    Both of my girls (Grade 2 and GATE Grade 4) enjoy going to school everyday. They are both very smart and are receiving a great education at the Greene Elementary School. The teachers are great! They encourage the students to do their best at all times always taking the time to work on each child individual needs.

    It seems to me that my child isn't being challenged enough at the Greene School. The problem is not enough parents get involved with their child's education so it takes longer for some kids to catch on with the classwork. It holds back the kids who have parents who care enough to teach their children on their own. Some parents beleive that its the teachers job to teach their children but its not. Teachers are there to assist parents and help create a general pattern of learning. I don't blame the school dept. for schools that don't perform well. I blame the parents.
