    My son started attending this school in October 2013 after he had started at a Catholic school we were paying a tidy sum for him to attend . Come to find out that the same curriculum we were paying for was the same they were using at SARAH G unbelievable . Mrs Brown in K1 is awesome. All the teachers are great. I will tell parents just work at home your child they can succeed and you don't necessarily have to pay a arm and a leg

    My daughter is in K-0 at the Sarah Greenwood in Karissa Mcneil class she is in her second year and I would not trust my daughter with anyone else but those teachers of her class. They have been like second parents to my daughter. They inform me on everything that she does. I can call her whenever I need. They make you feel so involved. I would recommend this school and class to anyone

    The sarah greenwood elementary school is excellent. It is a kindergarten-eigth grade school. you can enter the school at anytime. the elementary and middle school teachers are great. The fun activities for your child/children are phisical education theater class dance class science and math/technology. this school has before and after school programs for phisical activity. it also has before and after school programs for reading math and other subjects that your child maybe struggling with. The Sarah Greenwood Elementary school is one of the top school for high scores on the annual MCAS exam. some of the tests taken in the school are MCAS and SRI. the middle schoolers have to take a test test for at least every class. The teachers try their hardest too prepare the students for the test so that they are not lost or cluless when it is time to take the test. The school is great for kids from 4-14.
