    This school is good as far as the teachers are concerned but the climate is terrible. The teachers are not supported by the principal. The principal is unsupportable of staff and students. This woman is the worst principal in the history of the school. You can feel the air of unhappiness when you walk through the front door. Greenwood is not a welcoming place for students teachers or staff.

    Great school teachers. Worst principal ever she is the kind of person that promise something to 6 years old kid and in the end she''s proud of not doing it and even talks about what she did and after says don't talk back you are not allowed to talk back. If she is a good principal ... good luck! I would be ashamed . Next time get someone of your own age to talk too.

    I agree worst principal ever! For her only some are good the others are not considered! Rated less than zero.

    Very unhappy due to the administration. The principal comes across as a bully. She is unwilling to see other peoples point of view. The teachers are great considering they have a such a horrible principal.

    I have had children in Greenwood for several years now and couldn't be more pleased with the teachers environment and administration. This school has helped my children excel and thrive. My children earn high marks and are working well above grade level with much thanks to their good teachers and a fantastic PTA and community of volunteers. Greenwood ES is truly a top notch school. Without hesitation I would recommend this school and its cluster to anyone looking for a great school and community.

    My daughter is Currently in 2nd grade here and we are very happy with the school. Even when we were having some issues with a teacher the principal was very responsive. The have a great readin n accelerated math program! My daughter is overall very happy here. I do feel that PE could more games but overall we are very satisfied with the school and we will be sending our youngest there for kindergarten next year.

    My child finished kindergarten and we are amazed at what she has learned. There is a warm safe and scholastically challenging environment fostered at this school and the kids are responding. This is a top notch school and a big part of an excellent school system.

    My child is struggling to learn. When she began Kindergarten I was impressed with most of the team who came together to get her what she needed. However all the great elements of that team are gone and I no longer feel as though we are partners. The principal has been a non-player. Her teacher is non-communicative. No I do not think this is a good school.

    Teachers seem dedicated and interested in the children. There is not a whole lot of differentiated instruction but the kids are learning. There is no follow-through from the principal.

    Our first-grade son loves school. The environment is welcoming for the kids and parents. I'm always impressed at the amount of parent involvement and volunteering at Greenwood.

    My second grade son has really struggled in school and all of his teachers have been phenomenal. Their dedication far exceeds any of the private schools I attended as a child.

  • (8 years ago)

    When our daughter was a 'bit' behind the admin staff really pulled together with us and fixed the issue. Being in education I can tell you this is one of the best.

    My daughter had a great experience at Greenwood. The teachers were great. The administration was okay. The prinicipal was new. The VP was not very helpful when we had a problem. Although the teachers made up for any problems we had with the administration. I would highly recommend it.
