Profile Completeness

BASIC

Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

My son is a 2nd grader at Greenwood. We have had a wonderful experience with the staff. The teachers are wonderful and in tune to the childrens needs and talents. My husband also went to Greenwood as a child.

My fourth and youngest child is now at Greenwood. We have had a wonderful experience over the course of the past 8 years there. Superior teachers, good neighbors, and a beautiful urban setting.

Greenwood is a wonderful school with a bonus: racial & economic diversity. It is a traditional school and at times it almost feels like a private school since some of the wealthiest families in Des Moines send their children here. The principal is delightful and easily accessible. Fantastic after-school (Metro) program as well as extracurricular French, Spanish lessons and many special programs. Very involved parental community and active PTA.
