My oldest daughter started her school year here back in 2008. Back then I was excited to have her registered at this school. Her kindergarten teacher was OK. The following year my second daughter started kinder here as well. Her kinder teacher was GREAT. My 1st grader's teacher was GREAT. As the years have passed I have been disliking the school. Due to the rude front office staff, to the horrible parking situation, there are quite a few teachers who are extremely mean to the children, and not to mention the added classrooms and students causing more traffic flow and more students in each class. My children are good students and are doing well, that's why I have not taken them out. I must say though, the school environment is a good one.

I love Greenville! I has been all of my children's school since 2000...even now my High schooler still returns to see his teachers and how the school has changed...It's given him and us as parents a wonderful foundation.

This school is absolutely ridiculous! I am a kindergarten parent, new to Greenville and my husband and I have never experienced such a lack of communication with the parents. Our children get progress reports and certain areas are marked that our child have not yet mastered, yet we have no idea each week what they are learning, what is being taught, what they are supposed to know so we can help our child at home. There are apparently assemblies but we were NEVER notified about, they stress that parent involvement is so important in our child's education but if we don't know what is going on, how can we help? All we are aware of is the homework they bring home, and notes they put in a folder. There is no dialogue with the teachers/administation whatsoever. I am extremely shocked that this school is even given the rating they have, it does no coincide with what we are experiencing. 9 out of 10 kids have a sibling that attend or have attended this school, so most parents are aware of 'how it works' here, but there is no support or empathy for parents who are new to the school, it's very sad, and this is supposed to be one of the better school in Santa Ana? Absolutely ridiculous...

Both My Children Come To This School... My Oldest is in the 2nd grade. It is a good school with the exception of the new traffic flow. I perferred the old way better. I have never waited so long in that school lot before. No matter how early I leave my home, I am always late to work cuz most of my time is spent waithing in the lot. Today, I literally was waiting for 20 mins. Parents are dropping their kids off on the side street in the back. It seems like it keeps getting worse. I suggust they bring the 'old' drop-off back or have that 'new' side street in the back be an entrance & an exit. This is one issue that has me wanting to switch schools.

This is my daughters' first year at Greenville. She's a kindergarten studen. So far, she loves the school, her teacher and the traffic helpers. And so do I. At this point I don't have any negative thoughts towards the school. :)

My daughter is about to enter 2nd grade and loves Greenville. She has been there since kindergarden. It's a great school with high academic standards and strict rules. Parking and drop off/pickup always been a huge drawback but finally something has been done to ease that. A second parking lot has been built along with small side street.

Greenville is a wonderful school. Most of the teachers have been teaching at Greenville for many, many years. The principal is great. The parking is horrendous, meaning there is no parking so really you cannot interact with your child's teacher or the other parents on a daily basis. These are the main drawbacks of the school. It is lacking community because the traffic and limited parking forces parents not to interact with the school environment. They simply stay in their cars and drive through to drop off their children and pick up their children. There is a select group of extremely involved parents that carry the weight of the school upon their shoulders. Out of 30 kids in my daughters class, I am the only parent that volunteers in the classroom. The school does however have high academic standards and is the best school in the Santa Ana Unified district.

Highly recommend this school for parents that care about their children's education. Parents be prepared to go back to school yourself. Lots of parent involvement. Well worth it in the end.

My daughter has gone to this school for 3 years now and excels in all that she does. She loves the teachers and I love the education she is receiving. They run a strict ship at this school but the kids never miss a beat! Thank you for providing what she needs both academically and socially.

I feel Greenville is the best Elementary School in the Santa Ana District. My daughter was well prepared thanks to her teacher, for the STAR test this year and her scores are at the Proficient Level. This is the test results I want to see for my daughter. I am confident my daughter is getting the education she deserves through Greenville.

My granddaughter attends this school and is very excited about going to school each day. I'm amazed when I see how much she has learned in such a short time. I think the teachers are great!

This school has very high expectations for students, both academically and socially. Students are expected to behave, and are shown 'good old-fashioned' manners. However, the academic curriculum is very up to date and students are encouraged to learn in many different ways. This is a very motivating school to be in, because everybody - parents, teachers, support staff - is excited about learning and being a responsible citizen.
