My brother and I had attended this school for four years it is a great school and has a friendly environment. I wish i could go back to Williamgreen even though im about to go to high school.In the beginning i was struggling with English so they put me in tutoring which helped in so many ways.After that i was put in homework club which was a great opportunity.I could go on and on about how great of a school it is but that ll take a lifetime.So I recommend this school to a parent that has a child 5 through 10( they used to have preschool and sixth but i think that's changed)they go to this school, it a great learning environment and has so many outlets for a kids to express them selves. These are the best teachers at this school: Ms. Gallup,Ms. Sweet, Ms. Hoffman, and many more.

My daughter is a second grader at William Green School and last year we had a great experience with the RAP after school program. She was in the dance group and performed at varies events.I feel that dancing in front of all those people gives her lots of confidence, which hopefully will help her in life. The RAP teachers are great and I would highly recommend everyone to take advantage of having such a great program at William Green by place your children in a safe environment and giving your children a great experience with the teachers that will help them as they grow. I hope that my child has a great time this year as she did last year.

I attended this school for six years before having to leave. I enjoyed this school for ever. Some of my life choices have been based on this school. If you are a parent and is thinking about sending your child there it will be one amazing decision you could everer make.

My child has just started school this year. He is finishing is kindergarden year and his teacher is great! The assistant principal is great too (unfortunatly he is leaving)! I think the staff need to be more informed as do us the parents. I call to get info. about any sort of graduation or celebration for the Kindergarden class and they say I have to talk to my childs teacher. Well I work and don't get a chance to see her very often, so that doesn't help me much. I also think that the performances and celebrations we are told about need to be at a time that all parents can come. I work from 8am to 4:30pm and can not make a singing performance at 11:30am. I feel bad I miss it and my son is sad too. That isn't fair for the kids! That needs to be addressed!

William Green is a great school, I have three kids, two of them in fifth an preeschool, and the other one already in high school, but attended W.G. too, I have nothing but good experiences. The principal is always there when you need him, the teachers knows each of the students and their needs, I like the activities after school... they have everything that the kids need to be sucessful. I'm very proud of OUR school.

I had attended this school for 7 straight years. From kindergarden to the sixth grade. I just wanted to share the great information on William Green since I've been there for 7 years, (now I'm a Junior at Lawndale High School) William Green has great teachers. Unlike a lot of teachers, the teachers in William Green are so involved with their students academic skills and involved in their life when something goes wrong. The teachers there know exactly what they are doing.

My daughter is in the 5th grade and has attended William Green for all of her Elementary school years. She has really enjoyed her time there and her teachers have all been great. They work closely with the students and call the teachers to inform them of any issues. I think this school is doing a very good job. There are no extracurricular activities that I know of and that's really a shame because I think this is the only thing they are missing. Thank you,

Both of my children have had wonderful learning experiences at William Green School! Their teachers have been exceptional, and have always challenged my kids to do their personal best. As a result, both of them have consistently excelled in their academics. I have been fortunate enough to spend a great deal of time in the classroom. I have always been welcomed and encouraged to be involved, by both teachers and administrators. We will miss everyone at William Green!

This is a great school. The teachers and principals are very dedicated to this school and their students. Staff is very ambitious about their work and focuses very much on the best in every child. Itis very comfortable and gives a homelike school environment.

William Green provides an excellent academic environment. There is a strong and consistent presence of parental involvement, from the PTA, to the School Advisory Council, African American Leadership Committee, etc. The school provides before and after school child care. Tutoring for the kids for 1.5 hours after school. The child can play various sports including soccer, hockey, basketball, and cheerleading. Music and Art is available twice a week for the students. The Vice Principal oversees the student council, and student newspaper and yearbook. All of these activities expose the children to various skill sets and career options. The students work in the student store which acts as year long fundraiser for student activities. The 6th graders, enjoys 4 days of Science Camp at Camp Highland in San Bernadino. My daughters will be graduating in June 2006. As I've told Mr. McCray, Principal, it saddens me that they must leave Green School.

Well I have to say that the school is one of the best of the schools that I have ever encountered which is a whole lot to say about it because the teachers are always on top of all homework and class work that is being given no matter if they are doing bad. They take their time to stay after hours or to talk to the parents to better the child work and it shows in their progress.
