not so happy with this school, they don't have special programs for kids with difficulties on learning, I did not want my child on meds and the teacher was advising my child to put him on meds, even the principal told me!!!! I have send emails, faxes, letters and meetings with the principal and he said that the the school don't have enough funds to cover such special classes. the school is just a block and a half from my house that is why I take there this is the last year I'm sending my kids there

I attended Greynolds 4-5 grade I graduated in 1995 but things have changed since my 6 yr old attends there now but I'm unsatisfied with the school. We send our children with lots of supplies in the beginning of the school year. My child's teachers keep sending notes home saying she's unprepared. I don't understand where did the supplies we sent all go.

The school right now is in need of a make over and security. Anyone has access to the school grounds where our children are and I for the first time picked up my son from parent pick (hes aftercare) and there was no one watching the kids. This is extremely dangerous. We leave our kids in your hands and when no one is watching them something could happen. Please!!!!! improve your security!!!!!!

Current administration does not care for the students, parents, or physical appearance of the school. The school grounds are filthy. It's a shame. This had been such a beautiful school in the past.

I like the School but the only that you need to improve is the security because all doors are open at any time and this is not safe for our kids.

My,(our) experience with greynolds park, is that the staff puts the student first and with every possible resource the curruculum is presented in the self-confidence building format so that basic tools for life are gained,earned therefore the student develops an appetite for learning. The result a young person with superior self-esteem and balanced respect for others in the community and the world. ten stars would be closer to the gratitude for the dedication of those responsible. Sincerely D. Hutchens

Greynolds Park Elementary is a top knotch school with excellent administrators and teachers. I have lived in the neighborhood since 1977 and have seen many changes in the school. My children and grandchildren have been given a wonderful education from this school but more imporantly they have been made to feel safe and loved in their school environment. Who could ask for more?!

I am extremely impressed with the progress that GPES has made over the past couple years. Past Principal Bernard Osborn, his staff of teachers, para-professionals and the students have all done and extraordinary job with school improvement in every sense - FCAT Scores (GPES now an 'A' school),Increase in the Reading, Writing & Math achievement levels, continued yearly progress & meeting of proficiency targets, EESAC guidance, Increased Parental Involvement, the beautification of the premises, comradery, diversity of its students, workshops, physical fitness programs, ESOL, PTA, academic excellence programs, fundraising, etc. Current Principal, Dr. Alice Quarles not only carries on the legacy, but takes it a couple steps further by being actively involved and present at every event, securing only the best teachers & staff and striving for continuous improvement with the school improvement plan, goals and education for our children. Keep up the good work GPES!

I am very satisfied with Greynolds Park Elm. I have witnessed the progress the school has made throughout the years. I attended Greynolds and now my son attends. As a student I felt the teachers went far & beyond for the students and as a mother I still feel the same. I love the fact the school holds technology and new ways of learning as priorities. They are always working to improve. The staff is always friendly! Very safe as well. I highly recommend this school, especially to the parents of children of different backgrounds.

I live in the neighborhood where this school is located, and I must say that I have heard nothing but the most positive things about the faculty and staff. Furthermore, this school demographics show ethnic and cultural diversities that you usually don't find in South Florida. As a mother of two pre-schoolers, I have invested time in finding out about this school's credentials, and for the moment, I feel at ease knowing that my children are coming to this school.

In past years, this school's students have enjoyed a Music and Arts program that has included chorus, strings and dance. This year the principal has done away with these programs until after FCAT. This means that the children do not have anything to look forward to other than academics (FCAT training). The children that participated in these activities were expected to keep their academics grade up. This is not a failing school, yet the principal is treating these children as if it was simply because he wants the school to be an A school. Many teachers and parents are at odds with the principal for various reasons, but everyone is too afraid of retaliation to go up against him. Morale is the lowest that I have ever seen in years. A number of teachers and an assistant principal have left the school and others are going to leave because they feel they cannot continue to work under this principal. I have heard that there have been a number of letters sent to District, but nothing seems to be done to help the situation. On the exterior the school looks beautiful, but internally it is a school in crisis, but the principal seems to control and hide it well. I too am afraid for myself and my daughter, but I am willing to speak to up and attempt to make a difference for the children's sake as well as the teachers that I have come to know well, but I am only one.
