    My opinion about this school has changed a lot in the past 2 years. Scores have dropped and it's all because their focus is on their Visual and Performing Arts. It seems that they've lost effort to reach out to parent and their office staff seem to have a bad reputation for being grouchy. They've lost their PTO ( It's not the happy place that it used to be a few years ago.

    I think that the parent who wrote that the school is very old and outdated is confused with a different school because this school just opened in January of 2009. I just moved my daughter to this school and have another that will be starting next year. It is a very new school and the classroom size is small. The staff is very friendly and some of the teachers that are teaching here have been teaching in the district for at least 15-20 years because I had them as teachers too!

    The school is very old and outdated. The classrooms are bug infested and dirty. The playground is old and filled with dirty sand. The cafeteria is small dirty and unorganized. The school has no place for parents to park which causes a great deal of problems during drop off and pick up. The school has no security at all. There is hardly any parent involvement hence lack of funds. Nearly 85% of PTO meetings are spoken in spanish which makes it difficult for us to understand or even want to come to any meetings at all. Do yourself a favor- If you live in Greenfield and your child has to go to school beg for someone's address in Soledad and take them there instead.
