My daughter goes to this school... Mrs. Fornaro is the best !! She loves going to school..
We went to the Cary Park adjacent to Green Hope to use the facilities. At the same time several classes were also using the equipment, 4th and 1st grades. We were quite surprised to see teachers sitting on benches, talking amongst themselves, or reading instead of watching and interacting with the children during recess. There were several children preventing anyone attempting to use the playground equipment from doing so, yet no teacher even noticed because the teacher responsible was literally 50 feet from the kids. I just expected that during recess teachers were mingling with the kids, not standing at a distance talking and reading. It was disappointing.
Because my children love it - They are happy , engaged learners at a great school!
When my son first started Kindergarten I was not too excited about the school. But, since he has started I've come around. I really appreciate all the parent involvement. (The level in my son's class is astonishing!) I also appreciate that the teachers treat all (not just gifted or struggling) the kids with age appropriate learning opportunities.
We attended this school last year. My child had a horrible teacher. She had gifted students grade her papers. Papers sent home had many errors on them. My child brought home many of her work papers that had completely wrong answers that were never graded. This school is very overrated! The principal lacks leadership and does not respect parents.
We moved to Cary this summer and are new to Green Hope this year. So far, I have been more impressed by the teacher's aides and lunch room helpers than the teacher. She doesn't teach the children the 'basics' but instead is teaching towards the 'No Child Left Behind' test. My child went from being at the top of her class (in the state we moved from) to struggling with almost everything on a daily basis. Keep in mind, my frustrations are with this one teacher and not the school as a whole.
Green Hope is an excellent school with lots to offer students. Parents are very involved and offer numerous resources, in addition to the current resources that the school already offers. In addition, teachers at Green Hope are the 'best of the bunch.'
This was my first year at this school and I am very satisfied with all aspects of the school.The parent involvement is incredible and I belive that makes all the difference.
Green Hope comes with alot of hype and doesn't quite live up to it. Its not a bad school but not a great one either. Mediocrity is the name of the game. Parents seem content to have their children go their but that is where their involvement ends. Very average.
I have two daughters who attend GHE and we have been pleased with the school climate and adademic programs. I do feel that the school should offer more community service projects for the students to get involved with to enhance ther overall developement and leadership potential.
GHE is a very good school, where they have highly qualified teachers. Also the school is very well disciplined and have all the facilities.I reccoment to any one for this school.
I think this is a great school! My daughter has enjoyed attending first and second grade here. Thank you to the staff and volunteers at GHE!
