Our preschooler loved this school until he graduated. We feel so lucky to have found Greene Gables, it is truly a special school. The teachers really devote themselves to each student, and care about their progress academically and emotionally. We recommend GG to all our friends.

My son went to Greene Gables from preschool until he graduated and we feel blessed. I'm writing this so that others can experience the amazing personalized, family environment that the Director, Sandy Smith and the teachers provide. Other school's managment continually changes, but not Greene Gables...Ms. Smith has been with the school for over 30 years and brings years of experience in the educational curriculum as well as a loving and caring atmosphere.

This school is fantastic! My daughter started going to this school at the age of three and she has learned so much. The class room environment is very friendly and the ratio is wonderful. The classes are small and your child or children get the chance to learn at their own pace.

Great school! Very strong curriculum. Parents involved in homework to reinforce the learning (uhlike other schools that I was visiting). Affordable tuition, nice and friendly teachers. School has 'open basis' policy (to appointment is necessary to visit). Good playground, large classes (size of class). 12 student/teacher ratio. School has dance, art, music classes. They control learning process by tests (even for Pre-k). Parent also involved in some other school activities (easter party, cristmass party, graduation party, etc.) Hot meal program available. Friendly policy. I like this school. Really!

This is an exceptional school. The teachers give a lot of attention to each student and the yard supervisors are attentive and dedicated to the safety and welfare of each child. The teachers make it a point to know each student personally and try to know each parent the same. This is a small school with a big heart for our children.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
