    "Greenfield is a great school in the heart of the city. Principal has demonstrated that he understands children & the importance of being accessible to parents. He works hard to ensure a safe, fun, educational, inviting environment for families. He does a good job of incorporating district initiatives, while maintaining a sense of responsibility of parents/ staff to do our part to ensure students fare well. He will roll his sleeves up...literally & use a hands on approach. Because our principal understands the value/ necessity of parent/ comm. engagement, he does a great job of allowing for a strong home/ school assoc. with recognized roles/input. Programs serving children, such as after school/ extra curricular activities know this is a school where parents/ students & staff want what's best for children. Children enjoy a welcoming/ respectful as students, while understanding the expectation for appropriate behavior & valiant academic efforts for themselves. My son has had teachers who helped to improve his overall academic skills for the past 4 years. Here, I know $5,000.00 would be put to good use for the benefit of the students going forth. Vote for Greenfield!"

    "My son and I were very excited about first grade, but that excitement was quickly shattered. As soon as I picked him up from school he,tearfully, began telling me how the teacher yells at all the boys. This little kid has never had disciplinary issues and has come a long way socially. My fear is that he will shut down and not communicate effectively with his teacher out of fear. I'm hoping that she will take the time to get to know her students and learn how to communicate without making them afraid to come to school. I'm all for being firm with children and I do understand that some children respond to yelling, however my son does not. I have never had this issue with his pre-school or kindergarten teachers of the past. We raise our children to be respectful and obedient, this does not mean that an occasional re-direction is never needed, but it never takes yealling to get a point across to this kid. Hopefully the principal takes a look at these reviews and address some of the concerns. I would like to add that the Principal is amazing."

    "Excellent school. Lower school is exceptional, and middle school is very good and getting better each and every year. Unlike Penn Alexander, which has let parents camp out in January nights in years past to secure spots for their kids before switching to lottery, Greenfield's principal has opened FIVE new classrooms in lower school (so now there are 3 classrooms each in K-4) since the fall of 2009 to accommodate increasing numbers of students. All the new teachers he hired are truly excellent. Dedicated teachers (yes, there is quite a bit of homework and projects), extraordinary parental commitment, and students who work very hard are all factors that make Greenfield a terrific school. May not be a school for everyone - enroll your kids here if you want them to learn and be challenged to give their very best. However, if you as a parent expect that you need to drop off and pick up and the school will do the rest, you might be better off at a private school."
