Green Wood Charter school curiculm is challenging. My son loves learning about science. I know the teachers go beyond the call of duty and you feel all their hard work every time you enter into the school. First year kindergarten parent..

I agree with the parent who reported a lack of respect towards students. The atmosphere at the school includes a great deal of yelling and students are encouraged to behave competitively rather than cooperatively. My daughter started 1st grade this year and came home crying for the first three months ...  Read more

It is unfortunate that we have so few seats available to meet this demand, but hope to expand our program in the years to come allowing us to serve additional ...  Read more

As a current parent, I am sorry to say that I cannot give above 4 stars, and in some areas GWCS merits 3 stars.

Urban does not define a race, it means to live in a city or town, and the city of Philadelphia includes people of all ethnic backgrounds. Roxborough is not a predominantly African-American area of the city, it is diverse like Green Woods Charter School.

First I will say that I am really happy with Green Woods. My daughter comes home telling me that school is "awesome". She is getting a great foundation for later years and she is also experiencing a love of learning and a love of school at an early age, which is priceless. This is a public school, and ...  Read more

The last poster seems hellbent on besmirching the reputation of this school; I even have my doubts that their child ever actually attended. I for one did no favors for the school or them for me, and my child got in the way that every other one does...luck of the draw. If this person believes they have ...  Read more
