This school is not bad for being a pubic school. At greenglade you will find their good and bad teachers. at the end if you as a parent and your child are happy is all that really matters. Every child is different and sometimes a child does not have to be in the best school to be successful. I recommend this school.

My daughter attended this school for K-2 grade. It changes every year! It was from nice and sweet to strict and mean! I'm happy that my daughter has moved to PPA. Its a sweeter environment for my child.

As a Greenglade Gator Alumna and current teacher, Greenglade will continue to be my home away from home. The teachers, staff, students and parents work as a team in order to provide each other the very best! Go Gators!

Great school!!!Teachers, administration, parents, students. Excellent learning environment


Posted September 18, 2009

At Greenglade, every child is important. I know everyone says this, but we live it. Alumni come back to say how their years at Greenglade were the best years of their lives. Parents and teachers also come back and say the same. We joke and say, 'cut the chord', but once Greenglade gator always a Greenglade gator. Many of our students choose teaching as their profession just because they had that special teacher at Greenglade that inspired them to be a teacher and help others. Greenglade is everyone's home away from home.

I love the way the faculty and the staff care about the students. The students have always been our greatest asset. Throughout the years it has been a great small school. Everyone always raves about our school. I am now a teacher at the school. I used to be a parent. Love it both ways.

Greenglade is a great place for students to be introduced to the world of academia and social interaction. I developed some of my most important character traits during my years at Greenglade.

This was my daughters 1st year at Greenglade as a Kindergartener, I am so impressed by how much she learned and by how great her teacher was. I have to take off my hat to Ms. Carpentero, I have never meet a teacher more dedicated to her students. My daughter is a little shy and she just blossomed under this teachers care and guidence.

My son is finishing his kindergarten year here. I teach in the Archdiocese, so I have plenty of parochial options, and I (fortunately) can also afford some of the other private options. I AM SO GLAD THAT I CHOSE TO PUT HIM HERE. He is a good student, but somewhat shy, and the school had fostered his academic development while helping him adjust socially. He READS masterfully and writes in paragraphs! He draws with more talent than anyone in my family! He analyzes scientific concepts everywhere we go! He asks all kinds of informed questions about the election and about geography. I am amazed at the wonderful experience he has had. All this, with a teacher with only 3 years experience who just joined Greenglade this year. She's great; I expect others to be. I do wish there was more internet connection, but that matters less than the teaching.-Janette Sierra

My children attend Greenglade Elementary School and I am sad to say that this school continues to disintegrate by the years. The problem starts from the administration and scrolls itself down the ladder to the teachers. Teachers are being hired out favoritism, instead of professional qualities. Teachers are unhappy with the administration and reflect it on their students. Students are being taught out of order, just to cover the 'FCAT', therefore covering the grade for the school. There is no love in teaching, because the teachers have to be concerned only on the scores. Teachers are bothered by the parents involvement. If teachers, parents and students don t work together, nothing can get achieved. Luckily there are still teachers in the school in which your children can still count on, like Madera, Leon, White, and others who you know. I only have one question: WHAT HAS EDUCATION COME TO?

I am very happy with this school! My two kids have attended since kindergarden. My only feedback for the school is to be more internet friendly in order to post homeworks/assignments especially when kids are out sick. My kids love Ms. Rodriguez and Ms. Madera. This is still a small school with very involved parents! The principal and assistant principal show teamwork between them which is really important. Yolany Amador

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Florida used the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT 2.0) to test students in grades 3 through 10 in reading, 3 through 8 in math, in grades 5 and 8 in science and writing in grades 4, 8 and 10. The FCAT 2.0 is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Florida. The FCAT 2.0 has 5 achievement levels, with level 1 being the lowest and level 5 the highest. Florida considers scores of level 3 and higher to be on or above grade level. The goal is for all students to score at or above level 3.

Florida uses School Grades to measure the overall performance of a school each year on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). Each school is assigned a letter grade (A-F) based on three criteria: the overall performance on the FCAT, the percentage of eligible students who took the test, and whether or not students made progress in reading and math. The School Grades are calculated by adding points earned from each of the performance criteria listed above.
