 9 through 12. The school mascot is "Wolfie Wolfman" and their school colors are a deep green, gold, and white.

Coke vs. Pepsi controversy
In 1998, a senior named Mike Cameron was suspended for wearing a Pepsi work shirt on "Coke Day". This became a huge issue and garnered national attention with the incident being referenced in several books. "Coke Day" had been envisioned by the student government as a part of the school's entry into a national "Team Up With Coca-Cola" contest that bestows $10,000 upon the winning school. In the program, The Coca-Cola Company invited high schools throughout the country to show how much they liked the company.
Greenbrier High School offers a wide variety of College Prep. and Tech. Prep. classes, but as of the 2008–09 school year, there will be no difference in graduation requirements or degrees.

The class was designed specifically for future sophomores because of the increasing need for AP classes to get into Georgia's universities, most of which require two AP courses for admittance.)
