This is a very busy school, but they do a great job handling everyone. My little one just started there and she loves it. I can't believe how much she learned in 1/2 a year!!

I pulled my kids out of a private school in Evergreen Park...best choice we ever made!! Education is most important here. The atmosphere of the school is happy and supportive. The principal cares about the school!!! It is a really great school...I would recommend it to any family with kids of all levels..you will not be disappointed!

I absolutely love this school. I went there as a child and now my son goes there and I couldn't be more satisfied with the education he is getting. He loves his teachers, the staff, and his classmates. The involvement from volunteers and parents and staff to make the school better and help the children do their very best is outstanding and I absolutely love all the fundraising opportunities. I dont agree with the negative reviews at all. I believe that the amount of effort you put forth is what you get in return. I continue to be impressed and satisfied.

Whoever posted the review about the Principal at Mt Greenwood School must not have children there. The Principal has worked very hard to get an addition for the school, put hard working teachers on staff, brought up scores, etc. She is very involved with parents, students, teachers and the community. I think the person who wrote the unflattering comments about the Principal has a beef with the Principal. Often the truth hurts when your told something about your child that you don't want to hear.


Posted September 27, 2012

The school has definitely changed in the last 10 years. The principal and vice principal has an open door policy to meet with any parent at any time. Information is sent out on a regular basis keeping the parents informed. The kids are held to high expectations. I am happy we are here.

The teachers and staff are great with the exception of a few nut jobs sprinkled in here and there. Principle however is really quite full of herself and I think it would do her some good to be humbled a bit. Let's say shipping her over to a under performing school in Englwood where her expertise in educating is much more needed and appreciated. She really cares about nothing else but her "ISAT" scores and does not want anything to do with students that would drag that score down. If she were to leave this school it could be a great school.

The teachers and staff are great. I have two children who attend the school and I am impressed. Yes their is homework and that is a good thing. Several years ago I was leary of sending my kids to a public school and I went for a tour. The current principal was vice principal then and her attitude and leadership convinced me to give it a try and I am very happy with the results. Education takes more than just a teacher parents have to be involved too. the staff is very good the extra curicular activites at the school are vastly improved over the past few years and the community has really started to get behind this school. The hard work has been rewarded with test scores and school rankings. Hopefully, no one at the chicago board of ed starts to meddle with the succes the school has enjoyed.

It is not the school and certainly not the teachers who are to blame for the culture and attitude there. All they do is follow directives from the School Board and the Mayor. The public needs to wake up and hold those people and offices accountable for mistreatment of our students.

No one ever said being a parent is easy let alone for 4 children. It would seem to me that maybe teaching your kids how to manage their time and how to accomplish tough assignments head on would be a much better use of your time rather than teaching/blaming them/school for parental involvement in their education and the sometimes challenging obstacles they will face throughout their educational lives. So don't flip out on them/school on how you don't have time for them and their homework. Parenting is hard work that is never ending. "Too bad the kids are not that important. "

I understand the frustration of too much homework. I also detest the class work sent home for homework when it has not taught that day due to whatever reason. My second grader is afraid of lunch and won't eat at school but they do not get enough time. I have 4 boys in school, imagine the amount of homework! They all need help...especially when the teacher is so rushed she won't answer questions. I thought teachers were to teach and not just assign work for the parents to teach or reteach. How do working people do this!? Also if they get outside for recess most of the time they are not allowed on the play equipement. At one point one of my children required mental health care due to his classroom setting. ThIs very proffessional man could not believe how this school was run. He found it very discouraging to think about the children caught in this non caring non responsive atmosphere. The child doesn't come first here, only that his nwea scores keep improving. Nothing is more important than the schools image. Too bad the kids are not that important.

Mount Greenwood Elementary School has fantastic teachers who work hard to help every student achieve his/her potential. Our principal, Ms. Reidy, is a strong advocate for our children.

Mt. Greenwood is anything but a great public school. Academically maybe but the homework is totally outrageous! When a child spends more time doing homework and has little time to do other things, there is a problem. What are teachers getting paid for?????? The new principal is anything but fair and she is more interested in keeping up 'school academic standards' than trying to help those who are not braniacs. Not every child is a superstar and each child is entitled to a free and appropriate education. There are things going on in the school and children whose parents take a stand for their children are told not to say anything when they go home. I am seriously thinking about risking going broke and sending them to parochial school. Children should enjoy learning and not feel like so inundated or fearful that they no longer want to go to school.

This school is by far the best school on the south side. I moved over from a nearby school and can not believe the difference. The former assistant prinicpal has taken the principal position and has kept the school running very organized and keeps her expectiations of the kids very high. The teachers care about the kids and want them to be successful. I am so happy I enrolled them at mount greenwood and wish I had done it earlier.

The best decision I ever made was to take my child out of the local catholic school and put her at MTG. She is doing wonderful and enjoys going to school. The teachers are there to work with you. The administration looks out for the best interest of the child and encourages me to come in the building any time I would like. I will send my next two children to MTG without any hesitation!

I currently have my daughter in Kindergarten. I am not excited about the education she is getting. Her pre-k class was more advanced. She is bored and unstimulated. I dislike the 1/2 day class idea 10:40-1:45. I don't think it's fair for her or the teacher to teach/learn is such short amount of time.

last year my two sons transfered to Mt. Greenwood, the best thing I could have done for them and my family. They are challenged and are learning at a higher level than at their previous school. I am very pleased with Mt. Greenwood, the teachers, principal, the staff and the children. I am hopeful this year will be a successful year!

This school is rapidly becoming one of the finest public schools in the Chicago area. The Principal has been doing a superb job,the Vice Principal is excellent, and parental involvement continues to grow. The test scores are skyrocketing! I am proud to have our children in this wonderful school!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Illinois used the Illinois Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 4 and 7 in science. The ISAT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Illinois. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

In 2013 the Illinois State Board of Education raised the performance expectations for the ISAT in reading and math. These expectations have been adjusted to better align with the Common Core State Standards, a multi-state initiative that established year-by-year guidelines outlining the grade-specific skills and content students need to stay on the path to college and career readiness. The higher expectations of the new standards will result in a downward shift of where students rank in meeting or exceeding standards.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Illinois used the Illinois Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 4 and 7 in science. The ISAT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Illinois. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

In 2013 the Illinois State Board of Education raised the performance expectations for the ISAT in reading and math. These expectations have been adjusted to better align with the Common Core State Standards, a multi-state initiative that established year-by-year guidelines outlining the grade-specific skills and content students need to stay on the path to college and career readiness. The higher expectations of the new standards will result in a downward shift of where students rank in meeting or exceeding standards.

The different student groups are identified by the Illinois State Board of Education. If there are a small number of students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
