Although Greenland is a small school and there is not a lot of money in the district, the entire Elementary and High School is full of compassion for students. I am especially proud of the staff and teachers for the safety of each child. My Grandson is in kindergarten and has a wonderful teacher, at the end of the day, he is still writing words and sounding out what he has learned during class. This school deserves to get praised...

We have been pleased with the 2 teachers our child has had at Greenland. Both have been compassionate toward and invested in their students. Our child has thrived academically. However, I feel that the principal tries to set a tone that DISCOURAGES parents from voicing opinions and concerns. He is a politician that would rather just maintain the status-quo rather than engaging genuinely with parents. Also, I feel there is a tone of intolerance toward people with different backgrounds and appearances. His school motto is "Respect". Well, we have respectfully tried to approach him on more than one occasion, and have not felt respected in return. I would rate him a ZERO if I could. We will be making other arrangements next year.

Greenland Elementary is an amazing school! Not only are the teachers top-notch, they truly care about our children. Coming from bigger schools myself, I was concerned about such a small school in a small community. I am pleasantly surprised to report my children are receiving a great education in a loving and nuturing environment. Keep up the good work Greenland Pirates!

PTO in our opinion stands for Parent Teacher Organization not Teacher Parent Organization there is at this time not hardley any participation as it is with the meeting starting at 5:00 pm it's hard for any parent to be there if they work. Now they have changed the meetings to 3:30 pm starting in January. Now it will be near impossible for any parent to attend. You pay $5.00 per couple for the PTO membership what good does that do if you can't attend the meetings. The school talks about more parent involment but how is that possible when the only concern is the convicience of the teachers not the parents and the children whom this is intended for.

Wow, Mrs. Sherer and Mrs. Cheevers are amazing teachers. They are proffessional and get along really well with the kids. They make learing fun and make every child feel special. I'm really glad I got to know them.

I'm very impressed with the attention my child receives. For a small school, Greenland is great.

Our daughter attended Greenland for 3 years. This year we are sending her somewhere else. The school is disorganized and the curriculum is lacking. In some cases the curriculum is flat out bad. This school sends out notifications for assemblies etc. at the last possible minute making it dificult for working parents toarrange to attend. Teacher turnover rate high.

Mr. Arrowood. Thanks for your pleasant comments. I work with yours and every other child in this school every day. Unfortunately, it is not our school that chooses not to teach math this young. It is the state. I promise you that next year, we will have them moving right along with math. First grade has a great focus on math. Your child wont be left behind. Parents of kindergarten children have to try to understand how hard this first year is for their little one. They are leaving parents maybe for the first time, required to learn a whole new set of rules, required to sit still, learn to eat and play together...the list goes on. We have to give them a break somewhere. We certainly don't want to burn them out their first year! You will see your desired results next year, I promise. You will be glad you are here.

I am new to the Greenland School District and have a daughter in kindergarten. I believe Ms. Wyatt is doing a fine job teaching our daughter to read. Communication seems to be fine, extracurricular activities seem to be available, and I have had no problems with the principal. My only wish is that the school district would add mathematics to the kindergarten curriculum. The focus on reading has resulted in extraordinary reading proficiency for our daughter's age. Yet, I don't want her to fall too far behind in math. I'm sure it's a balancing act. Overall, I am happy with our teachers, administration, and involved parents.

As a parent with kids that attend Greenland schools, I have nothing bad to say about the school at all. The teachers have the chance to educate our kids better than most big school that my older kids have attended. I think disciplining kids with 'love' is fine, but, teachers also need to make sure as well as Mr Lamb the 'love' also needs to have authority the kids need. Teachers and staff need to be firm and yet caring. I know some kids that need that. Farmington runs a tight ship with almost military atmosphere. Maybe Greenland could use a little of that. And we need more male teachers. I don't know why most of our male teachers are leaving, but I feel that Mr Lamb is starting to become the last man on the moon in the elementary school. Lets get the male authority figure back.

The new principal is horrible at best. I have no problems with the grade school teachers I have had 5 different onces (5th grader) and only one was extremely sorry. He didnt care for the kids nor what happened in his classroom it was more of a bother to be there with the kids then to teach them. I am proud that my child goes to Greenland--it is for the most part a great family atmosphere minus the principal. They have parents that help with both Girl Scouts and Cub Scouts. The Dad's that coach the baseball teams my son has been on is wonderful, as is the football teams and basketball. I have one that will start kindergarden next fall and I have no qualms about it other than the principal. If he was to go we would have a wonderful school.

Greenland Elementary School is a diamond in the making. What a great place to start your child's education and know that they are truly #1 not as just 'statistics' but as total persons, Every child here is a story yet to be told and both they and their families are genuinely cared about. Don't get lost in the numbers game...raise a 'whole child' at Greenland!
