    This school looks like a creepy dump. I was mortified when I visited. Needless to say I would never move to this schoolzone.

    I have been amazed at Greenwood Elementary. Deborah Billups/Principal is a very dedicated and caring person and yet she is also very strict and strong in the objectives for her students and staff. She is a leader to be proud of. I moved her from the Hoover School sytem to Greenwood and have not been sorry one moment. She loves her teachers and has progressed wonderfully. She is a very smart little girl and she has not been bored. She and each of the children are taught in a way to reach their own potential.
