WARNING.... This is a horrible school! Needs new principal and a whole new staff of caring teachers! State and community need to get involved immediately! It would be hard for me to live in a neighborhood where a school like This is so Terrible.

It is very sad and frustrating that my daughter School ( Elhiue Greenwood Leadership Academy K-5) don t seem to understand how bad a child can be affected because of a BULLY, my 6 year old is a victim of a BULLY!!! I have reported the incidents to the school, the Bully Hot line and even with the School District, and NO ONE seems to understand that my child is the one being abuse, no one seems to be able to do anything to keep my child safe at her school!!! All they do is tell me that they are working with the BULLY but it s very clear that what they are doing is not ENOUGH because that child keeps abusing and assaulting her classmates including my 6 year old daughter. They do assemblies at the schools about BULLYING but when they have a bully at the school they don't even do anything to keep a child safe!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My child had 3 teachers in one school year, now I am waiting to get a safety transfer so I can get my child out of that school.

I had my daughter in different schools in search of that perfect school. I first sent her to two private schools, then moved to Dedham to send her there. After much prayer and searching I decided that I did not need to pay for school at such a young age and could send her to a public schools as I attended. Well, we went to this school. To me this has been out of all the schools she attended the best school. The teachers care for my daughters education more than I have ever seen. They have even come directly to my house to drop off homework or to simply give her extra work. One teacher came in the summer to help her with her reading. The new Principal has made an effort and continues to make this a leadership school and let me tell you it is working. The school to me is amazing. Those children who have discipline issues mainly have to do with the kind of discipline they get a home. Having a successful has to do with both the parents involvent and the school, not just the school. I give the Elihu Greenwood Leadership Academy a "Green Leaf". 4.5 -5 stars in my opinion.

My children went there for half the school year. One of them had 4 different teachers in the first 2 months of school. The teachers had no control of the children and I found teachers yelling at some students as if they were in boot camp. I also pulled my children from the school immediately! WORSE SCHOOL EVER!

The Greenwood has a new principal and has worked with the parents and staff to make wonderful changes in the teaching and overall accountability of leadership within the students. The staff work well together and are all working towards the same goals for the school.

My daughter went there a few years ago, and we pulled her the first chance we got. From all reports it hasn't improved much. Mostly discipline problems. One of my daughters teachers gently suggested that she should be in a better school.

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.
