Greenbrook is a GREAT school. We have the friendliest most caring supportive teachers lead by two amazing principals. (Mr Gustavson and Mrs VanWinkle) The only problem is the PTO. Yvette Barajas and Brenda Medina have no business running school functions. They are the most unfriendly untrustworthy people I have ever met. They do not have the same attitude the staff has at Greenbrook. They are all about "what's in it for them" and the "freebies" they think they are entitled to by being a member of the PTO. I would not volunteer my time or participate in PTO functions as long as either one of them have involvement.

I'm a parent that is actively involved and I'm in the building if not everyday then every other day. The teachers and staff just go out of their way to dedicate themselves to helping the students succeed but that comes from the great principal and asst principal they have come by for a visit you won't regret I'm proud to be part of this Greenbrook family and you will be too!
I love the school the staff is so friendly and my kids love the extracurricular activities . Thanks everyone.
The staff at this school is phenomenal. I can't say enough good things about this wonderful establishment. Everyone member of this school from the janitors up to the principals are more than exceptional in their caring for these students. I've never had a problem talking with the staff or principal in regards to my concerns for any of my 4 children presently attending and when I did have a slight problem it was taken care of immediately. Overall I think a parent would be hard pressed to find a better caring loving nuturing enviroment for their children to experience. This school and staff are top notch.
This school has huge heart! The principal and vice principal are very engaged in what is going on with each child and family. The teachers are energetic enthusiastic and creative. We have a very small PTO and are in need of more participation and creative funding ideas.
I love this school. They make sure that every student can achieve a good education. They treat every sudent with respect and do the best that they can and when their best is not good enough they search for the answer to the problem. Students are taught to treat each other with respect. They have a wonderful teaching staff. They always have time to sit down and talk to a parent with any concerns. This is a wonderful school.
This school has wonderful teachers and staff. A very friendly and welcoming school. My children are getting a wonderful education. You can tell the teachers really care about their students.
More from the mom of two girls that attend Greenbrook. The school has a wonderful PBIS (Positive Behavior Incentive System) program - an incentive program for the students to maintain good behavior. Consistent throughout the school the students all know what the expectations are of them. The students can earn Gator Gotchas and redeem them for prizes. My only complaint is that there are not many clubs or activities after school for the kids (dance clubs drame clubs sports etc.). I volunteer on the PTO and we would love to have more parents involved! Get involved - come to a PTO meeting! )
Love the school. Lots of fun after school/family activities. Staff really care about the kids you can just see it! Wonderful school and staff.
From my vantage point I see Greenbrook Elementary School as a forward looking school under the guidance of Mr. T and Mr. G
