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 child loves this school. She has great teachers that support her and the new principal is wonderful. My child is always eager to tell me how her day at school went.
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.
