School Official Point of View

Posted Monday, July 7, 2014

Proud to be the Arizona Dept. of Education 2014 Spotlight on Innovation Award winner. While this reflects the changes and innovation in our classrooms it is only part of the Cougar Nation Experience. Come see our dance academy, choir, rock band, step team or championship sports teams in action to really experience COUGAR NATION. Now in my 14th year at Greenfield I can say this is a GREAT PLACE to go to school. COUGAR PRIDE.

Greenfield is a great School but no one gives them a chance to see how great they are. The kids are great if only the parents and people around would think this but just because people say 'He came from Greenfield' doesnt mean we can't accomplish anything and alot of people say they are the kids of tomorrow but no we are the kids of today!

This school is again out of control. There is no discipline and our kids are not safe. It is time to get a principal that will protect our kids. We are failing again. Where is the district?

I am a parent and do not understand why we should have to buy students uniforms and clothes I think uniforms should be provided. And I think if the students have to wear uniforms then so should the teachers and staff they need to also focus on how short the girls wear there skirts to school instead of who has untucked shirts and I also think the teachers should take time out to explain the homework to the children, and if theres a problem with a student the teacher should send the child to the office instead of allowing that student to disrupt the class. Also I really think the restrooms in the school could be cleaner and have soap to wash your hands thats really nasty knowin the children dont have soap in the restrooms and the classes could be more cleaner. The staff could be friendlier.

There are some excellent teachers who work extremely hard at Greenfield. Their 8th grade Social Studies teacher fund raised money to take students on an all expenses paid trip to Washington, D.C. this year.

In my experience, C.O Greenfield School has made dramatic miprovements, especially in the culture of the school. Student Council has had many student oriented activities and fund raisers. The Wake Up Club has been a huge success with the dedication of the SRO, the students have learned to value education and their community. The leadership of the school has made tremendous improvements in the school management and relating school news to the community with the parent meetings. It has proved to be helpful and beneficial to all stake holders.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Arizona used the Arizona Instrument to Measure Standards (AIMS) to test students in reading and mathematics in grades 3 through 8 and 10, writing in grades 5, 6, 7, and 10, and in science in grades 4, 8 and 10. GreatSchools' profiles currently show AIMS mathematics, reading and writing results. 2013 AIMS grade 10 results represent on-track 10th graders for the 2013 test year. AIMS is a standards-based test, which means that it measures how well students have mastered Arizona learning standards. Students must pass the grade 10 AIMS in order to graduate. The goal is for all students to meet or exceed state standards on the test.
