I have to absolutely agree with everything that the parent who posted on May 7, 2010 wrote. There is a huge degree of non-communication, along with a lack of respect and lack of discipline at this school. There are a FEW good teachers in the mix that if your child is lucky to get, they will actually learn something during the year. I was one of the lucky parents that had caring and encouraging teachers for my kids throughout their years there. (which is the ONLY reason I give this school 1 star.)
I am not sure who has been posting all these wonderful messages about Greenbriar because my opinion is totally different. My first issue is with the Principal who appears to avoid the issues of the minority community and this school is majority minority. My children have been at this school for 2 years and I am ready to take them out because the activities that they describe of student behavior makes me really concerned about the safety of my child. I am not happy with what I see taking place. I feel that the Principal likes to portray a certain image but if you go into the school and spend time as I have you will see a whole other side of Greenbriar. I also went to the Indiana Education site and this school has been on academic watch for the past five some kind of achievement! You be the judge.
All three of my girls attended Greenbriar. It is a warm and nurturing school with teachers who really care. A great school that cares about all its students.
We love this school! The teachers are amazing! I cannot say enough about how experienced and caring the teachers are; and the school administration is hands-on and actively listens to parents. The school is a safe and positive environment for our kids!
Greenbriar Elementary school has a great fellowship between the teachers, administrators, parents and teachers. My child is getting a great education at Greenbriar. Each of her teachers have gone over and beyond to meet with the parents for issues concerning their students. These are positive and not so positive issues. They have been very upbeat and respectful at all times. There has not been one time that I've felt that they didn't care. It's actually the opposite - they care greatly. The teachers regularly talk and brain storm on classroom issues. If what they are doing in the classroom doesn't work as it use to or as they hope it will, they will confer with each other to get it solved. They also work hard to get the parents involved. Greenbriar Elementary school should be chosen as a Great School!
My son loves his teacher! I went to visit before Christmas break and I have never seen a teacher use so much technology. An elementary school teacher using a computer projector is amazing to see. I can see why my son is always so excited to talk about class. I wish his teacher would loop up to 4th grade with my son next year.
Greenbriar is a wonderul school. My three kids love thier school and teachers. They go out of there way to help my kids in any way they can.
Principal is always there, I see him taking an active part of the school.
Greenbriar Elementary is an outstanding school with experienced, talented and caring teachers! My kids love their school and teachers, as do I! Greenbriar, like all other MSDWT schools, has high expectations and a variety of programs that my kids love! They can't wait to start Chinese afterschool class next month!
Greenbriar Elementary is a wonderful school! Our kids love their teachers, individualized lessons, data folders and high expectations! The principal took care of my requests for placement and the teachers he has brought in are very talented!
My children have had true wonderful teachers at this school, but the principal is destroying the morale of teachers, parents and students. The Washington Township administration is allowing him to chase away many good teachers and involved parent so he can run the school his way. It is truly being run into the ground.
This school is falling apart. Discipline does not exist students are allowed to do anything. The test scores have caused me to make a decision to move my kids out of the school. I truly think the Principal is out of touch with the community and needs to do more to get families involved.
This is a great school! The teachers and staff are wonderful and very helpful-don't let the numbers fool you. Stop by and check it out for yourself.
