I am SO impressed with the schools in the district! We moved here from MT and just completed our second year of school at Westside! My daughter is thrilled to go to school everyday! The teachers are great, the focus is on the children and the parents are all willing to get involved! I personolly feel that parent involvement is one of the number one qualities of a successful school! Way to go Greenbrier!

There is nothing to say that hasn't already been said. The test scores are some of the best in the state, but the scores only tell half of the story. The kids are the number one priority at Westside. The atmosphere is fun and upbeat, which makes kids want to come to school. It's not uncommon to see kids run to hug the principal! The only downside is that word has gotten out and the school is becoming crowded! Fortunately, plans are in the works for Greenbrier's third elementary school. If you have an elementary age child, you owe to them to come see what Greenbrier offers!

My child started second grade this year and she counted down the days until summer was over. She couldn't wait to get back! I am so impressed with the teachers and administration at Westside. The instruction is top-notch, the facilities are excellent and the extra activities give the children something to look forward to. I work in Little Rock, but the 45 mile commute into work is worth it so my child can attend Greenbrier Schools

Westside is the 'Best' side! The teachers and administrators put our kids first. I couldn't ask for a more dedicated group of people to trust my children with!

Excellent school!! Adminstrators, teachers, and all other staff seem to really put the children first. The district school board is committed to providing class sizes that are below state requirements in the lower grades. Parents are always welcomed to come and be apart of their child's education. We have been very please with all aspects.
