It is an excellent school, which encourages children to be better, not just in the academic area, but on values and principles. I feel very fortunate that my children are part of this prestigious school.

GA has been a great school for my kids! Provides a safe environment and my kids are excelling academically. Test scores rank higher than other local schools. Teachers are easy to talk to and email back promptly. Kids are not allowed to fall between the cracks.

This school was a tragic experience for my children, the first years had been great w/ a remarkable learning experience and great disoplin. However soon to come the school rankings had dropped tremendously. W/ my kids coming home daily crying because of bullying and especially favoritism through, the children who give money to the school, race (which the school is no where near diverse what so ever!!! I would worry about how your kids would feel their and to be honest I don't see what the diffrence is between that school and public school. I'd actually say the public schools are better. My children now attend public school and have enjoyed every second. If I could give no star for this school I surly would!!

Greensboro Academy is by far the best school in Greensboro. As a parent, I feel like I am always welcome and often invited to be a part of my child's education. The office staff is beyond excellent. Parents and students just love them. GA's approach to teaching and curriculum is beyond words. My children have thrived at this school and my questions, concerns and suggestions are always addressed. Our PTO goes over and above and I am thankful for them and the dedicated parents that volunteer so much of their time to be sure our school stays number one.

If you want your 6 year old to run because they do not have a tucked in shirt then this is the school for you. They believe that a child blurting out is punishable by laps around the playground during recess. While this is hard to believe in the age of bullying awareness, I guess a child can only be humiliated by the school. As you can tell, we left once we became aware of it. The teachers are good, it is sad the administration supports this POLICY. Shocking.

Academic excellence - a safe, nurturing environment to accelerate our son's education. He has attended for three years now and the results speak for themselves. You could not find a finer institution, public or private, to send your own child.

We love Greensboro Academy! I am so thankful every day that we have this alternative to our neighborhood schools. We have 3 children in GA spanning from elementary to middle school and are working on our 5th year. The parental involvement is unbeatable and contributes to the overall family-like environment. I love being a volunteer! My children are challenged acadmically, encouraged to be their best, and will leave the school leaps and bounds ahead of their peers from other schools. The staff is wonderful - so loving and helpful to the kids and parents. The teachers truly love teaching and make the kids feel excited to learn. I am so thankful for our GA experience!

We are fortunate to have our Kindergartener at Greensboro Academy! Students can learn in this environment, largely because of the moral focus, discipline, and parental involvement that is required. Best of all our son is happy to go to school everyday.

Greensboro Academy is excellent. We moved out of the area for about 3 years and could not wait to get our daughters back into the school. Our oldest is now at Northern High and clearly ahead of many of her peers. Our youngest is in 5th grade at GA and is doing so much better then when we lived in Phoenix, AZ.

First rate school. Superior to nearly all the Guilford County schools. Curriculum is much more extensive than in the county schools. Far better behavior demanded of the students and much, much, much more parent involvement.

My two children have been with the academy since its begining. Their development is without a doubt the best I could ever ask for, they enjoy the enviroment and really love the teachers that they have had in the past years. I highly recommed this school to everyone.

Thank goodness for Greensboro Academy. Our two youngest have been there since it opened. Without it, we would have been left with no affordable alternative to home schooling them since the schools they would have otherwise been assigned to are notorious for poor performance (due to lack of parental commitment and abysmal leadership from the Guilford County Schools central office). The curriculum is first rate and the parents are truly involved in their children's education.

Greensboro Academy is a wonderful place to build strong young minds and nurture knowledge as well as morals. The staff is great and make teaching students a personal experience. All 3 of my guys benefit from being there.
