I have send emails faxes letters and meetings with the principal and he said that the the school don't have enough funds to cover such special classes. the school is just a block and a half from my house that is why I take there this is the last year I'm sending my kids there

    Great school my daughter has been attending G.P.E.S. since pre-kindergarten and she love it special her teacher Ms. Austin the only thing you need to improve is the security.

    I attended Greynolds 4-5 grade I graduated in 1995 but things have changed since my 6 yr old attends there now but I'm unsatisfied with the school. We send our children with lots of supplies in the beginning of the school year. My child's teachers keep sending notes home saying she's unprepared. I don't understand where did the supplies we sent all go.

    I love Greynolds Park.!!!!!!! 4 years ago that my older child began to receive not only the best education if not also the support of teachers throughout these 4 years.

    I love the Greynolds because is a great school the teacher and all staff they listen and paid attention to the students and necesity to each parents and is a good school and we has good comunication.

    The school right now is in need of a make over and security. Anyone has access to the school grounds where our children are and I for the first time picked up my son from parent pick (hes aftercare) and there was no one watching the kids. This is extremely dangerous. We leave our kids in your hands and when no one is watching them something could happen. Please!!!!! improve your security!!!!!!

    Current administration does not care for the students parents or physical appearance of the school. The school grounds are filthy. It's a shame. This had been such a beautiful school in the past.

  • (5 years ago)

    I like the School but the only that you need to improve is the security because all doors are open at any time and this is not safe for our kids.

    My (our) experience with greynolds park is that the staff puts the student first and with every possible resource the curruculum is presented in the self-confidence building format so that basic tools for life are gained earned therefore the student develops an appetite for learning. The result a young person with superior self-esteem and balanced respect for others in the community and the world. ten stars would be closer to the gratitude for the dedication of those responsible. Sincerely D. Hutchens

    Greynolds Park Elementary is a top knotch school with excellent administrators and teachers. I have lived in the neighborhood since 1977 and have seen many changes in the school. My children and grandchildren have been given a wonderful education from this school but more imporantly they have been made to feel safe and loved in their school environment. Who could ask for more?!

    I am extremely impressed with the progress that GPES has made over the past couple years. Past Principal Bernard Osborn his staff of teachers para-professionals and the students have all done and extraordinary job with school improvement in every sense - FCAT Scores (GPES now an 'A' school) Increase in the Reading Writing & Math achievement levels continued yearly progress & meeting of proficiency targets EESAC guidance Increased Parental Involvement the beautification of the premises comradery diversity of its students workshops physical fitness programs ESOL PTA academic excellence programs fundraising etc. Current Principal Dr. Alice Quarles not only carries on the legacy but takes it a couple steps further by being actively involved and present at every event securing only the best teachers & staff and striving for continuous improvement with the school improvement plan goals and education for our children. Keep up the good work GPES!

    I am very satisfied with Greynolds Park Elm. I have witnessed the progress the school has made throughout the years. I attended Greynolds and now my son attends. As a student I felt the teachers went far & beyond for the students and as a mother I still feel the same. I love the fact the school holds technology and new ways of learning as priorities. They are always working to improve. The staff is always friendly! Very safe as well. I highly recommend this school especially to the parents of children of different backgrounds.

    I live in the neighborhood where this school is located and I must say that I have heard nothing but the most positive things about the faculty and staff. Furthermore this school demographics show ethnic and cultural diversities that you usually don't find in South Florida. As a mother of two pre-schoolers I have invested time in finding out about this school's credentials and for the moment I feel at ease knowing that my children are coming to this school.
