My child is in 1st grade - and she has had another terrific year. Her teachers are highly professional and hard working. She goes to school every day happy and excited to learn. School is all about teachers - and Growing Up Green's teachers are exceptional.

My children's teachers are always on point about his growths (strengths) and they note his areas of improvement in such a positive way that he is accountable in a way that allows for goal setting. It allows for children to learn and improve. They are amazingly patient and responsive to their developmental stage.

Ms. Strate is great! A wonderful, caring teacher who set my daughter on the right path as a kindergartener. She likes all of her teachers, but not as much as Ms. Strate.

My daughter is currently in her second year at GUGCS, and we have nothing but great things to say about the experience. She loves going to school, loves her teachers, and has developed confidence in herself. She is learning more and more each day, and most importantly, enjoys learning. Teachers are very warm, enthusiastic, and communicate well. The school encourages parental involvement, and provides a great deal of activities to expose the kids to.

Issues are discussed during morning meeting if relevant to all. The school looks at teaching green values that go hand in hand with caring for our environment

Matthew Greenberg who is the principal has a tendency of reporting parents to ACS , and also sends practically the whole entire school To the board of Ed for evaluations because of course if they find any delay with your child the school would receive extra funding
