While there are good teachers at this school, they are the exception. I witnessed multiple teachers yelling at students & belittling/embarrassing them in front of their peers & other parents. There also doesn't seem to be much organization or communication. You have to work to find out what's going ...  Read more

Well I know that my girlfriend who is a teacher there goes above and beyond all week long. I'm not talking about 8-5M-F I'm talking about nearly every single day of the week and day of the school year, trying to improve the minds of young children. But naturally there is always a few parents who want ...  Read more

My youngest started K in 2010 with a brother to follow, 4 years later, and only one great teacher, this school is a constant disappointment. Communication is obsolete between staff, and parents; no extra curricular activities are offered except in third grade, which is garden club, then band and science ...  Read more

He started out his experience at greenwood with the best pre-k teacher. As his kindergarten school year started I noticed ...  Read more

I have been impressed with this school from the very beginning of our kids participation. We moved here just a little over a year ago and have been welcomed at every event and we really enjoy the energy of the administration, teachers and staff. We couldn't be happier with the specific decision to ...  Read more

My children have been attending this school for 3 years. We will be moving this summer, mostly because of the schools. I have been disappointed with Greenwood, considering its exemplary rating. Although my children have had some sweet and caring teachers, a large portion of the teachers here are very, ...  Read more

Considering the fact that this is a public school, it's o.k. but there are definately some areas needing improvement. Lack of communication between the school and parents is a huge problem. I've missed award ceramonies and other school functions because they fail to inform parents. They do have a monthly ...  Read more

My child is in the third grade this year. Over the past 3 years she has been fortunate to have teachers who are pleasant and treat their class with respect. Her teachers past and present have been availabale to talk to us about any concerns we may have and keep us informed. We visit the school regularly ...  Read more

I am overall happy with this school. Particularly with my daughters teacher. My daughter is a special needs child in the EC Program and gets exceptional attention at this school. I have seen a complete change in her personality. She has reached my child and she has accomplished more than I expected. ...  Read more
