It's only day three for my fourth grader and I'm seriously considering taking her out of this school. The first thing I noticed about this school is that it was over 90 degrees inside during the open house. The first day of school it was even worse. Today is day three and my child begged me not to send her to school because it's so hot. There are no fans or air conditioning. Surely, they're working on something to accommodate cooler conditions for the students and staff? I've called both principals three times, the nurse once and the front desk leaving messages every time. No one has returned my calls. Perhaps it's time to seriously consider Home Schooling.

As a pupil here from 2010-2013 I absolutely love the teachers that I've had! The school is not the best. I do not like the meals that are served. The ELT program is awful. The upper classes aren't the best behaved students. The school also does not have the best handle on bullying. Special education students do not have the best options, either.

In general, this school is average...not the best, not the worst. The best thing about it is the selection of interesting and enriching ELT (extended learning time) choices it offers. The worst thing is, there is not a lot of parent-teacher interaction that I have seen. The school feels like a fortress that parents are just not welcome at. You want your child safe in school, of course...but this goes beyond that. It's almost like" what happens here, stays here."

Greenfield Middle School has an outstanding supportive staff committed to the success of all students. GMS has Responsive Classrooms, two year looping programs, extended learning time which allows every student to participate in enrichment programs such as Tae Kwon Doe, African Drumming, Woodshop, Band, Community Service Projects, Sculpture, Dance, Rock Band, Theater, Film Production, and Lego Robotics. My children enjoy GMS and I hope the High School is as responsive to my children.

Very poor quality teaching of the most important basics and they try to cover this up with loads of 'enrichments' that they let anyone teach. We need to get into a good college. There is an attitude of 'good enough for greenfield'. We need excellence.

As a teacher at Greenfield Middle School, I am proud of the work we do here. The students and adults in the building are all working to continuously improve our school and comunity. We have committed to a social contract and we uphold by communicating with each other. We have a variety of programs and enrichment classes which we offer to all students through the Extended Learning Time (ELT) Grant Program. Students participate in activities which include Band, Sports, and GMS-TV. There is also an excellent Afterschool program offered through the HEC 21st Century Afterschool Program and students have more opportunities to learn through exploration.

Like any school, you get out of it what you put into it. My kids have done private and public, and the results are that private is more demanding that you be an independent learner, and self motivated. But you can get a good education here as well, just the teachers have to conduct themselves so that they follow public school rules which is a restriction on how they assign work and create study habits. Obviously, private can kick disruptive kids out where Greenfield Middle School cannot and are forced to give more time and attention to the troubled child than the one with a learning disability. What we have learned is that school needs the time and attention we gave our private school, and the outcome is the same, but if you don't have time to be involved in public schools, go to private.
