59 Parent Reviews for Greenberg Joseph School

This school is unlike your regular public school. My son, who attends Greenberg, is currently in first grade, and barely made it out of kindergarten. He is so stressed out by the work load of homework they give him, and the frequent testing that is almost everyday. I feel as though I am homeschooling ...  Read more

Excellent school for children in the gifted program. In fact, it's the all-day gifted program that gives this school it's high test scores. A decent school for non-gifted/average children, however, this is one of the worst schools for your child to attend if he/she has any type of learning disability, ...  Read more

I graduated from Greenberg in 2011. I currently attend Archbishop Ryan High School. It is in my opinion the best elementary school throughout the Philadelphia area. The teachers care about the students, and have high expectations for them. Academically, the school is an excellent place for any child. ...  Read more

My son has attended this school for seven years. I have had opportunity to meet the majority of the staff and can honestly say I have not met one teacher who did not exude the utmost enthusiasm and authentic concern for their student's education. The principal is concerned with students and not PSSA ...  Read more

The negative review two posts below is obviously completely and utterly biased against Greenberg. Greenberg is a wonderful school with a warm and welcoming community. I am a recent graduate who is attending Penn Charter, in Philadelphia. I was constantly challenged at Greenberg to do my best while still ...  Read more

There is good parent involvement and the school's location is great. I have a huge concern that the needs of special education students are not being met. If you have a special needs child you may want to consider other schools in Philadelphia.

Compared to many of the schools I've come into contact with, Joseph Greenberg school, is one of the best. That is why we chose to move up to Pine Valley, so that our children could benefit and experience all that the school and its teachers have to offer. My children are doing very well and we are ...  Read more
