    Greeley is a great school. I am a graduating student of 2013-2014 school year. I am pleasantly surprised to know that Greeley keeps adding new Extra-curricular activities! This school is unique I took algebra 1 in 7th grade and will take algebra 2+ this year those classes are typically taken in high-school! My experience here at Greeley has been thoroughly enjoyable.

    Greeley is great and getting better. It is one of the best on the North side. It is a wonderful option for a neighborhood public school. The staff is dedicated creative and hard working. The principal is committed to enriching the community feel of the building and to student achievement. Greeley is a fantastic choice.

    My daughter is in prek at Greeley and I have been very impressed with the curriculum her teacher and the principal. Greeley has good test scores - comparable to Nettelhorst and Disney (see the CPS website). Organized parent involvement has been lacking but it is in the works and encouraged by the principal. Greeley is a great (albeit lesser known) educational option on the north side.

    I love this school it has really been a great experience from day one. The principal is great along with all the school staff they are always caring and always greet you with a smile. This is my kids first year at Greeley my daughter was nervous at first but is now very happy at the her new school. seriously all these teacher are great. Even though Great Schools have rated Greeley at a 5 I truly believe they should update cause it's not giving Greeley half the credit.

    I love the school they are friendly inviting and dedicated to helping our children succeed. I especially love the ladies in the office they are wonderful. Although Greeley lacks after school programs as well as a good art/ music program; it seems that their main focus is the Spanish programs. I would like to see Greeley explore their options and give the kids an opportunity to join an Athletics team or band.

    I am a former student of this school and I have to say that compared to other schools this one is really special. It's true that kids make a lot of trouble but it's worth it. The music and sports aren't on such a high level however the other subjects are most definetly developed. I think this is a vey good school. It's interactive fun; the teachers are caring and really devoted to their work with kids.

    Horace Greeley Elementary School is a fairly good school but should consider much change. Gym is a very poor class that is nothing more than a 45 minute recess. With only one period of gym a week Greeley has much to be desired. Greeley has grown over the years but this is not to be credited to the principal who has done nothing but walk around the campus and speak in an unknown language. The teachers their barely help the situtation.
