Greenleaf is an amazing school with stellar staff! My son has attended since Kindergarten and is approaching 3rd grade. He is also a child who needs advanced placement for some of his educational needs. They do exceptionally well to meet his needs. Additionally, student safety is priority number one! Communication is never lacking and I am notified well in advance of all important, pertinent information. We LOVE Greenleaf Elementary!
Had a great experience with the 3rd grade teacher and with the phys ed teacher. Otherwise, found Greenleaf principal to be lacking in leadership skills and either blind or unwilling to see the issues with some of her teachers. Found the staff who had been there for years to be set in their methods of teaching and unwilling to try new things.
I considered moving to this school from another school in the district. Met a site council rep. and that made my decision. Very unimpressed. Also, a lot of concerns over their class sizes. The school is very full. Professional, engaged principal but a school with some challenges, and unimpressed by the pompous nature of the site rep. Need to more carefully select the parents they want representing their school.
I've watched my nieces and my little cousins @ this school. The staff is amazing! The kids find it hard to leave at the end of the year, and the older kids who are now in Junior High and High School always search for an excuse to go back and visit their old teachers. Our family had a house fire (my nieces and cousins live with us) and the school accommodated us with special buses from December until the end of the year so that our kids wouldn't have to change schools.
