Greenfield Elementary School. My daughter graduates tomorrow and has a wonderful experience academically and socially at this school. It s administration and teachers are quite simply the best.

We have had such a wonderful experience at Greenfield with our two children. From the principal, to his administrator, to the leader of the PTA, to all of the teachers we have had the privilege of working with, they have all taken a great interest in our children. Each of them has taken an interest in not only teaching the curriculum, but also how to be a good human being. In 2009, the school was named as a "National School of Character"; one of 10 nationally that year. I have never felt more of a part of the community than I have while at Greenfield.

I have been a staff member at Greenfield for just shy of 10 years. Greenfield is a building with caring, knowledgable teachers, a wonderful principal, and kind and helpful secretaries. The diverse student population are hard working and engaged in 21st century learning. Greenfield staff, students, and families pride themselves in showing "The Greenfield Way": Respect, Responsibility, and Kindness and have been recognized as a National School of Character. It would be very hard to find a better school not only to give students an excellent differentiated education but also teach kids great character.

My daughter attendend Greenfield Elementary for less than 3 weeks. I witnessed two incidents that were inexcusable. I took my daughter out of the school in kindergarten. She is now in fifth grade. I will enroll her in the Birmingham Middle School and hope to have a positive experience under different leadership.

I am an alumni of Greenfield Elementary and I loved every moment of school. I loved my teachers, I loved the environment and I loved all of the opportunities that greenfield bestowed upon me. I WISH I lived in that neighborhood as an adult, because all of my children would most definitely be students at Greenfield Elementary. Keep up the great work! GO GATORS!

Hey, don't go after my daughter The noon aid you speak about is much too old and crabby to be still working there.

Greenfield is so much more than an elementary school. It is the center of a close knit, caring, nurturing community. The teachers are well educated, caring, and enthusiastic. The principal is wonderful. I can't recommend it enough.

Both of my children attended this outstanding school. They currently are in middle school and are both in advanced placement classes. From the moment you walk in the building everyone knows everyone. It is a true community school. The staff and admnistration are excellent and the environment here is warm and engaging. My family and I feel fortunate that our children were able to attend Greenfield Elementary!

This school is a mixed bag. To the Jan 19 post: $10 says I know who your kid's first grade teacher is! My older son had a great experience here, he has learning disabilities and had great teachers and support. Disaster for my younger son, who is very bright academically but has behavior and mental health challenges, dealt with very inappropriately. Principal was a nightmare to deal with, I completely agree with other comments, but I also know that others love him, so it depends. The "code" of behavior seems to encourage kids to narc on each other rather than actually build character. My son was certainly no angel, but he was also targeted and scapegoated for things that were actually physically impossible for him to have done. We begged for help and an assessment for him and got nothing. Bottom line: if you have a kid who falls within the academic norm or has only academic problems, then you'll be fine; wealthy school districts that are obsessed with test scores are very bad places for children and families coping with mental health issues, they want nothing to do with you. We moved him to a "worse" district and he is a million times better off.

I have two children in Greenfield. This is our last year. My second grader has a teacher that doesn't use proper english, which results in correcting my son often. My first graders teacher calls and asks if I have any recommendations on how to teach my son with a big personality. The principal is more concerned with image and faking a great environment. If you have an issue that comes up, he will talk over you about how great the place is and completely duck or shirk any responsiblility. He will not take any issues seriously. My rating or parent involvement is so high because I have to make up the slack due to poor teachers and poor leadership at the schoo.

My children have benefited greatly from the excellent staff and facilty at this school. Great programs for the children and the community and families are greatly involved in school activities and their children's success. This is a smaller school with a hometown feel where everyone knows who you are. My children love going to school everyday and we are so happy that we found Greenfield!

I am perplexed by the negative reviews! We have experienced Pierce and Greenfield and have been so pleased with the sense of community at Greenfield. The principal is very involved, visible, approachable - the key to success is leadership. It is a good sized school and you never get lost in the shuffle. There are a number of families that have open-enrolled there for that reason. I would highly recommend Greenfield.

We just moved from this district from West Bloomfield Public and we are extremely pleased with Greenfield School. The staff is very professional, the curriculum very agressive and the students well behaved, polite and eager to learn. I prefer the atmosphere at this school and would highly recommend it to anyone.

Our family is disappoited with Greenfield Elementary. Concerns by parents are ofen handled very poorly, and many staff members do not treat parents with respect. We will not be returing to Greenfield next year.

I couldn't disagree more with the last April review. I have personally never seen a more involved and accessible principal, not to mention one who has maximized the opportunities presented in the most diverse elementary school in Birmingham. We are moving from the school district and our biggest regret is leaving Greenfield.

Social activities aplenty, but parents don't even have the right to keep their children in for the multitude of recesses they have a day. Principal seems more concerned with burying head in the sand than dealing with issues of bullying and consistent bad behavior. Cannot recommend school.
