Both my boys go to school here & we love it! Every teacher we've had so far has been supportive & very knowledgeable, they are passionate about teaching & making sure each student learning to the best of their abilities. Principal leadership is consistent & always open for input. And the parental support of this school is exceptional, our PTA is able to fund music, art, & parts of PE. Our children are receiving a well rounded education at Green Elementary.

This is our first year at Green. I have found the teachers to be professional and accomplished and the parents to be supportive and welcoming. My kindergartner is reading up a storm! I am very happy that we choose this school.

This is our first year at Green and I couldn't be more thrilled with the experience. My child loves his teacher and all the activities such as P.E., music and art. There is a tremendous amount of parent participation at the school and a great sense of community. We have felt very much a part of the Green family from when we first arrived.

My daughter started Kindergarten this year. I am so happy with this school. Her teacher Ms. Breier is awesome. She tells me not to pick her up so early after school because she wants to stay longer. Also, the principle takes interest in the students.

THE BEST SCHOOL I'VE EVER SEEN! THE TEACHERS AND STAFF GO WAY BEYOND OUT OF THEIR WAY FOR THESE CHILDREN! MY HUSBAND WENT THERE ALMOST 25 YRS AGO AND LOVED IT AND NOW WE HAVE OUR 3 GIRLS THAT GO THERE! :))

This is the best decision I have made in a long time for my children! What I mean by this is, I made the mistake of sending my oldest child elsewhere and we have had many issues. This time around I sent my 2 younger ones here and they love it. My Kindergartener doesn't want to miss a day of school!! What a big contrast from my now 7th grader!

Many many years ago I attended Green, along with my 2 younger siblings. It was wonderful and from the reviews, it still seems to be. Now, in my 30s, I am the mother of a 4 yr old little boy and I cant wait for him to go to Green.

I think Green is a great school to send your child. My husband is in the military and we move around alot and this school helped my son adjust and worked with him to catch up to the rest of the kids.... Most schools do not even try to help a kid that is behind and Green does!!!!

My child started at Green last year in Kindergarten. I was very impressed with his first year there. What wonderful teachers, and programs there are! He was exposed to music, gymnastics, and swim classes at the end of the year. We are definately excited to see what is to come for 1st grade. :)

Given the other outstanding reviews, we were surprisingly disappointed in this school. This school has a lot of potential, but the learning environment appears unhealthy. We are very hopeful new leadership will set a better tone for the whole school -- and shift the focus to the best interests of the kids, instead of on the latest gossip or rumor circulating among the adults.

We have been extremely happy with the whole village around the school. My kindergartner is just fininshing the 3 week swim classes offered to all students at Green by the PTA. The teachers, the parents and the staff of the school are dedicated and exceptional. My daughter's teacher Mr. Lemler has all the class reading, reading, reading - great job! The daily PE helps their brains focus on learning in the classroom. Great School - Glad we are there!

Simply put - the teachers are great and I love the diversity of the school. PE 5 days a week is great for children and they are very creative about making exercise a fun and learning experience. Mrs Kirsch was my daughters teacher last year and worked wonders with her. Peggy Crane set the standard for principals, we hope Chip Dale can build on her success.

My child just finished his first year at Green as a Kindergardner. I was quite anxious as it was my first experience in sending my child to Grade school. I was absolutely amazed at the level of performance of all involved in my sons education in and out of the classroom. I have never seen a more dedicated staff, teachers and principal, they were like one unit all rooting for every child. The principal made daily visits in the classroom and knew my son by name, not by misbehaving but by having the ability to know every child in the school by name,grade and classroom. The teachers were encouraging not only to my son but to me as weel. They encouraged me to work in the classroom and it became weekly. I was thought of as a teacher to them not a nosy parent. I love Green Elementary School.

We have been very pleased with the nurturing environment at green elementary. Our daughter is in first grade and all she wants to do is read. The teachers and administration are very approachable and exhibit a helpfull and genuinely interested demeanor. The physical education program is superb and they are true to thier focus of fostering a positive self image through personal excellence. We have been very pleased with green.

My daughter has had an exceptionally outstanding school experience thanks to the nurturing, high caliber teachers and staff at Green. The quality of the academic and athletic program is second to none and every year since kinder I've been astounded by the level of work given to the students. In the 4th grade she was doing math I'm sure I wasn't doing until 6th grade (Yay! Ms. Maze!); and in this age of childhood obesity, where else do kids still get PE 5 days a week? I would (and have) recommend Green to any parent and it will be a sad day for us when she graduates this June. But the great memories, sense of confidence and knowledge she has acquired at Green will last a lifetime!

My son is in kindergarten at Green and loves it. He loves the principle, his teacher Mr. Lemler, the system, etc. The only thing he doesn't like is the school lunch.

My Daughter is in first grade and loves it at Green. We researched quite of few grade school and were fortunate to have a lot of calls from the school choice lottery. Green was our top choice and we have found the teachers and pricipals to be top notch, motivated and available to us. The PE magnet program is well done too. There is a great sense of community and support at this school as well as continually improving the already top notch test scores. This school is diverse and all groups perform well on test scores.

A great magnet school with caring teachers and administration. Strong science fair emphasis in 4-6th grades. It's a sports magnate that holds many activities including a junior olympics. The school is located in an upper income, mostly white neighborhood and the magnate attracts minority kids who are bused in. Never had any problems with my two children who attended.

I have a kindergartener attending Green Elementary and he is having a blast. He is on top of his class in academics and the school reinforces physical education as a learning tool: healthy body, healthy mind. Green Elementary School should be the model for all elementary schools in San Diego county.

Thank goodness for Green Elementary! My daughter came here feeling insecure from her past school experience and has just excelled! The staff all the way from the principal to the custodian is just wonderful! They truly take the time to get to know your child and their needs! The academics and physical education are just great! San Diego needs more schools like this! Thank you Green!

Myron Green Elementary has turned out to be the diamond in the rough. Our son enjoys the physical education classes that Green brings to him and other children. The principal, Ms. Madden has been just wonderful in every area. Very open-door minded. All of the techers that we have met are intellegent, caring individuals that make all of the students feel welcome. Thanks Green for being the best neighborhood school!
