    I have had three children attend this school and would recommend to anyone. Two of my children have ADD and the teachers staff and councelors have worked with them tremendously. Not only with their learning abilities but also with self asteem and skills that they need to succeed in life. I give this school 5 stars! Greenwood Gators Rock!!!

    This school is great. Everyone affiliated with this school is truly dedicated to the education of young people. It is a safe and fun learning environment. My 1st grader loves to go to school everyday. He even wanted to go this summer since he had such a great experience in Kindergarten.

I could'nt ask for a better school.. Just wish the parking lot was larger! Not enough parking for school events.
